Funnyman James Corden has praised a lookalike who fooled nightclub bosses into giving him celebrity treatment by pretending to be the British comedian. Computer worker Wes Howson was ushered into the VIP area of the Birdcage club in Manchester, England and received free drinks during a night out. He was also mobbed by a host of girls who believed him to be the Gavin & Stacey star. Howson tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "My mate texted someone at the club for a joke, saying he was bringing James. People were shaking my hand and one girl told me I was her idol. They were tweeting and posting pictures. It was hilarious." The prank clearly amused Corden - he posted a link to the story on his Twitter.com alongside the message, "Love this guy... classic!"
