Everything I have ever read about Jimmy Kimmel makes him stand like an outstanding person. Sure, women might hold it against him that he hosted The Man Show, which was maybe a tad bit sexist in its portrayal of women. I will give them that. However, most every story you hear about Kimmel is him doing something awesome, be it throwing outrageous parties for his friends like Howard Stern or standing up to Jay Leno, on Jay Leno's own show.
Now Kimmel is doing his part to help Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The desk that he used during this past week's Jimmy Kimmel Live tapings at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Harvey Theater will be auctioned off, with the proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross.
The desk, which was Brooklyn-themed and custom made, was signed by David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who all guested on Kimmel's show during the week.
Kimmel originally intended to air five shows during the week, but had to cancel on October 29 due to the destructive storm. Other shows were affected as well, with Letterman's Late Show and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon taping their shows on Monday without audiences, to keep people safe.
Big ups to Kimmel.
