    James Corden is pure talent. Funny, witty, you can see his passion and dedication he put in, in every show especially in this performance. He earned everyone's respect in the audience.

    We should pay people to go to the theater, music concerts and sports events. I'm not kidding. Robots do our shit now. Theater tickets are expensive. Extremely good theater needs fairly bad local theater to make the best better, but most people don't have jobs or money to attend cultural events. What's the point of having great live entertainment if only a few privileged bastards can afford to experience them? It's the same thing that happened with Henry Ford about 100 years ago. I live in a medium-sized city that has at least 4 or 5 professional plays on 3 or 4 proper theaters going on every weekend. The price is 6 times as much as the movieplex, and I've been to neither in the past 5 years or so. I've loved cinema and arts since I was born, so is not like I don't want to go. The price is just prohibitive for regular people, even though I think the artists deserve every cent. Now if I want to buy a car, get married or have children, there's plenty of subsidy for that. For experiencing art and broadening my horizons, there's no incentive at all. This has to change, otherwise we're already on Brave New World days. And as a 'gray', I tell you we're not fucking happy. Thank Jah for TV, streaming and piratebay though. At least this non-live crap I can afford.
