James Corden to join John Bishop for new in-depth interview show
James Corden will join John Bishop on the first episode of Bishop’s brand new interview series, John Bishop: In Conversation With… on W.
The Late Late Show star is amongst a list of high-profile celebrity names who will be sitting down with comedian Bishop for an hour-long episode, which will air on W on September 1, 2016.
Other celebrities confirmed for the series include Rupert Everett, Charlotte Church, Jo Brand, Steve Coogan, Sir Lenny Henry, Freddie Flintoff, Miriam Margolyes, Desert Island Discs’ presenter Kirsty Young and The Last Leg co-host Alex Brooker.
On the premiere episode, Corden talks about his big break on Fat Friends, his work creating Gavin and Stacey for BBC Three and his recent success as American late night chat show host.
Bishop believes his chat show will be different to existing chat shows, explaining: “There are several excellent talk shows out there, but I think there’s a real gap in the market for a show featuring an hour-long interview, which allows my guest and I to chat in greater depth.
“I’m delighted that so many high profile names agreed to be interviewed for this series. Each of my 10 guests were fascinating to chat to and I genuinely discovered things about them that I didn’t know before.”
