Through his serious monologues, Kimmel has “proven himself to be perhaps late night’s best avatar for viewers at home who aren’t furious progressives already enamored with the angry likes of John Oliver and Samantha Bee: emotional, shocked, and worried about the future,” according to Laura Bradley. But as she notes in going over Kimmel’s New York magazine cover story, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host doesn’t expect this political comedy era to last. “Maybe we’ll never go back,” he said in the interview. “Maybe the days of fun are over, but I like to think that they aren’t.” ALSO: Why Kimmel’s thoughts on why late-night TV lacks women and minorities are problematic.
