Jimmy Kimmel Readies Himself to Mock the President a Room of Nerds


Huffington Post: The president of the White House Correspondents Association described you as “sophisticated and edgy while appealing to a wide audience.” Do you agree?

Jimmy Kimmel: Only with the word “wide.” “Sophisticated?” Obviously, she and I have never met. I’m not someone you would describe as a sophisticated man. But you know what, I understand the room and I’m comfortable in almost any forum and I’m sure it will work out fine. Well, I hope it will work out fine. But I will try to lean towards being sophisticated instead of leaning on my normal assortment of farting jokes.
