Jimmy Kimmel Married Because He 'Needed A Panini Maker,' Comedian Jokes (VIDEO)

For Jimmy Kimmel, having a wedding wasn't just about celebrating the beginning of his new life with writer Molly McNearney -- it was about scoring some household appliances.

In his first show back since the July 13 wedding, the late night host joked, "The reason I got married is I needed a panini maker and it seemed like the cheapest way to get it."

The newlywed funnyman cracked several other wedding jokes throughout his monologue.

"I would like to give a special thanks to everyone at the Extended Stay in Pomona who made us feel so welcome. Thank you. Thank you for the late check out."

Kimmel tied the knot with McNearney in Ojai, Calif. earlier this month. The pair then spent a couple of weeks honeymooning in Italy.
