Fast & Funny Facts: Jimmy Kimmel

Today's Funny Facts are dedicated to my homegirl, @ButterflyBlu, who requested him in the card about fellow late night talk show host, Jimmy Fallon!

Maybe you were a big fan of 'The Man Show' and have been a dedicated viewer of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' for the past 12 year, but do you think you know EVERYTHING there is to know about him? Test your wits with the five funny facts below.
(Also, weird thing that just popped into my head - Does anyone else remember when he was the host of 'Win Ben Stein's Money'?)

Jimmy was a morning radio DJ for a number of west coast stations - including KCMJ 92.7 in Palm Springs, where his intern was 'The Voice' host Carson Daly!

Jimmy plays the bass clarinet and has performed quite a few times with the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. (Did you know his announcer is their lead singer, Dicky Barrett?)

Jimmy is a pretty damn good artist. He loves to draw, and when he was 11 years old, he created his own comic books with his very own imaginary superheroes.

Jimmy has spoken openly about being diagnosed with narcolepsy. In 2003, he wrote a personal account for Esquire on the issue, titled 'What It Feels Like To Have Narcolepsy'.

Jimmy has done voice acting for an absurd amount of dogs - including Death's Dog on 'Family Guy', Corky the dog on 'Road Trip', and Spanky, a dog from the 2004 'Garfield' movie.

And those are Tuesday's five funny facts!

Are you a big fan of Jimmy Kimmel? Who should I write about next? Let me know in the comments below!

@Sara3 He looks a lot better lately! I think he lost a lot of weight on top of growing that beard.
