CHICAGO — “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” will film at famous hot dog stand The Wieners Circle on Wednesday night.

The host himself might not be there, but Kimmel’s sidekick, comedian Guillermo, is expected to be present. In a tweet and post on Facebook, the Wieners Circle encouraged Chicagoans to stop by and watch Guillermo “behind the counter.”

The Lincoln Park stand is famous for its char dogs — and for having employees trade foul jokes and insults with customers.

Guillermo has been traveling the United States, heading from Dallas to Atlanta and now on to Chicago. He’ll ultimately end up in Brooklyn for filming with Kimmel.

Filming is 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Wieners Circle, 2622 N. Clark St.
