Jimmy Kimmel Honors Kobe Bryant, Films Without Live Audience (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel is paying tribute to Kobe Bryant.

The 52-year-old Jimmy Kimmel Live! host honored the late basketball player during the episode that aired on Monday (January 27) – one day after Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna‘s tragic passing, which Jimmy called “a punch in the gut for many of us.”

“We don’t have a studio audience here tonight because — going forward with a comedy show didn’t feel right considering what happened yesterday — so I’d like to just speak to you directly,” Jimmy said during his opening monologue.

Kobe was — and I know this might not make sense — but he was just the last person you could have ever imagined something like this happening to,” Jimmy continued. “He was so strong — and handsome — and smart — and energetic — he was a hero.”

“And when I say that, I don’t mean a hero like real heroes — like firefighters, or doctors and nurses — who actually save lives,” Jimmy added. “I don’t mean to compare what he did for a living to what they do. I know there are more important things than basketball. Almost everything is more important.”

“But Kobe was a hero in the way Superman is a hero,” Jimmy said. “He was so big and full of life, it was almost like he was a fictional character. A real-life superhero — with a costume and everything — walking amongst us.”

Kumail Nanjiani On His Body Transformation Reveal: 'It Really Got Out of Control'

Kumail Nanjiani paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (January 23) and dished about the reaction to showing off his amazing body transformation with his viral Instagram post.

The 41-year-old Eternals actor explained to Jimmy that he took the photos before Christmas while shooting The Eternals so he could have proof that his body looked the way it did: “Who knows what I’m going to look like after Christmas?” he recalled thinking at the time. “As soon as I saw the picture, I was like the world must see this,”

After the photo “exploded,” Kumail called the reception “super weird.” “It was a weird couple of days… It really got out of control,” he said.

“My brother said, ‘Dad already sent your naked pics to both family’s Whatsapp groups.’ And then it goes in newspapers in Pakistan,” Kumail continued. “So I had all my aunts texting me pictures of myself, like ‘so proud of you.’ It’s weird to have your aunts sending you naked pictures of yourself.”

“The biggest problem is once you get that, you don’t stop exercising,” Kumail explained of his fitness routine after Kimmel was quick to comment on how “ripped” the actor was now. “I wish it was like a video game where you hit save,” he added.

Kumail also talked about what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson thought of his muscles, his new show Little America and Jimmy surprises him with pizza and desserts which lead to Kumail breaking his diet for the first time in a year.

During her interview, Ilana called out world leaders for not doing more in the face of global warming.

“It’s kind of funny in a sick way how the planet is burning and our leaders don’t talk about it all day, every day. Shouldn’t we be solving the problem of the thing we’re standing on?” Ilana said.

“It’s almost like they think they’re gonna get in trouble for admitting that the planet is burning, like it’s gonna be their fault,” Ilana continued. “It’s like no, bro, it’s not about you, you know? It’s so pathetic and weak that they can’t figure it out for us.”

Ilana Glazer: The Planet is Burning is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video now.
