America’s favorite late-night host, comedian, writer, and producer, James Christian Kimmel, was born on November 13, 1967.
Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which he hosts and produces, debuted on ABC on January 26, 2003, at the Hollywood Masonic Temple in Hollywood, California, and will move to the Zappos Theater on the Las Vegas Strip on April 1, 2019.
Kimmel hosted the Academy Awards in 2017 and 2018, as well as the Primetime Emmys in 2012, 2016, and 2020.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! host Kimmel has shared hosting duties on the Comedy Central shows The Man Show and Win Ben Stein’s Money.
The Sports Show with Norm Macdonald and The Andy Milonakis Show are just a few of Kimmel’s other productions. He was recognized as one of “Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2018.
Since Conan O’Brien’s retirement, Jimmy Kimmel has hosted a late-night talk show for longer than any other American host.
Jimmy Kimmel’s birthday is November 13th, thus he will soon be turning 50. James Christian “Jimmy” Kimmel was born in Brooklyn, New York.
Kimmel was the oldest of three children and a native of Mill Basin until his family relocated to Las Vegas when he was nine years old.
Following graduation from Ed W. Clark High School, he received an honorary degree from UNLV and went on to complete his undergraduate studies with a year at Arizona State University and two years at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Jimmy Kimmel’s Controversy
Quinta Brunson, who took home an Emmy on Monday night, laughed off Jimmy Kimmel’s antics.
The host of the late show shared the stage with Will Arnett at the 74th Emmys. The “Bojack Horseman” star dragged Kimmel’s lifeless body across the stage as part of their presentation.
The act’s central premise was a mock lament for Kimmel’s failure to win the prize for best variety talk program earlier in the evening. Arnett joked to the audience that Kimmel had overindulged at the ceremony’s bar.
Kimmel’s decision to remain on the floor onstage while Brunson took the gold statuette was widely condemned by viewers on social media.
The star and creator of “Abbott Elementary” came out in support of Kimmel behind the scenes, assuring the press that she didn’t mind the joke at all.
“I’m familiar with Jimmy Kimmel, and to be honest, the bit didn’t disturb me all that much. When it comes to the opinions of the world wide web, I have no idea.
That guy, I’ve met him before. She told the journalists backstage, “Jimmy gave me my first major late-night slot and was one of the first people to view ‘Abbott.'”
He told me via Instagram that he had just watched “one of the greatest comedies of all time” and was overjoyed to learn that it will soon be on ABC.
In that instant, I believe I felt nothing except relief that it was Jimmy up there. Somewhat in the same vein as the other comedic godfathers, in my opinion, is George Carlin. Perhaps I’ll have a problem with him tomorrow. On Wednesday, I’ll be appearing on his show, and I might hit him in the face. “I don’t know what happens,” Brunson said jokingly.
Brunson won her first Emmy for best writing for a comedy series on Monday night. She joins Larry Wilmore “The Bernie Mac Show” and Lena Waithe “Master of None” as the third Black person and second Black woman to win for writing on a comedy series.
Because of David Letterman’s early success in radio, Kimmel got his own start in the industry while still in high school. He maintained his radio career in college, eventually landing his first professional gig as a co-host on the morning show The Me and Him Show on Seattle’s KZOK-FM.
In 1990, he and his co-host Kent Voss were let go mostly because of the high production costs associated with their frequent on-air stunts.
Kimmel moved to Palm Springs, California to launch his own talk show and hired Carson Daly, a boyhood buddy, to work as an intern. Jimmy spent five years on the Kevin and Bean morning program as “Jimmy the Sports Guy” at KROQ-FM in Los Angeles.
Frank Potenza, Kimmel’s uncle, and Sal Iacono, his cousin, are regulars on Jimmy Kimmel Live. From 1988 through 2002, Kimmel was married to Gina Maddy. They’re the proud parents of Kevin and Katherine. From 2002 through 2009, he dated Sarah Silverman.
He tied the knot with Molly McNearney in July 2013; they now have two children, Jane and William John. Their newborn boy was diagnosed with a serious heart abnormality and underwent successful surgery three days after birth. When Kimmel returned to his show, he told viewers about his horrific ordeal.
Kimmel is an active member of the Catholic church and an avid Democrat voter. His narcolepsy is a topic of public discussion, as he has addressed it at length.
