James Corden sat down with Stephen Colbert on Friday night’s episode of The Late Show and discussed the medal he received for being made an Officer of the British Empire (an OBE).
Colbert was quick to standup and salute the Late Late Show host before asking what it was like in Buckingham Palace. Corden said it was “not too shabby,” but that The Late Show studio was nicer.
“There’s less pictures of the Queen in Buckingham Palace than you have of your own face in your studio,” Corden told Colbert.
The two CBS late night hosts then discussed what the equivalent honor would be in the U.S.
“The best you can hope for in America is Obama retweets you,” Colbert said.
