He's become one of late-night TV's funniest men and now Jimmy Kimmel is taking his show on the road.

Kimmel will be in Austin all next week, and we will be there with him to highlight South by Southwest, one of largest film, music and interactive festivals in the country.

"Oh ya everybody is coming down. My band is coming, Guillermo is coming, announcer Dicky, my cousin Sal, my aunt Chippy, the whole gang will be here," Kimmel said.

The south's biggest interactive, film and music festival attracts folks from all over the world, and Kimmel wants to see what it's all about.

"The food is great, the people are very nice, it's just a good place to visit," Kimmel said.

Kimmel says you can expect to see some of Austin's A-listers including Willie Nelson, Mathew Mcconaughey and Sandra Bullock, but there's one Texan he really want's to meet while he's here.

"You know I would like to paint with George Bush. I would like to sit down and maybe paint each other, preferably in the shower," Kimmel said.

We'll have to wait and see. But one thing's for sure: Keeping his cousin Sal out of trouble is going to be a full time job.

"My cousin Sal does weird stuff on the show but nothing will compare what he does every single day at the office. So there is a good chance he will get arrested," Kimmel said,

Some of the biggest stars in Hollywood are headed to the festival, and to Kimmel's show.

It's going to be a huge week!
