Kimmel Jimmied Open,

Appendix Out

6/21/2007 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy KimmelLate-night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel missed the taping of last night's show -- and for good reason.

TMZ has learned that Kimmel required an emergency appendectomy on Wednesday night in L.A., and though the surgery was successful, all tapings of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" have been canceled until Kimmel recovers.

His rep tells us that Jimmy "is resting comfortably and is looking forward to getting back to work."

We eagerly await the inevitable avalanche of side-splitting (sorry) barbs from Jimmy's best girl, Sarah Silverman.

What's up with this picture? Did someone snap this just as the anethesic was wearing off? If not, he was definitely smoking a little somethin' somethin'.

My 83 year old mom adores your show Jimmy. We were just talking about what happened to you the last few days (all repeats). I had to immediately call her and tell her you were recovering. She forgives you. LOL. Take care. Get back on TV soon!
