Jimmy Kimmel Set to Moderate Conversation With Joe Biden and Barack Obama

Jimmy Kimmel will moderate a conversation between President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama for a Biden campaign fundraiser in Los Angeles next month. The event will also feature special guests George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

The fundraiser will be held June 15, with tickets starting at $250 per person and rising to $500,000 for an “event chair” tier. Proceeds go to the Biden Victory Fund.

Kimmel will not be the first late-night host to dip his toe in the game of presidential moderation this year. In March, Stephen Colbert moderated a New York Biden fundraiser that featured the current president, Obama and former President Bill Clinton in conversation. Per the Associated Press, the event raised $26 million.

News of Kimmel’s gig comes after a big week for the comedian, given he made headlines for his brutal Disney upfront monologue on Tuesday, during which he laid into into CEO Bob Iger, the Golden Bachelor, streaming bundles, Star Wars, Elon Musk and more.

“Bob Iger should be retired by now, he should be off on a yacht somewhere,” Kimmel told the audience. “Instead he’s here pretending to be excited about a new season of Will-Fucking-Trent. Bob tried to sell us last year, he put us up for sale, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, no one wanted to buy us. When no one was interested, Bob explained that he didn’t mean he literally wanted to sell us, he was just testing the waters for Wall Street. You know, Bob, when people test the waters, they usually dip in a toe, they don’t drown their children.”
