The Grammy Awards aren’t exactly renowned for great comedy, but when you invite James Corden along and give him a mic, who knows where you’ll end up. In this case it was a celebrity sketch, with various well known characters ‘auditioning’ to read the audio book version of Fire and Fury.
The book has by far been the most talked about this year, and it’s not showing any signs of going away. In this sketch excerpts from the book are read out by various celebrity readers, egged on by Corden. Some well know names joined in with John Legend, Snoop Dogg, and even Cher reading a few lines.
Whatever you think of the current political situation, Corden hosts this sketch with aplomb. It’s hilarious, and as always he saves the best until last.
His style has been copied, styled out, and parodied the world over, referenced in popular culture, and we have selected some of our favourite Seuss parodies from the years.
Enjoy these very silly parodies and clever covers dedicated to Dr Seuss.
Each comedian takes on a figure or story from history and explains in as much factual detail as possible who they were and what they became known for.
The comedian gets as sloshed as they possibly can while attempting to still speak coherently- telling us the tale of their historical figure. As well as some of the big royal and military names through history, they touch on some of our best known writers- Byron, Potter, Shelley, and more…

Comedian and actor Rob Delaney (Catastrophe, Deadpool 2), had learned Makaton for his son Henry who was diagnosed with a brain tumour as a baby. Sadly Henry passed away in 2018 age 2 and a half, but Rob, with the help of CBeebies, honours him by showing how inclusive and accessible Makaton can be.
Check out the sweet CBeebies story told by Rob Delaney himself using Makaton sign language. The story is Ten in the Bed, written and illustrated by Penny Dale.
