Comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel will broadcast his show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" from the between Oct. 29 and Nov. 2—fitting, since the host was born in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Mill Basin.
The five-day run will feature the new Brooklyn Nets, as well as the Barclays Center, in addition to celebrity guests and music acts. No guests have been formally announced yet.
"It’ll be great to have Jimmy back in his native Brooklyn," Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark said, in a statement. "It will be an exciting week for the show and for the Brooklyn Nets."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the last time Kimmel took his show on the road—to the 2006 Super Bowl XL in Detroit—they received some of their highest ratings.
