Corden remarked that it he never thought he’d be at home speaking to his audience on the five year mark. Still, he thanked his viewers for “the journey that it’s been”, hoping that the show is able to “bring [the audience] some light in the dark”.
Trevor Noah and Jimmy Fallon collaborated to talk about what it’s like to host from home without the familiarity of an audience with them. Noah, in particular, said that it was “madness” to tell “jokes to [himself]”, but continued on with the importance of staying indoors and health with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also encouraged others to donate to nokidhungry.org to help kids out who get food from their schools.
