Jimmy Kimmel Dishes on Hosting the White House Correspondents Dinner

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the upcoming White House Correspondents Dinner, and the comedian recently sat for an interview with the Huffington Post to discuss the daunting task.

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?
