In New York Magazine’s October 30–November 12, 2017, issue cover story, comedian and talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel speaks with senior editor David Marchese about becoming a target of the right, not knowing if things are going to be okay, the state of late-night TV, and why it’s time to reboot The Man Show.
“Talking with Jimmy Kimmel, it’s clear that he’s just as surprised as everyone else is about his transformation from regular-guy talk-show host to political truth-teller,” says Marchese of his interview with the comedian. “It’s also clear that there’s a big part of him that wishes politics were a subject he never had to address so personally. Or put another way, he’s more publicly comfortable advocating for the return of The Man Show than he is for health-care reform.”
