Watch Jimmy Kimmel Get a Colonoscopy With Katie Couric (Yes, You Read Correctly)


Well… this was something no one expected.

Ahead of his 50th birthday, Jimmy Kimmel documented his first colonoscopy. However, he told his audience that TV anchor Katie Couric had asked if she could join him, which he thought was an “unusual request.”

“You’re about to watch a camera go where no camera has… ever gone before,” Kimmel warned viewers.

The colonoscopy prep began last Thursday after his show’s taping and Couric prepped Kimmel a pre-colonscopy “cocktail” of sorts, which he chugged in a matter of seconds.

“That was impressive!” Couric reacted. “How was it?”

“Vile,” Kimmel responded.

Couric picked up Kimmel at 5:30 the next morning and drove him to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. And while Kimmel was getting ready, Couric informed viewers that colon cancer is the second-leading cancer killer for men and women combined in the U.S. and that Kimmel was “pretty psyched.”

Then came the final moments before the official probing.

“I’m telling you, I’ve met some real perverts in my life, but you take the cake, Katie Couric,” Kimmel said on the hospital bed. “Some very unusual, sexual thing.”

“It’s not sexual,” Couric laughed.

“Oh, it’s not sexual. Then what am I doing here?” Kimmel reacted.

They were then joined by Dr. Christina Ha, who he had go through a preliminary trial by having her play the board game Operation, which she passed with flying colors.

“Why do you think more people aren’t getting screened, Dr. Ha?” Couric asked.

“Because they go up your ass!” Kimmel exclaimed.

Then came the actual colonoscopy.

When Kimmel woke up, both Couric and Dr. Ha showed him the “interesting things” they found, like a set of keys, toy soldiers, and a harmonica.
