James Corden‘s father is officially not impressed.

The 2016 Tony Awards host sweetly introduced his “mum and dad” during the telecast Sunday night – and his father seemed less than thrilled with the time it was taking to honor Broadway’s best.

“It’s great, mate, but it’s going on a bit, isn’t it,” he said as Corden burst into a fit of giggles.

“I mean, I’m only here for the party,” his father continued. “Let’s get on with it!”

Corden’s father must have felt a little guilty about the jabs, however, because he quickly added, “Great opening, by the way.”

“Oh come on, Dad. Shut up!” Corden replied with a smile.

But his father proved he’s no Broadway rube when his son asked him whether there was anything he was interested to see.

“Well, there’s a lot about Hamilton … ” he said, as Corden nodded in agreement.
