EARLY LIFE AND FAMILY

Kimmel was born in Brooklyn
Brooklyn
, New York, and grew up in the neighborhood of Mill Basin as the eldest of three children of Joan (née Iacono), a homemaker, and James John Kimmel, an IBM
IBM
executive.

He is, and was raised, Catholic, and as a child served as an altar server . Kimmel's mother is of Italian ancestry while two of his paternal great-great-grandparents were German emigrants, and his family's surname was "Kümmel" several generations back.

The family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, when he was nine years old. He graduated from Ed W. Clark High School , and then attended University of Nevada, Las Vegas (for one year) and Arizona State University (for two years). He received an honorary degree from UNLV in 2013.

Kimmel's uncle, Frank Potenza ("Uncle Frank"), appeared on _Jimmy Kimmel Live!_ as a regular from 2003 until his death in 2011. His cousin, Sal Iacono , performed Kimmel's former co-hosting duties during the last season of _Win Ben Stein's Money_ and then became a writer and sketch performer on _ Jimmy Kimmel

CAREER

RADIO CAREER

Kimmel began working in the radio industry while in high school, hosting a Sunday night interview show on UNLV 's college station, KUNV . While attending Arizona State University , he became a popular caller to the KZZP-FM afternoon show hosted by radio personalities Mike Elliott and Kent Voss in Phoenix, Arizona
Phoenix, Arizona
. In 1989, Kimmel landed his first paying job alongside Voss as morning drive co-host of _The Me and Him Show_ at KZOK-FM in Seattle, Washington.

Ten months later, Kimmel and Voss were fired by KZOK and were fired again a year later at WRBQ-FM in Tampa, Florida . Kimmel went on to host his own show at KCMJ in Palm Springs, California , where he persuaded a young Carson Daly to drop out of college and become his intern. After a morning stint at KRQQ in Tucson, Arizona
Tucson, Arizona
, Kimmel landed at KROQ-FM in Los Angeles. He spent five years as "Jimmy The Sports Guy" for the Kevin and Bean morning show. During this time he met and befriended a struggling comedian named Adam Carolla .

COMEDY CENTRAL

Kimmel began his television career as the comedic counterpart to Ben Stein on the game show _Win Ben Stein\'s Money _, which began airing on Comedy Central in 1997. His quick wit and "everyman " personality were counterpoints to Stein's monotonous vocal style and faux-patrician demeanor. The combination earned the pair an Emmy
Emmy
award for Best Game Show Host.

In 1999, during his time with _Win Ben Stein's Money_, Kimmel co-hosted (with Carolla) and co-produced (with Daniel Kellison ), Comedy Central's _ The Man Show _. Kimmel left _Win Ben Stein's Money_ in 2001 and was replaced by comedian Nancy Pimental , who was eventually replaced by Kimmel's cousin Sal Iacono . _ The Man Show '_s success allowed Kimmel, Carolla, and Kellison to create and produce, under the banner Jackhole Productions , _ Crank Yankers _ for Comedy Central (on which Kimmel plays the characters "Elmer Higgins", "Terrence Catheter", "The Nudge", " Karl Malone " and himself) and later _ The Andy Milonakis Show _ for MTV2. Kimmel also produced and co-wrote the feature film _ Windy City Heat _, Festival Prize winner of the Comedia Award for Best Film at the 2004 Montreal Comedy Festival .

_JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!_

Main article: Jimmy Kimmel Live! Kimmel in September 2012

In January 2003, Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel
permanently left _The Man Show_ to host his own late-night talk show, _ Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel
Live!_, on ABC . _Jimmy Kimmel Live_ was briefly also broadcast on Irish digital TV channel 3e. In the April 2007 issue of Stuffmagazine.com, Kimmel was named the "biggest badass on TV". Kimmel said it was an honor but clearly a mistake.

Despite its name, the show hasn't actually aired live since 2004, when censors were unable to properly bleep censor a barrage of swearing from actor Thomas Jane .

During an incident during the 2004 NBA Finals in Detroit, Kimmel appeared on ABC's halftime show to make an on-air plug for his show. He suggested that if the Detroit Pistons
Detroit Pistons
defeated the Los Angeles Lakers , "they're gonna burn the city of Detroit down … and it's not worth it." Officials with Detroit's ABC affiliate, WXYZ-TV , immediately announced that that night's show would not air on the station. Hours later, ABC officials pulled that night's show from the entire network. Kimmel later apologized.

Kimmel usually ends his show with "My apologies to Matt Damon , we ran out of time." When Matt Damon did actually appear on the show to be interviewed, he walked in and sat down only to be told just a few seconds later by Kimmel, "Unfortunately, we are totally out of time," followed by "my apologies to Matt Damon." Damon seemed to become angry. In the December 17, 2006, issue of _USA Weekend_, Kimmel himself acknowledged that the Damon incident was a joke.

