Jimmy Kimmel is a producer, writer, and comedian most known for his late-night show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and his ongoing friendly feud with Matt Damon. Before Kimmel enjoyed his TV success, he sharpened his comedy skills hosting a number of radio shows across the country, which is where he met fellow comedian and radio host Adam Carolla. The two then went on to create their own comedy show “The Man Show”, which simultaneously celebrated and satirized the stereotypical vulgar male perspective in a sexually charged and funny way. The show featured a variety of pre-recorded sketches and in-studio audience participation. Then in 2003, Kimmel made the move from cable to network television with his own late-night show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
In addition to hosting his own talk show, Jimmy Kimmel has hosted the Emmy Awards and Academy Awards. Before hosting the Oscars in 2016, Kimmel wanted to shake things up by getting everyone high, “You know, marijuana will be legal for recreational use in February. I wonder if, maybe you can pass some of that out on the red carpet before the show and then we just see what happens. My goal is to somehow get arrested during the hosting of the show.” Thankfully, he did not get high or arrested, but that hasn’t stopped him from partaking. During an interview with Rolling Stone magazine on a Sunday night at his beach house, all he wanted to do was smoke, and that’s exactly what he did. At one point, he gets up during the interview and returns with a baggie of marijuana that he proceeds to pack into his one-hitter, “If we smoke weed right now, is that on the record?"
