Caesars Entertainment Partners with Jimmy Kimmel to Open Comedy Club at The LINQ Promenade Spring 2019

8,000 Square-Foot, Two-Story Venue Available for Intimate Event Spaces & Buy-Outs for Private Events Up to 300 Guests 

LAS VEGAS (November 4, 2018) – In spring 2019, Caesars Entertainment Corporation, (NASDAQ: CZR, "Caesars Entertainment" or "Caesars"), the world's most geographically diversified casino-entertainment company, will open Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club at The LINQ Promenade in Las Vegas which is directly connected via skybridge to the upcoming CAESARS FORUM opening in 2020.

 In partnership with Caesars Entertainment, the new club will showcase comedians ranging from up-and-coming talent to household names curated by Kimmel and his team in a venue designed by Jimmy and his comedian friends. 

 “Building a club like this in my hometown is a dream come true,” said Kimmel, who grew up in Las Vegas. “I’ve done extensive research, consulting with veteran comics to create the ideal venue for comedians and comedy lovers.  My aim is to capture the spirit of classic Vegas with late night shows, surprise guests, live music, memorabilia from my career and food that will rival the finest restaurants in town.  Every comic who plays this club will get first-class treatment.  I am obsessing over every detail to make this the most comedy-friendly club in the world.”

 At 8,000 square feet, the venue will be the optimal setting for both comedy talent and the audience, with an expandable showroom that seats up to 300 guests. The club will be open seven nights a week, with a bar open daily and shows offered nightly. The club will also be available for buy-outs for meetings and private events.

 “We are elated by the opportunity to collaborate with Jimmy Kimmel on his first and only comedy club,” said Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment. “As the leader in establishing iconic residencies in Las Vegas, we are creating this club to be an innovative and exceptional live comedy venue. Of course, Kimmel’s longtime Las Vegas affinity means he understands the city and what audiences want to see. Together, we look forward to delivering a top-quality comedy experience on the Las Vegas Strip.”
