Late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel has teamed up with Caesars Entertainment to open up his own comedy club in the city where he grew up, Las Vegas.
The simply named Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club will open in the spring of 2019 at the LINQ Promenade right on the Vegas strip near the High Roller observation wheel and Brooklyn Bowl. The 8,000-square-foot venue, which seats up to 300 guests, will have shows seven nights a week from both major comics and up-and-coming performers.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Kimmel said that he looks forward to building the comedy club from scratch and not just taking over a space that was formerly some other kind of business. The 50-year-old is going to be very involved with the club and will have a hand in all aspects — from the food and drink menus, to the décor (which will feature Kimmel memorabilia), to the comedians that will be booked to perform at the venue.
