AND WASN’T EVEN THE COMPETITIVENESS OVER THE RACING. IT WAS OVER THE NAMES. WE NEEDED TO HAVE NAMES ON THE SCOREBOARD. IT WAS LIKE AN INDOOR GO-KARTING TRACK.

HE WAS THE CHART HE MEMBER OF THE 3790 CLUB WHICH STOOD FOR THREE SONS, SEVEN HIGH SCHOOLS, NINE COLLEGES, ZERO DEGREES. [ LAUGHTER ] [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] THAT ALWAYS GETS A LAUGH. REALLY FUNNY.

  1. happy birthday jimmy!shoutout from the UAE. im an overseas filipino worker and i watch your videos to give me a lot of laughs when im lonely especially my family is not here with me…

  2. Fun fact: I named my eldest child after Owen Wilson and am now dedicated to convincing him to dress as… Ned Zissou for Halloween next year. Not Lightning McQueen. Definitely not.

  3. He is such a good man. Probably many people are not aware of the fact that he tried to commit a suicide and was extremely close to death. I think it was his girlfriend who brought him back to life with her love.

  4. I love Jimmy Kimmel.. it's no comparison to Fallon..
    He lets his guests talk and doesn't act over the top that you feel embarrassed only by watching 😬
    thanks Jimmy K for being a great host with a serious interest for your guests (as far as it appears to me ;))
