Homecoming for Brooklyn-Born Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel Live is making its first East Coast trip. JKL will bring viewers to Kimmel’s birthplace, Brooklyn.

For a week of shows, October 29 through November 2, JKL will originate from BAM–the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The historic venue has been the borough’s cultural flashpoint for more than 150 years.

Overall, this marks Kimmel’s first trip away from his Hollywood studio since 2006 when the show visited Detroit.

Brooklyn week coincedes with the Brooklyn Nets debut at Barclays Center.

JKL will feature citizens and sights of Brooklyn throughout the week, along with special guests, segments, and musical acts.
