What did draw attention was that at the end of his presentation, the host of the program, James Corden, approached the Chilean comedian and said a few words in his ear. Copano himself in an interview in the newspaper Chilean La Tercera recounted what he told him. “He told me that (the show) had been very good, he loved the Avengers joke, that it was great and he told me I hope you can come before the end of the season,” he revealed.
Along these lines, he added that “I don't know if he says it out of courtesy to everyone or it was special, but that's what he told me. Now I have my head in putting together the routine for Viña well. That is what is coming now. I'm traveling to Chile tonight, “she said.
The routine was recorded on the same day, Thursday 19, in the afternoon, that is, before it was broadcast on CBS in prime time. To do this, Copano flew from New York to Los Angeles, California, to the studios where the program is recorded for the CBS signal.
“Corden stopped by to greet the dressing room. We talked for a while, I told him about all the expectation that there was in Chile, about the Carpool Karaoke that everyone sees and copies. Then about also being from another country and going to the USA to do comedy, in his case he is British”, added Copano.
For the comedian, the participation in the Late is a crucial moment for his career. “It is one step, of several that remain. But it's one that was on my priority list this year, so getting it out that quickly is a relief. Also an honor, that my work has the support of this type of shows.
