"Jimmy Kimmel Live" will shoot a week of shows in October, the ABC late night host told Kelly Ripa on her morning show Monday.

Kimmel, a Brooklyn native, has never brought his show on the road since its debut in 2003. He is scheduled to do the shows from the Brooklyn Academy of Music in the Fort Greene neighborhood from October 29 - November 2.

The show will also celebrate a new NBA team to the New York City borough. The New Jersey Nets recently relocated to Brooklyn, a move that became high profile partially thanks to co-owner Jay-Z's hand in rebranding the team to reflect its new location.

According to a tweet from Kimmel, tickets to the shows will be available here.

"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Kimmel's NBC competitor, recently did several shows from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Notably, President Barack Obama appeared as Fallon's guest on the first episode. Kimmel may not have hosted Obama on his show, but he recently performed comedy for the President at the White House Correspondents Association dinner.

"Conan," TBS's late night talk show, will travel to Chicago for week of shows in June. The also show did a week of shows in New York City last fall. Later this summer, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" will produce shows from Tampa and South Carolina for the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, respectively.
