Jimmy Kimmel is back in Brooklyn! Guests, how to get tickets
Jimmy Kimmel is leaving California and coming to Brooklyn for a week of shows, featuring guests including Cardi B. Here's how to get tickets.
Jimmy Kimmel is taking his late-night talk show on the road again, ditching California for Brooklyn for a week of shows at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Oct. 15-19.
Jimmy Kimmel Live, which airs on ABC, will tape five shows before a live audience inside the Howard Gilman Opera House, which will be the fourth time the show is taping at BAM.
Here are the confirmed guests and musical performers for Jimmy Kimmel Live in Brooklyn:
Monday, Oct. 15: Adam Sandler
Tuesday, Oct. 16: John Krasicki, St. Vincent
Wednesday, Oct. 17: n/a
Thursday, Oct. 18: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Friday, Oct. 19: Mike Birbiglia, Paul Shaffer
Other announced guests include Cardi B and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, while the Wu Tang Clan and Bebe Rexha have also been announced as musical performers. The dates of their appearances on the show have not been confirmed.
Tickets are totally free — the only rule is you must be 18 or older to attend the taping. Each person can apply for up to two tickets. The only catch for most people is the tapings start at 4:30 p.m. on Monday and 3:30 p.m. the rest of the week.
Ticket distribution is being done through 1iota, which handles tickets to many other talk shows taped before a live audience.
When you go to register for a ticket, you’ll be added to a waitlist. This doesn’t mean tickets are sold out — productions don’t always finalize the number of seats available at each taping until closer to the event. But getting on the waitlist early gives you a better chance at tickets once the seating is finalized.
Notifications will go out in batches via email once your ticket request is approved, and they’ll be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
