While Jimmy Kimmel has been making the headlines lately, first with his stance on healthcare and now with his stance on gun control, he'll be bringing that act back to Brooklyn starting October 16, and he'll be bringing his friends with him as well.

The last time Kimmel did a week of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Brooklyn was October 2015. He was born in Brooklyn and lived there until he was nine years old when his family moved to Las Vegas, where he graduated from high school and attended one year of college. (He later did another two years at Arizona State University.

So now he's heading back to his birthplace once again. They'll tape in front of a live audience at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Howard Gilman Opera House. It will be his third time hosting his show from this location.

He has quite an impressive New Yorker guest list lined up for the week. His guests will include former Late Night and Late Show host David Letterman, Billy Joel, Tracy Morgan, Amy Schumer, and Howard Stern.

In addition, when the house band, Cleto and the Cletones, sits down to play each night, they'll be joined by Paul Shaffer, the former bandleader for both Letterman's shows, Late Show and Late Night.

Perhaps Kimmel could be convinced to eventually visit Washington, D.C. He's been doing so well lighting up late night with his political comments that taking on the political topic du jour in the nation's capitol could make for a great week.

After the birth of his son Billy last spring, he started shaming lawmakers for trying to replace and replace Obamacare. Billy needed heart surgery when he was days old, and his dad realized not everyone has his fortune to get it done.

This week Kimmel is on the attack again after the mass shooting in Las Vegas, his second hometown. He's encouraging lawmakers to do something about gun control while acknowledging that "the NRA has their balls in a money clip."
