Jimmy Kimmel Live is coming to Foxtel
Tuesdays to Fridays from September 22 at 6.30pm
First on The Comedy Channel Express from the US
Jimmy Kimmel is host and executive producer of Emmy® nominated Jimmy Kimmel Live. The late night talk show from ABC is known for its massive viral video successes including “Mean Tweets”, “Lie Witness News”, “Jimmy’s Twerk Fail Prank”, “Unnecessary Censorship”, “YouTube Challenge”, and more.
The hugely popular Jimmy Kimmel Live is now in its 13th season. Since 2003 Kimmel’s guests have included President Barack Obama, Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Jennifer Aniston, Will Ferrell, Tom Hanks, Amy Poehler and Matt Damon, as well as many more Hollywood stars, celebrities and entertainers.
The first week of Jimmy Kimmel Live on The Comedy Channel will feature guests Kerry Washington, Don Johnson, Lea Michelle, and LL Cool J among others.
Kimmel himself is a natural born prankster which is reflected in the humour on his show. He loves hoaxes and pranks and pushes them further than most people do, not even drawing the line with his own staff. As a talk show host, Kimmel pushes the envelope and is not afraid to take risks when sending up popular culture, celebrities and A-Listers, and seemingly doesn’t have any boundaries.
Jimmy Kimmel Live will broadcast on The Comedy Channel Tuesdays to Fridays from September 22 at 6.30pm Express from the US and First on Foxtel.
