Rumor: Jimmy Kimmel Comedy Club in the Works for Linq
We live to scoop, and this is a juicy one if it comes to fruition.
Word is Caesars Entertainment is working on a deal to bring a Jimmy Kimmel comedy club to the Las Vegas Strip.
A reliable source says the deal hasn’t been finalized yet, but the comedy club would be at the Linq resort.
Jimmy Kimmel, of course, is the affable host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Kimmel is a Las Vegas native who got his start in the entertainment business during high school by hosting a show on UNLV’s college station, KUNV.
The Linq has a vacancy in its showroom due to the recent, and abrupt, departure of its “Divas Las Vegas” show amidst some glorious drama. Mat Franco’s magic show is currently the only show in the Linq’s theater.
Update (10/3/18): Our story has been confirmed by Jimmy Kimmel and Caesars Entertainment. The Jimmy Kimmel Comedy Club is set to open in spring 2019 at Linq promenade, across from Brooklyn Bowl. The 8,000-square-foot “expandable showroom” will seat up to 300 guests. The club will be open seven nights a week.
