Before hosting a network late-night show and impressing pop stars like Adele and Bieber with his Carpool Karaoke pipes, James Corden won a Tony for his starring role in Richard Bean’s uproarious comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, a farcical mix of satire, songs, slapstick and well-timed zingers. Now the West End and Broadway hit returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday. Set in the 1960s, the play follows the easily-confused Francis Henshall, who’s become entangled with working for two local criminals and is desperately trying to keep each of them from finding out that he’s working for the other. Sounds simple, right? Cue the hilarity and try to keep up when One Man, Two Guvnors comes to the big screen at San Jose’s Hammer Theatre Center.
