Can we please at least agree that he's funnier than Paddy McGuiness and Peter Kay?

He's really not. The other two might be crap but Corden is genuinely the most unfunny excuse for a comedian I've ever seen - and I wasn't joking when I said I've seen Stan Boardman live!

Which is still funnier (though only slightly) than any amount of Corden :P

I'm into sports and I found the Corden stuff gash. He's just not funny.

As a noisy fat bloke he's got some limited comic appeal, but if I wanted that I could just go down the pub.

Oh well, it looks like I'm on my own on this one then. :lol:
I certainly don't think he's a comedy genius or anything but I found his Sportsman of the Year Awards rant stuff brilliant.

James Corden is overrated.

Also, is there any decent new horror films out?
Ones that were made after paranormal activity, which is absolutely the worst film i'v seen in two years..

I had no idea those awards were still going, they allways tended to get 'best' confused with 'best selling'. who won? Bioshock and Modern Warfare right?

Yeah, they've got bigger. Dara was a great host, need Charlie Brooker to do it next.

CoD didn't win a single award, same for Bioshock!

Most the awards went to Uncharted and Arkham Asylum. ;eft 4 Dead 2, Empire Total War and Flower (the fcuking oddly enjoyable game) got some too.

edit: my bad, CoD won the only award that was voted for, but no other.

Wow, I'm both suprised and impressed that they didn't give them anything (Bioshock could maybe get away with getting something for being atmospheric and pretty). Some wierd choices to fill their place though.

Yeah, I could understand Arkham Asylum somewhat, but not Uncharted 2...

So the PS3 could get a look in with its lonely exclusive I suppose.
Found a youtube thing of the ceremony and watching it now.

I think both Paddy and Peter Kay are funny when they don't have to appeal to fucktards.

Neither are geniuses, but they no way near as bad as Corden.

Paddy can be very funny if he is left on his own. but Peter Kay is as humerlous as James Corden in my opinion. neither of them do or say anything funny. the only comedians that have really made me laugh over the last couple of years are Franky Boyle and Jimmy Carr. i think the fact they are willing to take the piss out of someone and not care how far and disgusting the joke goes, is funny. where as a joke about a wet biscuit is not.
