Caesars Entertainment has announced it will be partnering with comedian Jimmy Kimmel to open Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club, which will be connected via skybridge to the upcoming meetings venue Caesars Forum.
Caesars Forum is a $375m development which will expand Caesars meetings offering in Las Vegas, and is scheduled to be completed by 2020. The new comedy club will offer a unique form of entertainment for those attending business events at the venue.
Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club will showcase comedians ranging from up-and-coming talent to household names curated by Kimmel and his team, in a venue designed by Jimmy and his comedian friends.
The venue will be 8,000 square feet in size, with an expandable showroom that seats up to 300 guests. The club will be open seven nights a week, with a bar open daily and shows offered nightly. The club will also be available for buy-outs for meetings and private events.
Kimmel commented: “Building a club like this in my hometown is a dream come true. I’ve done extensive research, consulting with veteran comics to create the ideal venue for comedians and comedy lovers.
My aim is to capture the spirit of classic Vegas with late night shows, surprise guests, live music, memorabilia from my career and food that will rival the finest restaurants in town. Every comic who plays this club will get first-class treatment. I am obsessing over every detail to make this the most comedy-friendly club in the world.”
