Bio

James Corden is an English actor, comedian, television comedy writer, producer and presenter best known as the co-creator, co-writer and co-star of the sitcom Gavin & Stacey (2007–2010), for which he won the BAFTA Television Award for Best Comedy Performance.

Corden was born in Buckinghamshire, UK. He studied drama at the Jackie Palmer Stage School before going on to Holmer Green Senior School, near High Wycombe.

However, he admits that he had very little academic ambition and turned to acting, making his screen debut in the monochrome Shane Meadows film Twenty Four Seven (1997).

After taking small roles in television drama series, he landed his first notable role as the teenage member of a slimming club in the British TV comedy-drama Fat Friends.

Shortly afterwards, he appeared on the London stage in Alan Bennett's play The History Boys, taking part in its subsequent international tour, as well as the cinema adaptation.

Whilst working on Fat Friends he met the Welsh actress Ruth Jones and, between them, they fashioned the sitcom (in which both also appear) Gavin & Stacey, the big hit of the 2007 season, winning British Film Academy awards for them both as Best Comedy Show and for James as Best Comedy Actor.

He also persuaded three of the erstwhile History Boys to make cameo appearances as Gavin's stag party friends.

In February 2013, Corden hosted the BRIT Awards for the fourth time.
