Santa Karl

Posted in Characters, Jimmy Kimmel, Santa Karl by Aaron Burr on March 9, 2007

Reprised each Christmas season by former cast member Jimmy Kimmel, “Santa” Karl has become somewhat of an inside joke for longtime listeners. In this bit, Kimmel takes calls from children, posing as Santa Claus as he might be voiced by basketball player Karl Malone. As the children give him their gift wish lists, “Santa” Karl provides improvised, usually inappropriate responses laced with sexual innuendo and other adult references. This bit originated with Kimmel performing in a traditional Santa Claus voice, but changed during the year he began making fun of Karl Malone’s radio program, vowing to perform his entire on-air appearances as an impersonation of Malone.
