Jimmy Kimmel Uses Webcam to Record Show After Power Outage

Jimmy Kimmel films during power outage

If looks a little shakier than usual tonight, don’t try adjusting your sets.

When a last-minute power outage threatened to derail Monday’s taping of his program, Jimmy Kimmel did what any other comedian would do: improvise.

Thankfully, Jimmy’s guests - The Green Hornet‘s and Wipeout‘s John Henson - were both game for the experiment. Singer Dierks Bentley even put on an acoustic performance.

Curious to see Kimmel’s skills behind the camera? Then stay tuned after Nightline ends at 12:05 a.m. EDT/PDT.
