Can we keep JAMES CORDEN in New York for good? He is so MAD TALENTED and HILARIOUS you just want MORE OF HIM. Corden announces himself as a BLAZING STAR. Hail to the CLOWN PRINCE of this ROYAL SCREAM.

Why See One Man, Two Guvnors?

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancee's dad.

But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers' Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guv'nors apart. Simple.

In Bean's One Man, Two Guvnors, sex, food and money are high on the agenda.
