Brooklyn, New York City — In January, Jimmy Kimmel will complete 20 years as the host of his own late-night TV talk show. Jimmy Kimmel Live!” is now the longest-running late-night show. And he’s just signed a new contract extension with ABC for 3 more years. “I looked around his office, and I thought, ‘I don’t want to clean this stuff up.’ He said that he did not expect his show to last for two decades.
The location is just a few miles from the Mill Basin neighborhood
Kimmel was born in Brooklyn and lived there until the age of 9. And this week, he came home from the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) to host a weeklong show. Where thousands of people will come to welcome this original son. The home of his show could be in Hollywood. But Kimmel lives close to friends and family in New York City, and the location is only a few miles from the Mill Basin neighborhood where he grew up. “At times it felt like the plane was heading towards the earth, and somehow we got it out.
COVID didn’t cancel it for a few years
His visit home had become an annual tradition until COVID canceled it for a few years. It’s always great to be back in Brooklyn, but this one in particular feels great. Because we’re stuck, “It looks like the world is going back to normal. Even though everyone on my staff still has a mask on.” To promote his lineup of guests this week, the star used the Okey Way. Recruited a TikTok-famous bodega manager from Red Hook to explain who will be on the show.

“First we start with Jimmy Kimmel,” said Raheem “General OK” Mohamed. “Then we add the guests. We put David Letterman on the show. Then, we add Amy Schumer, then Ben Stiller, Mila Kunis, Jason Bateman, and Tracy Morgan. And we associate it with music. Those musical acts include Run the Jewels and Paul Simon. It’s been decades since Kimmel’s family moved from Brooklyn to Las Vegas. But the star’s ties to the old neighborhood are strong. But I knew I was going to give it my all. Which I had, and I think it’s important to always do.
He told his audience in 2012
And that’s one reason he first came back a decade ago during Superstorm Sandy. Tonight, I return to save my people from the storm. He told his audience in 2012, and they responded with cheers. This time, we caught up with Kimmel in between rehearsals at BAM, just days after ABC announced the extension of his contract. ABC came to me and they said, ‘We want you to stay. We want you to stay as long as you want,'” he said.
