Jimmy Kimmel Professional Career

Kimmel began working in radio while still in high school, inspired by David Letterman’s start. He hosted a Sunday night interview show on UNLV’s college radio station, KUNV. He became a popular caller to the KZZP-FM afternoon show hosted by radio personalities Mike Elliott and Kent Voss in Phoenix, Arizona, while attending Arizona State University.

Kimmel and Voss landed their first paid job in 1989 as morning drive co-hosts of The Me and Him Show on KZOK-FM in Seattle, Washington. Over the next ten months, the hosts pulled several stunts on air, including one that resulted in a $8,000 advertising loss.

Kimmel and Voss were fired by KZOK in 1990 and then fired again a year later by WRBQ-FM in Tampa, Florida. Kimmel went on to host his own show at KCMJ in Palm Springs, California, where he hired Carson Daly, a childhood friend of his, as his intern. Kimmel joined KROQ-FM in Los Angeles after a morning stint at KRQQ in Tucson, Arizona. He was “Jimmy The Sports Guy” for the Kevin and Bean morning show for five years. He met and befriended comedian Adam Carolla during this time.

Kimmel, who did not want to work in television at first, began writing for Fox announcers and promotions and was quickly hired to do on-air promotions himself. He turned down several television show offers from producer Michael Davies because he was uninterested in the projects, until he was offered a spot as the comedic counterpart to Ben Stein on the game show Win Ben Stein’s Money, which premiered on Comedy Central in 1997. Stein’s monotonous vocal style and faux-patrician demeanour were offset by his quick wit and “everyman” personality. The pair won an Emmy for Best Game Show Host for their efforts.

Kimmel co-hosted (with Adam Carolla) and co-produced (with Daniel Kellison) Comedy Central’s The Man Show in 1999, during his time on Win Ben Stein’s Money. In 2001, Kimmel left Win Ben Stein’s Money to be replaced by comedian Nancy Pimental, who was later replaced by Kimmel’s cousin Sal Iacono.

The success of The Man Show enabled Kimmel, Carolla, and Kellison to create and produce Crank Yankers for Comedy Central (on which Kimmel plays the characters “Elmer Higgins”, “Terrence Catheter”, “The Nudge”, “Karl Malone” and himself) and later The Andy Milonakis Show for MTV2. Kimmel also produced and co-wrote Windy City Heat, which won the Festival Prize and the Comedia Award for Best Film at the 2004 Montreal Comedy Festival.
