Kimmel recently explained in an interview with NPR: “We had a bad show. The guests were bad, and I was feeling pretty bad about myself at the end of the program. And he got a kick out of it, the producer, so I just started doing it every night to amuse him.

In 2015, she starred in the drama I Smile Back, for which she was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. After beginning her stand-up comedy in 1992, Silverman was part of the 1993–94 season of Saturday Night Live (SNL) for 18 weeks as a writer and featured player.She was fired after one season where only one of the sketches she wrote survived to dress rehearsal and none aired, although she did appear on the show as a cast member in skits, usually in smaller supporting roles.

In closing, Kimmel promised to get Damon a small TV (but no Wi-Fi) for his basement dressing room apartment, and try harder to actually have him on the show.I was trying to think of an A-list star, and somebody we absolutely would not bump if he was on the show.
