Jimmy Kimmel to Host Presidents Biden and Obama at L.A. Fundraiser

Just in case you weren’t sure where Jimmy Kimmel stood in the upcoming presidential election, he’s making it explicit, taking part in an upcoming fundraiser that will see him in conversation with President Biden and Former President Obama.

The event, which is scheduled to take place June 15th in Los Angeles, comes on the heels of a New York event hosted by Kimmel’s late-night competitor Stephen Colbert. That event, which saw Colbert interview Biden, Obama and Bill Clinton at Radio City Music Hall, raised a record-setting $26 million for Biden’s reelection campaign.

A venue hasn’t yet been announced for Kimmel’s event, but it’s set to include at least two other Hollywood heavy hitters in George Clooney and Julia Roberts, who are being billed as “special guests.”

A frequent foe of Donald Trump, Kimmel’s name has come up several times in the former president’s hush money trial in New York, much to the ABC host’s delight. Meanwhile, both Presidents Biden and Obama have guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live! four times each.

Tickets for the L.A. event start at $250 a piece, and go up to $500,000. (Those contributing $25,000 or more will have the opportunity to be photographed with Roberts and Clooney, while $100,000 or more will get you a photo with the two presidents.)
