More On: Jimmy Kimmel
To the rescue, Disney! President Joe Biden will give a sit-down interview to Disney-owned ABC late night star Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, ending a 120-day self-imposed press embargo.
Their conversation will air at 11:35 p.m. in what has been guaranteed to be a nonsense-free zone.
Kimmel mentioned the appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live: NBA Finals Game Night" on Sunday, according to Variety.
"Our very elected President @JoeBiden visits @JimmyKimmelLive Wednesday night. No malarkey."
Biden appeared on Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" several times before his election, and his most recent visit was on Jimmy Kimmel's show in 2019, when he was running for the Democratic nomination against his own party.
He agreed to further interviews during the subsequent presidential campaign, albeit the results may not have always been what he had hoped:

While this is Biden's first in-studio interview as commander in chief, the New York Post notes that he was a virtual guest on NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in December 2021.
On Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, the interview will be taped at the El Capitan Entertainment Centre.
