James Corden Addresses London Terrorist Attack... from Scene of the Horrible Crime

by at .

On far too many occasions this year, James Corden has opened The Late Late Show with a few words about a terrorist attack in Great Britain.

He was forced to do so after five people were killed and 40 injured after a heinous car and knife attack outside U.K. Parliament that afternoon.

And then he was forced to do so late last month after 22 people were killed and many more injured in a suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

But Tuesday night was different.

The comedian didn't just address the latest attack on London on Tuesday evening...

... he did so FROM London itself.

Just days after a terrorist attack killed seven people and injured 48 others, Corden and his staff took their talk show to the comedian’s native city for a few days.

Walking the streets of London, Corden addressed the incident and his decision as follows:

"I think about all the times since I took this job that I had to open our show talking about such atrocities. Trying to find the right words to say is impossible because there are none."

Corden then explained that he and his crew members were staying at a hotel just two minutes from where the attacks took place last week, adding that some folks might think it's strange timing to do a variety show from the British capital in the wake of this incident.

"I couldn't disagree more," he said, referencing Britain's upcoming election for a new prime minister.

He also pointed out the Houses of Parliament during his walking monologue, saying that is "represents democracy, something that the people who carried out this attack hate."

Therefore, in conclusion...

"We're going to bring you the silliest, stupidest, most fun-packed shows we've ever made for you to celebrate London, and Britain, and everything it has to offer.

And you know what?

"The people who carried out that attack, they would hate that too. I'm so proud to be broadcasting here from my hometown. I'm proud to show off its beauty, its diversity and its stoic British determination to let nothing or anybody stand in our way.

"This is not a country that feels afraid."

So well said.

We could not admire London residents any more for the way they're responded to this attack.
