Jimmy Kimmel Gets Colonoscopy, Documents the Procedure with Katie Couric's Help

21 March 2018

The Kardashians bring camera crews to their Ob-Gyn appointments. Her first husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer back in 1998. "I know this is something Katie is passionate about and it's an important thing to do", the late-night host said about the colon cancer-detecting procedure on Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Jimmy Kimmel upped the ante and invited viewers to watch him undergo his first colonoscopy. Couric arrives at 5:30 a.m.to pick up the talk show host. But Couric joked with Kimmel that keys, toy soldiers and a harmonica were recovered.

United States journalist and author Katie Couric took Jimmy Kimmel for his first colonoscopy, going "where no camera has gone before".

"Getting screened, you can nip it in the bud, literally", she added.

In November, Kimmel turned 50, which is age the American Cancer Society recommends for the colorectal cancer screening. Couric feels a "responsibility to inform people".

Luckily, Kimmel was given a clean bill of health with no polyps.

Kimmel's colonoscopy went off without a hitch - he had a clean colon with no polyps - and the comic even walked away with some personal items found during the exam: his vehicle keys, some toy soldiers, and a harmonica.
