Wiki

James Christian "Jimmy" Kimmel (born November 13, 1967) is an American television host and comedian. He is the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a late-night talk show that airs on ABC. Prior to that, Kimmel was best known as the co-host of Comedy Central's The Man Show and Win Ben Stein's Money. Kimmel is also a television producer, having produced shows such as Crank Yankers, Sports Show with Norm Macdonald, and The Andy Milonakis Show.

Kimmel was born in the Mill Basin neighborhood of the New York City borough of Brooklyn, the eldest of three children of Joan (née Iacono), a homemaker, and James Kimmel, an IBM executive. He was raised Roman Catholic and served as an altar boy. Kimmel is of German and Irish descent on his father’s side and Italian descent on his mother’s side. His real life uncle, Frank Potenza, would later appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! as a regular from 2003 to 2011.

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 before attending Arizona State University for two years without completing a degree.
