Kimmel’s show heads to SXSW festival in March
Question of the Day
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Jimmy Kimmel is taking his late-night show to Texas for the South by Southwest festival.
ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” said Thursday it will air five shows in March from Austin. The Texas city hosts the international showcase for music, film and interactive projects that’s in its 28th year.
Kimmel’s guests will include celebrities and musical performers from South by Southwest. Comedy segments shot at the festival and around Texas also will be part of the shows.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” will air from Austin beginning March 10. Kimmel quipped that he’ll be the guy “covered in barbeque sauce.”
His show’s visit to South by Southwest comes just weeks after NBC’s “Tonight Show” passes in February from host Jay Leno in Los Angeles to Jimmy Fallon in New York.
A year ago, Kimmel moved his show back a half-hour, to 11:35 p.m. Eastern, in direct competition with “Tonight” and David Letterman’s show on CBS.
The road trip is Kimmel’s first since his time slot change. In 2012, the show visited New York for a week and posted one of its top-rated weeks in its nearly 11-year run.
