Kids interview Emmy-nominated comedians James Corden, Leslie Jones, and more

Posted on

As nominees for the 2017 Emmy Awards, Leslie Jones, James Corden, Billy Eichner, Samantha Bee, Sarah Silverman and Vanessa Bayer have had their fair share of interviews — but they’ve never been asked questions like this before!

PEOPLE sat down with the comedians ahead of Sunday’s big show, armed with a series of questions from kids ages 5 to 10.

Will, 6, kicked things off by asking a hard-hitting question: “How’s life?”

“At 6 years old, you want to know how’s life?” joked Jones, a first-time nominee for best supporting actress on Saturday Night Live. “It is great. It is absolutely wonderful. I’m living my best life. I’m 50, and I don’t look it.”

Corden, who won two trophies at Saturday’s Creative Arts awards and has two kids — son Max, 6, and daughter Carey, 2 — at home told Will that “life is good,” especially because his wife Julia Carey is expecting their third baby.

“I have another child that’s growing in my wife’s tummy right now,” the Late Late Show host said. “So if life’s not good now, how is it ever going to get better than this?”

Next up was 8-year-old Maddie, who wanted to know about the most embarrassing moment the stars had on stage.

Billy on the Street creator and star Billy Eichner went way back for his answer.

“At my Bar Mitzvah, I sang [the song] ‘Lean On Me’ in it’s entirety,” the 38-year-old two-time Emmy nominee said. “Which … in hindsight, was maybe unnecessary.”

The stars also tried their best to challenge 5-year-old Amira with the best “funny face.”




And Inoa, 6, got Bee — also an Emmy winner at Saturday’s Creative Arts awards — to reflect on life as a mother.

“The scariest thing I’ve ever done was have children,” said Bee, who has three kids. “I was terrified. But look how nicely they turn out! I mean, these aren’t mine. I had different ones. Totally worth it, but I was terrified. You’re much too young to have children.”
