Jimmy Kimmel is America's longest-running late-night talk show host, serving as host and executive producer of the Emmy® Award-winning "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Now in its 20th season, the show produces some of the most popular comedy bits and features a diverse lineup of guests including actors, musicians, athletes, comedians, authors, politicians and newsmakers. "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" airs weeknights at 11:35|10:35c, broadcasting from Disney's El Capitan Entertainment Center in Hollywood.
In 2009, Kimmel was the first late-night host to create a channel on YouTube for his show's content. Since then, the Jimmy Kimmel Live YouTube Channel has garnered over 14 billion views.
Kimmel is also the host and executive producer of ABC's multiple Emmy® Award-winning "Live in Front of a Studio Audience" specials with Norman Lear, star-studded reenactments of the iconic sitcoms "All in the Family," "The Jeffersons," "Good Times," "The Facts of Life" and "Diff'rent Strokes." Kimmel is also host and executive producer of ABC's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."
In 2019, Kimmel wrote and illustrated a children's book titled "The Serious Goose." Published by Random House Children's Books, "The Serious Goose" spent several weeks atop the New York Times bestseller list. All the profits were donated to Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and children's hospitals across the United States.
Outside of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," Kimmel hosted "The Oscars®" two years in a row, for which he received widespread critical acclaim. The move marked the first time the Academy Awards® telecast had the same host in consecutive years since the 1990s. Previously, Kimmel hosted the American Music Awards five times, co-hosted the ESPY Awards with LeBron James, hosted the 2012 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner with President Obama, and hosted the Primetime Emmy® Awards three times.
Kimmel also voiced characters in "Paw Patrol the Movie," the Oscar-nominated film "The Boss Baby" and "The Boss Baby: Family Business."
After 12 years in local morning radio with stops in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Seattle, Tampa, Palm Springs, Tucson and Los Angeles, Kimmel got his start in television as co-host of "Win Ben Stein's Money" on Comedy Central, for which he won an Emmy for Best Game Show Host in 1999. He co-hosted, co-created and executive produced 100 episodes of "The Man Show" for Comedy Central, served as on-air prognosticator for Fox NFL Sunday for four seasons, and co-created and executive produced "The Andy Milonakis Show" for MTV and MTV2.
Along with his company Kimmelot, Kimmel is the co-creator, executive producer and co-star of "Crank Yankers," now in its seventh season on Comedy Central; executive producer of the game show "Generation Gap" on ABC; executive producer of "Mark Rober's Revengineers" on Discovery; and executive producer of "Once Upon a Time in Queens," a four-part 30 for 30 documentary about the world champion 1986 New York Mets for ESPN.
