Back in the day, Jimmy Kimmel was known for being a bit of a drinker. He had an omnipresent beer in hand for tapings of The Man Show, and maybe 50% of the show's sketches revolved, in some way, around booze. The first episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, too, was an alcohol-fueled catastrophe or triumph, depending on how you look at it: A bar was placed on set, and Kimmel was totally sh*tfaced by the end of the show.
So it's nice to see that even with Kimmel all set to become the king of late night, he still hasn't gone too far from his roots. Last night, he knocked back several drinks while giving a toast at the Time 100 Gala. It was pretty amazing.
