A spate of new interviews and nuggets has peppered the Internet in advance of the premiere of Horne & Corden Tuesday night. The new sketch comedy begins it’s six-episode run March 10th, 10:30pm on BBC3. We thought we’d pull together some of the best coverage, including our own past posts.
In the descriptive if plainly titled, “James Corden and Mathew Horne: Interview,” the Telegraph takes a broad view of the comedic duo, ranging from the upcoming Horne & Corden to Lesbian Vampire Killers (in theaters 20 Mar) to their recent stint hosting the 2009 BRIT Awards with Kylie Minogue. They also talk about their boys’ friendship, including recent birthday gifts (a MacBook from Horne to Corden and an Alexander McQueen suitcase from Corden to Horne). And, of course, coverage of the upcoming show itself, including it’s self-proclaimed status as the most “gay friendly” around.
Over at the Times Online, “Horne & Corden take on the world” starts with the duo’s meteoric rise to fame on the success of Gavin & Stacey. It was on the set where the two started goofing around and pulling together the nuggets of the sketches and characters that make up Horne and Corden today. Says Corden on the genesis of the sketch show, “We realised the crew on Gavin & Stacey were quoting some of our gags, so we thought: shall we see?” The interview also ranges into the troubles of fame and how the boys are handling their new found success. Corden reveals he definitely felt some tension from other comics (he thinks because he and Horne hadn’t “paid their dues”) backstage at the Secret Policeman’s Ball.
‘It’s not my fault I’ve got a Bafta,’ Corden says plaintively. ‘No, sorry, I didn’t mean that.’
He waits for a perfect beat. ‘I meant Baftas.'”
