James Embarrasses Himself in Book Quiz w/ Lake Bell & Rob Corddry

  • Published: 24 September 2019
  • James Corden invites his guests Rob Corddry and Lake Bell to compete in a literary quiz show. But James cannot figure out why bookworms Rob and Lake get questions about literary classics such as The Great Gatsby and The Iliad, and he only gets questions about "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." Book Worms is hosted by Professor Phil Collins, played by Louis Waymouth.

                When you’re marveling at the placement and quality of Lake Bell’s tattoos only to Google and discover she’s married to Scott Campbell. Well that explains it.

                                    Gatsby is no big deal. It's only 9 chapters. I taught it to American Lit classes for years.

                                                  5:26 That is 100% outtake. James Corden couldn't keep up with a straight face.

                                                      The great Gatsby was boring as balls, not sure why people like it. If my high school teacher didn't make me read it there's no way in hell I would have.
