Jimmy Kimmel was back hosting “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Monday night.
Comedian Mike Birbiglia was filling in for him while he was out.
Kimmel assures his audience that his “whole family’s fine” after they all contracted the virus.
Kimmel said “I was tired. I had a little bit of a headache.”
“But those are also the symptoms of having children,” he quipped.
He said that he almost felt like he “deserved” to get COVID-19.
Kimmel said he had been “obnoxiously pleased with myself that I hadn’t gotten it yet.”
He also revealed “one of the weirdest things” about getting COVID-19 as a TV show host.
“When you get COVID, everyone knows it,” he said.
