Tyler, the Creator made his television debut with Jimmy Fallon, but he has more often returned to Jimmy Kimmel’s stage in years since. Whether evoking laughter from the audience as a guest of the talk show’s, participating in tailor-made sketches, or rocking a live crowd, the do-it-all rapper has gradually amassed a collection of moments with the ABC host.
