Jimmy Kimmel is getting back to his roots.

The late-night TV host is returning to his hometown of Brooklyn for a week of shows starting on Monday.

The 54-year-old Emmy-winner will tape five original “Kimmel in Brooklyn” shows in front of a live studio audience from the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Howard Gilman Opera House, with celebrity guests ranging from Amy Schumer to Tracy Morgan.

This will be the sixth time that “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” which normally airs from Hollywood, has traveled to the Big Apple — and the first time since 2019.

Kimmel was born in the Mill Basin area of Brooklyn in 1967 and lived in the borough until age 9, when his family moved to Las Vegas.

His late-night show on ABC premiered in January of 2003 and has since become the longest-running late-night talk show on the network.

Next week, the show, which airs weeknight at 11:35 p.m. ET, will feature a long list of A-listers.

Schumer and Charlamagne Tha God will appear on Monday, with Run The Jewels as the musical guest. David Letterman and Tracy Morgan will stop by on Tuesday. Wednesday will see Mila Kunis and Ramy Youssef, with Future as the musical guest. Ben Stiller appears Thursday with musical guest, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. And Jason Bateman is on deck for Friday, along with Paul Simon.

Audience members won’t be required to show proof of vaccinations, but “masks will be highly recommended while you are at BAM,” producers said. Some free tickets were still available as of Friday night on the 1iota.com fan site.
