Joel McHale shares bromance with Uber driver on desperate six-hour trip


Ted star Joel McHale made a huge fan of one lucky Uber driver after asking him to get him to a New York chat show on time after a flight was delayed.

The funnyman called Chris Costello out of the blue when bad weather grounded his place and hired him to make the six-hour journey from Rochester airport to Manhattan for an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (17Apr18).

“He was the best Uber driver I’ve ever had,” Joel told the host. “I rode in the front seat and we talked. Oh, we’re friends.”

And Costello was thrilled to hang out with his passenger, sharing a photo of the two new pals on Instagram and adding the caption: “God graced me with the unique opportunity to meet Joel McHale yesterday as I was blessed to be his Uber driver on a hilarious six hour trip.

“He’s one of the most humble, hilarious and generous people I have had the pleasure of meeting.”
