The ‘Star Trek’ actor got well into the swing of things, kicking things off with a suitably dramatic speech, telling the audience: “The art of illusion is the combination of all planetary mysteries, in service of revelation.
“We stand here as mere conduits, revealing the ever-present wonderment that streams through the very fibres of our galaxy.”
James and Sir Patrick warm up the crowd
...Which we’re sure is exactly how Paul Daniels would have put it too.
Over the course of the routine, the duo even pulled an audience member up on stage to be “sawed in half”... which was almost as awe-inspiring as the sparkly jackets they threw on specially for the occasion.
We’re just pleased to see that James and Sir Patrick were able to share the stage without any awkward moments, given their bizarre on-stage spat at the 2010 Glamour Awards.
Taking to the stage, Sir Patrick criticised James - who was hosting the event - for standing with his hands in his pockets, and remarked: “From where I was sitting I could see your belly.”
This isn’t the first time that James has got the audience involved on ‘The Late, Late Show’, having previously left one fan red-faced during an embarrassing game of ‘Guess Who?’, with special guest Sharon Osbourne.
