Jimmy Kimmel Net Worth

Jimmy Kimmel is an American television host and comedian who has a net worth of $50 million. Jimmy Kimmel is probably most famous for hosting the late night comedy talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, for which he earns an annual salary of $15 million. He has hosted the show since 2003. Previously he co-hosted “The Man Show” and was a sidekick on “Win Ben Stein’s Money”. He got his start in show business on radio.

Kimmel, inspired by David Letterman’s start in radio, began working at a radio station while he was still in high school. He continued on during college and landed his first paying radio job as a morning co-host on The Me and Him Show on KZOK-FM in Seattle. He and his co-host, Kent Voss, were fired in 1990, mainly due to costly stunts the two would perform on air. Kimmel decided to start his own show in Palm Springs, California and he recruited childhood friend Carson Daly as his intern. Jimmy eventually ended up at KROQ-FM in Los Angeles and spent five years working as “Jimmy the Sports Guy” on the Kevin and Bean morning show.

Initially, Kimmel had no interest in working in TV. He began writing promotional material for Fox announcers and was recruited to do the on-air promotions himself. Kimmel was then offered a place on Comedy Central’s Win Ben Stein’s Money in 1997 as the “funny everyman” comedic counterpart to Ben Stein. The duo won an Emmy award for Best Game Show Host.

In 1999, while still working on Win Ben Stein’s money, Kimmel co-hosted with Adam Carolla and co-produced The Man Show. The success of the show allowed Kimmel and Carolla to create the show Crank Yankers for Comedy Central, with Kimmel also voicing several characters on the show himself.

Jimmy permanently left The Man Show in 2003 and began hosting his own show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, which slowly became very popular and successful. Despite its name, the show does not actually air live. Jimmy is known for his quirky, “weird” persona and interviewing style. Like most talk show hosts, he has had his fair share of controversies and feuds. He cites his biggest influences for hosting as David Letterman and Howard Stern.

Jimmy has also served as a guest host for “Larry King Live” and “Live with Regis and Kelly”. For the latter, he commuted every day between New York and Los Angeles 5 days in a row, breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest distance traveled in one work week. He has also become a popular host for award shows, hosting the Academy Awards in 2017 and the Primetime Emmy Awards in both 2012 and 2016. He hosted the American Music Awards five years in a row. Kimmel was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013 at 6840 Hollywood Blvd.

Jimmy served as the roastmaster for the New York Friars’ Club Roast of Hugh Hefner. He has also hosted various Comedy Central roasts. Kimmel appeared on a season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. In 2007, Jimmy Kimmel hosted a game show for ABC, Set for Life. Kimmel managed the National League in the 2007 Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game in San Francisco. He played in the game in 2004 and 2006. Jimmy hosted the 2007 ESPY Awards with Lebron James. Kimmel does voicework for many animated films such as Robot Chicken, often voicing dogs. He released a children’s book, The Serious Goose, in July 2019

Colin Jost Net Worth

Colin Jost is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and writer who has a net worth of $8 million. He is best known for hosting the Weekend Update segment with Michael Che on “Saturday Night Live.”

As a cast member and writer of Saturday Night Live, he receives a salary of $25,000 for every episode. Considering he appears in 21 episodes throughout the year, he earns $525,000 for every season of the show.

The comedian initially joined as a reporter and copy editor at Staten Island Advance. He then sent a writing packet to Saturday Night Live that earned him a writing position in 2005.

Jost was the show’s writing supervisor from 2009 to 2012 and the co-head writer from 2012 to 2015. He even performed as a stand-up comedian and appeared on other popular shows.

Following the 2013 season, Lorne Michaels asked Jost if he was interested in doing the Weekend Update feature because Seth Meyers was leaving to host “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Jost accepted and began doing the Weekend Update feature in the next season.

He has stated that he draws from the work of Norm Macdonald and Tina Fey for his Weekend Update material and the comedic tone. He also wrote an episode for Seth Meyer’s show as well as an episode of the television series “Funny as Hell.”

Although he mainly does the Weekend Update features, he occasionally appears in other sketches. He portrayed John Kasich in a sketch of the Republican primary debates for the 2016 presidential election cycle, and for the 2020 democratic primary debates, he portrayed Pete Buttigieg who he had lived with while they both attended Harvard. In 2017, he returned to his role as head writer for “Saturday Night Live.”
