One of the best running gags on Jimmy Kimmel Live is his ongoing “feud” with Matt Damon. Jimmy ends every show apologizing to Matt Damon for running out of time, and occasionally over the years, the two have antagonized each other face to face. This time, they met with an actual counsellor (who kept an amazingly straight face through it all) and talked about all the past hurts (including that time Matt Damon tied Jimmy up and took over the show). What was funniest for us, though, was the conceit that Matt Damon is literally spending every week day at the theater, just waiting to get on the show. Eventually, it was their attempt at art therapy that really bridged the gap, with Jimmy’s artistic rendition of Matt Damon causing everyone involved to break out into hysterics, thus ending the feud… for now.
And in honor of Sarah Silverman’s speech at the DNC, let’s take a look back at a classic entry of the Matt/Jimmy feud from back in the day when Sarah and Jimmy were dating.
