"Jimmy Kimmel Live" goes BAM for the week of Oct. 15-19 when the late-night talk show takes up residence at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

ABC announced Monday that the five shows set to tape before a live audience at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House will feature comedians Adam Sandler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Mike Birbiglia, actor-director John Krasinski, rapper Cardi B and New York Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as guests, with musical performances from St. Vincent, BeBe Rexha, Wu Tang Clan and others.

Free tickets are available at attending must be at least 18 years old and bring a valid government-issued photo ID with a birth date. No photography is allowed, and the show recommends attendees arrive 30 to 45 minutes prior to the call time listed on the ticket. Tapings typically last an hour-and-a-half to two hours, excluding check-in, seating and audience warmup.

This is the fourth time Brooklyn native Kimmel, 50, has taped a series of shows at BAM, whose Howard Gilman Opera House is located at the main building at 30 Lafayette Avenue. "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" normally shoots at the El Capitan Entertainment Centre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.
