James Corden is due to make his debut as anchor of one of America's top talk shows The Late, Late Show next week. But there are reports that rehearsals haven't gone down well with test audiences because Americans are struggling to understand his British estuary accent, English mannerisms and also don't appreciate his humour. What is it about some British presenters that Americans find hard to digest, and why doesn’t our humour always translate across the Atlantic? Tania Bryer is a British presenter for CNBC and Lewis Schaffer is an American comedian who has been based in the UK for 15 years.
