Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor Television host Jimmy Kimmel with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on January 25, at 11:30 a.m. at 6840 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the El Capitan Entertainment Centre where his show resides. “We are proud to include Jimmy Kimmel on our Walk of Fame. I know that the Boulevard will be filled with laughter on his special day with all the shenanigans that may be going on in connection with his star ceremony,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies. “Jimmy always makes us laugh, and he has done so much for the Hollywood community. He was bound to end up on Hollywood Boulevard!”
As host and executive producer of the Emmy nominated late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for the ABC Television Network, Jimmy Kimmel is a busy man. Like most talk shows, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” features celebrity guests, comedy bits and live music. Unlike most talk shows, it also features Jimmy’s family – including his cousin Sal, his parents and Aunt Chippy. His childhood best friend, Cleto Escobedo, serves as bandleader, alongside his dad, Cleto Escobedo, Sr., on saxophone. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m.
In 2012, Kimmel hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards and was the headliner of the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. He has also hosted the American Music Awards on ABC five times as well as the ESPY Awards in July 2007. He co-created and executive-produced the hit MTV2 series’ “The Andy Milonakis Show” and “Crank Yankers.” In addition, Kimmel co-hosted Comedy Central’s “The Man Show,” served for four seasons as on-air prognosticator for “Fox NFL Sunday,” and co-hosted Comedy Central’s long-running and popular game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” for which he received two Emmy nominations and one win for Best Game Show Host in 1999.
