The venue will be 8,000 square feet with an expandable showroom that seats up to 300 guests.

Kimmel said, “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.”

More details on Kimmel’s comedy club will be announced later this year.
