  1. Smithy has come along way now especially in the USA!! Great guy but even when I see him in carpool karaoke I still wish he would stay as smithy and offer all the huge major stars smithys advice another great British legend and icon

  2. Smithy really knows how to tell it like it is! This guy’s speech is true inspirational power!
    “YES WE CAN!”

  3. Sure we get this (being Dutch) fabulous, great those ‘sport legends’ worked along even when the message had a great truth in it ! Yes, unfortunately nowadays the looks and all the commercial, social and financial business seems to become more important to the athletes as the sport and delivering itself !

  4. The BBC tell lies and employ pedos. More than a million stoped paying their BBC licence when Tommy done his documentary.

  5. I love this bloke. I love the seriousness of the sporting legends he pays out. They know it's a joke. Everyone one of them know it's an honour to be sledged by Smithy. James this was a masterclass.

  6. This is British comedy at its best .  Hes done really well for himself and all his shows are successful in Britain and US.

  7. As a non-brit. What is this exactly? I get that it is a charity thingy, but is the WHOLE thing a spot? Or was it just James doing a bit in an event? If so, what even IS the event? someone help

  8. Has a go at them for selling out with commercials, sponsorships and TV shows, but recommends Amir Khan to get a catch phrase to get on strictly!

  9. I'd never heard of this guy until youtube runs of the late late show. Today I've watched the entire 3 series of Gavin and Stacey, then this. Brilliant.

  10. And… Our Smithy is returning with a 'Gavin and Stacey' Christmas 2019 special…YAY! I can't wait to watch it.

  11. "you've lost your way, it's all muddled up, you've forgot who you are".
