Tony-winning funnyman James Corden has crossed the pond back to London after a successful Broadway run in One Man, Two Guvnors, and on November 25, he’ll be rubbing elbows with hosts Anna Wintour, Christopher Bailey and Evgeny Lebedev as the presenter of the 58th annual London Evening Standard Awards.
Held at London’s Savoy Hotel, the London Evening Standard Awards are selected by a panel of theater critics, including Evening Standard editor Sarah Sands, Broadway.com London correspondent Matt Wolf (The International Herald Tribune), Henry Hitchings (London Evening Standard), Georgina Brown (Mail on Sunday), Susannah Clapp (The Observer), Libby Purves (The Times) and Charles Spencer (The Daily Telegraph).
The London Evening Standard Awards have been presented annually since 1955. Past winners include Richard Burton, Laurence Olivier, Maggie Smith, Rebecca Redgrave, Michael Gambon, Gwenyth Paltrow and Patrick Stewart.
Corden starred in The History Boys both in London and on Broadway, as well as the play’s film adaptation. After starring in One Man, Two Guvnors in the West End, he earned a Tony Award for his performance in the 2012 production on Broadway. Corden’s TV credits include Horne & Corden and Gavin & Stacey.
