Former Jimmy Kimmel writer shares details of his time working there (it's not great)



  • Reacting to the news Pete Buttigieg is going to be guest hosting Jimmy Kimmel's show, former writer Jack Allison decided to drop some deets on what it was like working for the show

  • (BTW if his name seems familiar it's because Allison is also the writer who wrote about how Michael Che became obsessed with him after he dropped a few tweets criticizing SNL)

  • Reveals that the writers openly used homophobic and racial slurs

  • Allison also reveals that when his struggles with mental issues became public knowledge at the Kimmel offices he was ostracized by his co-workers and many accused him of faking his struggles

  • Allison claims that when he revealed his salary to a female co-worker so that she could use it as leverage to get a pay bump Kimmel accused him of violating his trust and also admitted that no one except Kimmel himself believed that he had mental issues
