Biography

Kimmel was born on November 13, 1967 in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in the neighborhood of Mill Basin as the eldest of three children of Joan (née Iacono), a homemaker, and James John Kimmel, who worked at American Express and was an IBM executive.

He is, and was raised, Catholic, and as a child was an altar server. Kimmel's mother is of Italian ancestry from Ischia, whose family migrated to the United States following the 1883 earthquake, while two of his paternal great-great-grandparents were German immigrants. His family's surname was "Kümmel" ("caraway" in German) several generations back.
