The woman dubbed by the internet as 'Chewbacca mom' starred in a late night comedy sketch that's continuing to shine her online spotlight.

Candace Payne of Texas recently broke records with a Facebook live video of her hilariously laughing at herself in an electronic Star Wars Chewbacca mask.

Since the video, and her infectious laugh, went viral, Payne has been making the rounds on various television shows.

Monday night, she appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Corden teased to showing more of Payne's video, during which the audience saw the familiar mother sitting behind the wheel of her car, mask yelling Chewbacca's famous roars.

However, a different zoomed out camera shot revealed Corden sitting in the passenger seat, anxious to get to work.

The video later revealed Star Wars director J.J. Abrams in the back seat. He proceeded to offer some direction to Payne, which she gladly and hilariously accepted.

The surprises weren't finished.

Peter Mayhew, the actor who made Chewbacca famous, promised Payne a surprise. Watch her reaction here.
