About Jimmy Kimmel

Back in pre-2016 election America, Jimmy Kimmel was content to use his late-night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, to induce laughs with quick wit and classic bits, like celebrities reading “Mean Tweets.” But after his newborn son underwent open-heart surgery in 2017, Jimmy’s emotional tale and plea to protect health care coverage for pre-existing conditions moved his TV audience and struck a chord with his 10M+ followers on Twitter and YouTube. Soon after, Jimmy would prove to be an equally powerful advocate for gun control, gaining social media attention for his tearful monologue on the shooting in his hometown of Las Vegas. While he may rather make Guillermo say the darndest things, his firsthand experience with hot-button issues has resonated with a quickly-growing fanbase.
