“So Horne & Corden, a sketch show by Gavin & Stacey stars Mathew Horne and James Corden, was never really going to be my thing. But I wasn't prepared for quite how awful it is [ ...] Horne & Corden isn't just bad, it actually made me feel a bit depressed. Enough said.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“Horne & Corden was about as funny as credit default swaps [ ...] Most of the sketches in last night's show were too long, floundering around for a punchline like a drunk looking for a light switch.”
Benji Wilson, The Daily Telegraph

“They're both talented comic actors, so where there were dips, it was usually the result of material rather than delivery. And, though it would be ridiculously early to write it off, it was worrying that their opener should have been so reliant on material that struck you as a bit end-of-term-revue in character.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent
