"We cannot wait to see what he has in store for us this year at the Tony Awards!"

"Hilarious. Insanely talented. Musical savant. Brilliantly unpredictable. James Corden!" said executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss.

James Corden is an Emmy Award-winning, multifaceted performer, host, writer and producer with accomplishments that span television, theater, film and comedy. Individually, Corden has won seven Emmy Awards, for his work on THE LATE LATE SHOW, the "Carpool Karaoke" series for Apple Music, and "The 70th Annual Tony Awards."
