Las Vegas native opens a comedy club on The Strip.
Jimmy Kimmel’s name is now lighting up The Strip on a continual basis, having opened Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club on The LINQ Promenade in May.
The 8,000-square-foot, 300-seat venue, which is loosely designed like Kimmel’s actual home in Los Angeles, features a mix of up-and-coming comics and more established names like Adam Carolla and Harland Williams, who headlined the club’s opening dates. Modern-day “roast master” Jeff Ross is also a club consultant.
“I think any great club has a mixture of people who are getting started and people who are at the top of their game,” Kimmel said, adding that he wants comics to feel welcome to “tune-up” their acts there before heading out to bigger performance venues. He’s also not opposed to comics doing “late night pop- in” shows at the club.
“My job is to make sure that these comics know that that they will be welcome there and that it’s a great place to do comedy,” he said.
