During an appearance on The Ellen Show, the actor unveiled the charitable endeavor, stating,

“Jon Stewart is doing next for autism. And we have auctioned off an uncomfortable dinner. On Omaze, and it will be incredibly uncomfortable.”

The duo’s long-standing frenemy relationship, characterized by their playful hatred for each other, raises the question: When did this complex play first unfold?


The origins of this captivating rivalry dates back to the third season of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2005. Concluding a particularly challenging show, the host jestingly apologized to Damon for the show running out of time, humorously attributing it to a “bad show” with impaired guests.

Kimmel also explained to the media,

“The guests were bad, and I was feeling pretty bad about myself at the end of the program, and I decided to say [it] for the amusement of one of our producers, who was standing next to me.” 

This offhand remark, initially shared for the amusement of a nearby producer, soon took on a life of its own, evolving into a nightly tradition. Why, then, Damon? 


Kimmel claimed that he required an A-list celebrity that they would never even think about removing from the show. As a result, the artist’s name popped into his head, and the joke snowballed into a phenomenon.

Over the years, the two have continued to exchange playful insults on talk shows and in interviews, showcasing their remarkable comedic chemistry and their talent for entertaining while upholding a friendly rivalry that endures to this day.
