Transcript for Jimmy Kimmel returns to Vegas
Vegas where he spent a good deal of his childhood opening up a brand-new comedy club with his name on it and ABC's Clayton Sandell got an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour. Reporter: Jimmy Kimmel is trading his sit-down interviews -- Our first guest tonight. Reporter: -- For stand-up comedy. The late night comic -- Three, two, one. Reporter: -- Debuting his new club on the Vegas strip. I grew up in Las Vegas and I always kind of fantasized about having my name on one of these buildings here in Las Vegas and, you know, I'm not a magician. So can you show us around a little bit? Yeah, I'll show you around. Sure. This is a microphone. Reporter: For Kimmel the club feels a lot like home because in a way it is. Let me show you what my house looks like because we have a bar. It's a barn next to my house and when I came here for the first time, it's identical to home. Reporter: Even the shelves are stocked with props from shows that made him famous. We tried to fill this club with all the stuff my wife doesn't want in our house. Reporter: Comic Sarah Silverman, Pete Holmes and Chris tucker took the stage Friday night. Kimmel's TV family also showing up. This place is great. It's fantastic. Reporter: Along with his real family. One of the opening acts, his sister Jill. Who do you want to impress more than your big brother? This is the green room. This is a nice green room. I take it all comedy club green rooms are not this nice. I have a feeling it won't be nice in about six months' time. Comedians are not what you call hygienic. Reporter: Vegas is also where one of Kimmel's comedy idols played for six decades. As I look at you now, you have to get a nose job. What do you think don Rickles would think about this? He would hate everything about it and I wish he could be here tonight. Reporter: For "Good morning America." He's Clayton Sandell, ABC news, Las Vegas. That's the best signoff ever. I know. I love that so much. I love how he said he would put all the stuff his wife didn't want in their house in Actually what I've done with my office at ABC news very successfully. Thank you, Bianca.
