Kimmel notes that he wasn’t given specific feedback on jokes to avoid or even guidance on how long he should speak, quipping, “There seems to be no screening process whatsoever.”
“I don’t want to ruin the evening, so I’ve been seeking advice from people to see what sort of thing you can and can’t do,” he explained. “Depending on what you’re doing, there’s a wide swath, from Comedy Central Roast to funeral, I guess. So I have to figure out where I’m going to fit in.”
Kimmel also revealed that he emailed previous host Seth Meyers for some pointers. How do you think he’ll do at the star-studded event?