In February 2008, Kimmel showed a mock music video with a panoply of stars called "I\'m Fucking Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck
", as "revenge" after his then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman and Damon recorded a similar video titled, "I\'m Fucking Matt Damon ". Silverman's video originally aired on _ Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel
Live!_ and became an "instant YouTube
YouTube
sensation." Kimmel's "revenge" video featured himself, Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck
, and a large lineup of stars, particularly in scenes spoofing the 1985 "We Are the World " video: Brad Pitt , Don Cheadle , Cameron Diaz , Robin Williams , Harrison Ford
Harrison Ford
, Dominic Monaghan

, Benji Madden and Joel Madden from Good Charlotte , Lance Bass , Macy Gray , Josh Groban , Huey Lewis , Perry Farrell , Christopher Mintz-Plasse , Pete Wentz , Meat Loaf

, Rebecca Romijn , Christina Applegate , Dom Joly , Mike Shinoda , Lauren Conrad , and Joan Jett , among others.

After this, Jimmy's sidekick, Guillermo, appeared in a spoof of _The Bourne Ultimatum _, which starred Damon. He was then chased down by Damon, who was cursing about Kimmel being behind all this. Guillermo also stopped Damon on the red carpet one time and before he could finish the interview he said, "Sorry, we are out of time." The most recent encounter was titled "The Handsome Men's Club" which featured Kimmel, along with the "Handsome Men", who were: Matthew McConaughey

, Rob Lowe , Lenny Kravitz , Patrick Dempsey

, Sting , Keith Urban , John Krasinski , Ethan Hawke

, Josh Hartnett , Tony Romo

, Ted Danson , Taye Diggs , Gilles Marini , and Ben Affleck

, speaking about being handsome and all the jobs that come with it. At the end of the skit Kimmel has a door slammed in his face by none other than Matt Damon , stating that they had run out of time and then Damon continues with a sinister laugh. Jennifer Garner also makes a surprise appearance. As a tradition, celebrities voted off _Dancing with the Stars _ appear on _ Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel
Live!_, causing Kimmel to describe himself as "the three-headed dog the stars must pass on their way to No-Dancing Hell".

In October 2013, a new segment of the show, "Kids Table", showcased five- and six-year-olds discussing the U.S. government shutdown and U.S. debts. When one of the children suggested "killing all the people in China", as a way of resolving the U.S. debt, Kimmel responded that that was "an interesting idea" and soon jokingly asked a follow up: “Should we allow the Chinese to live?”. The incident triggered discussions and protests on Internet, even from Mainland China
Mainland China
. In an October 25 letter to a group called the 80-20 Initiative , which identifies itself as a pan-Asian-American political organization, ABC apologized for the segment, saying "We would never purposefully broadcast anything to upset the Chinese community, Asian community, anyone of Chinese descent or any community at large."

More than 100 people took to the streets in San Francisco on October 28 to protest the show and demand "a more elaborate apology" and that Kimmel to be fired. On that day's broadcast, Kimmel addressed the controversy personally, saying: "I thought it was obvious that I didn't agree with that statement, but apparently it wasn't … So I just wanted to say, I'm sorry, I apologize.” Despite the apologies from ABC and Kimmel, protests continued. A White House petition was created to investigate this incident and reached the 100,000 signatures needed to require a response from the White House. The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus denounced the incident and demanded a formal apology from ABC.

Jay Leno
on _The Jay Leno
Jay Leno
Show '_s "10 at 10" segment. Kimmel derided Leno in front of a live studio audience for taking back the 11:35 pm time slot from Conan O\'Brien , and repeatedly insulted Leno.

INFLUENCES

David Letterman
David Letterman
was Kimmel's biggest inspiration for getting into comedy.

Kimmel's biggest influences in comedy are David Letterman
David Letterman
and Howard Stern . Kimmel has described Letterman's work as, "His show was just so weird and different, I'd never seen anything like it. I didn't know anyone who had a sense of humor like that." Kimmel has often joked that the only reason he got into show business was just so he can be friends with Letterman, he has also questioned why anybody would watch his show instead of Letterman's. Kimmel wrote a piece for _Time _ writing his love for Letterman by saying, "As I write this, there are only 10 shows left before the funniest, most inventive and smartest man who ever wore an Alka Seltzer suit goes fishing for good. None of us who discovered Dave on our own and claimed him as our own will ever be able to satisfactorily explain to the younger people who didn’t what he did, what he meant and what he means. I guess it doesn’t matter. It’s only an exhibition, not a competition. Thanks Dave. For whatever it’s worth, you’re my favorite."

PERSONAL LIFE

Kimmel married Gina Maddy in 1988; the couple divorced in 2002. They had a daughter, Katherine (born 1991), and a son, Kevin (born 1993). He had a relationship with comedian Sarah Silverman from 2002 until they broke up in March 2009.

Their second child, a son named William ("Billy") John, was born on April 21, 2017. The infant was born with a rare congenital heart defect, tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with pulmonary atresia, which was first detected by a nurse who noticed his purplish appearance when he was three hours old. He underwent successful surgery at three days old. The first guests Kimmel had when his show returned following his son's birth were cardiac surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz , who explained the condition, and snowboarder Shaun White
Shaun White
, who was born with TOF.
