James Christian Kimmel, Jimmy Kimmel for short, is an American comedian, television personality, producer, and writer that’s best known for his self-titled talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Throughout the years, Kimmel has acted as host and co-host to a variety of different television programs, including Comedy Central’s The Man Show and Win Ben Stein’s Money. Prior to his television career, Kimmel worked as a radio host on a college station before getting a job writing promotional content for Fox. He originally had no interest in working on-screen in any form, and even turned down several offers for television, until he was given the opportunity to work on Win Ben Stein’s money in 1997. In 2003, he began hosting his late-night talk show on ABC. When he’s not working, however, it seems like one of Kimmel’s favorite hobbies is adding to his property portfolio. The guy has owned quite a few places in Los Angeles – and Velvet Ropes is giving you a look at not only his former digs, but also all the current Jimmy Kimmel house details your heart desires!

Where Does Jimmy Kimmel Live?

Television host Jimmy Kimmel and fam are currently spending their quality quarantining time in their main residence located in the Hollywood Hills, but this isn’t Kimmel’s only Cali-based abode…

Jimmy Kimmel House Hollywood Hills

Up until 2014, Kimmel owned not one, but 2 separate homes in the Hollywood Hills! He purchased his current primary residence in the area back in 2008 for $6 million.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Current Home

Jimmy Kimmel’s Hollywood Hills home (aka his current place) is a contemporary residence that he picked up in 2008 for $6 million. The main house on the property boasts 5,500 square feet of living space as well as 4-bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

This is the infamous residence where Kimmel and his former neighbor, Actor John Krasinski, played many a prank on one another. Some being more over the top than others – like the time Kimmel gift wrapped Krasinski’s entire home during the holidays.

You may have noticed that we said “main house” above – that’s because the property actually features a second single-story building on the grounds. Kimmel uses this location as a guest house, office, and home theater combo.

In the photos below, we see a beautiful contemporary estate that boasts a large swimming pool and deck, a grassy backyard space, and a spacious living room as well as a 1-car garage at the front.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Former Home

His first house was a vintage, almost cottage-style, 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom home that Kimmel purchased in 2002 for $945,000. The property was built in 1947 and boasts views of the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Observatory.

Some features to this 3,605 square foot house include a bar, formal living room and dining spaces, a recording studio, a deck with an outdoor kitchen and pizza oven, and a swimming pool & spa. Despite not living at the residence for some time, Kimmel held on to the property until deciding to sell it in 2014 for $2.2 million.

Jimmy Kimmel House Hermosa Beach

Jimmy Kimmel’s home in Hermosa Beach was purchased in an off-market sale for around $8 million in 2017. Built in 1940, the simple beach cottage is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood and features gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean.

Boasting 4-bedrooms, 2-bathrooms, and 2,110 square feet, the charming home features lush landscapes and lots of outdoor space to enjoy. Some speculated that Kimmel would tear down the original structure to build a brand-new home, but the original property remains intact.

Instead of tearing down the original house, it seems Kimmel has decided to simply expand. He is currently constructing an even larger mansion on the property, as seen in the photo below.

Jimmy Kimmel Net Worth

Jimmy Kimmel is worth a reported $50 million. Jimmy Kimmel’s salary is $15 million per year.

Did Jimmy Kimmel Get Fired?

Back in 2023, while Jimmy was speaking on the firing of Don Lemon and Tucker Carlson, his opening monologue was interrupted by co-star Guillermo Rodriguez, who reported a supposed ABC News Special Report stating that the network was parting ways with Kimmel.

While most understood that the entire thing was a stunt for the show’s opening, others took it seriously – especially on social media. The writing team would later confirm that the moment was a scripted sketch for the show.

So no, Kimmel was never fired and continues to host his talk show!

Jimmy Kimmel Family

Many of Jimmy Kimmel’s immediate family have appeared or worked on Kimmel’s show at some point or other. His uncle, Frank Potenza, made recurring appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! until his passing in 2011. His aunt, Concetta Potenza, has also been featured on the show.

Cousin, Sal Lacono, actually ended up working on Jimmy’s show as a writer. His brother, Jonathan Kimmel, acts as a director on the show. Finally, Kimmel’s oldest son, Kevin, works as a production assistant on his father’s talk show. Keep reading for more on the Kimmel family!

Jimmy Kimmel Wife

So, who is Jimmy Kimmel married to? Jimmy Kimmel’s current wife is a woman by the name of Molly McNearny. The pair met while McNearny was working as a writing assistant on Kimmel’s show. At the time, both Molly and Jimmy were in relationships (this was when Kimmel was still dating comedian Sarah Silverman).

In 2009, after splitting with Silverman, Kimmel and McNearny began dating. McNearny was nervous about the prospect of dating a man who was essentially her boss, but ultimately the relationship worked out – and the couple wed in 2013.

Years prior to his marriage to Molly, Jimmy Kimmel had married Gina Maddy in 1988. The former husband and wife had 2 children together, Katie and Kevin, before divorcing in 2002.

Jimmy Kimmel Kids

How many kids does Jimmy Kimmel have? Four! Jimmy Kimmel children are: Katie (age 32), Kevin (age 30), Jane (age 9), and William John Billy (age 7). *ages as of June 2024.

Katie and Kevin are from Kimmel’s former marriage to Gina, while Jane and Billy are from his current marriage to Molly.

What Happened to Jimmy Kimmel’s Son?

Shortly after his birth in 2017, the Kimmels’ youngest son “Billy” was diagnosed with a serious congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia. Billy was forced to undergo 2 surgeries before he was even a year old.

During a 2017 opening monologue on his show, Kimmel spoke about his son’s condition and made a public plea to for the government not to stop providing affordable health insurance for those that suffer from preexisting conditions.

Fortunately, Billy Kimmel is thriving now and celebrated his 7th birthday in April 2024.

Where Is Jimmy Kimmel Filmed?

Jimmy Kimmel Live! Is usually filmed in the heart of Hollywood on Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles, California. During the pandemic, however, Kimmel filmed remotely from his California home.

Jimmy Kimmel Age

So, how old is Jimmy Kimmel? He was born on November 13, 1967 – making him currently 56 years old.

How Tall Is Jimmy Kimmel?

Jimmy Kimmel has stated he is 6ft 1in in height. When measured by a health practitioner on television, however, he was told that his height was 5ft 11.75in. Jimmy Kimmel’s height is a sore topic for the comedian. LOL

What’s with the Jimmy Kimmel Matt Damon Obsession?

Chances are if you’ve ever watched Jimmy Kimmel’s show, you know about the feud of all feuds between Kimmel and actor Matt Damon. You will also know at this point that this feud is all in good fun and a complete and total hoax.

The gag started on the third season of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. After a particularly unsatisfying show, Kimmel (jokingly) apologized for not having Matt Damon on the show that night due to running out of time. Damon was not actually meant to appear on the show (and obviously would not have been bumped from the lineup in reality), but Kimmel just randomly selected his name to make the joke.

Well, the jest was liked so much by the show’s producer that Kimmel continued to make the same joke every night. A year later, Damon was actually invited to the late-night talk show to appear in a fake fight between him and Kimmel – and he showed up! The sketches between Damon and Kimmel continued – even involving Kimmel’s then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman at one point.

Silverman and Damon created a music video titled “F*@#ing Matt Damon,” which instantly went viral on YouTube. 13 years later, the faux feud still stands, with Kimmel and Damon continuing to make hilarious sketches that tell the story of their “strained” relationship.
