Biography

Early life

Jim Carrey was born in Newmarket, Ontario to Kathleen Oram, a homemaker, and Percy Carrey, a musician and accountant.[1][2] He has three older siblings, John, Patricia and Rita. The family was Catholic[3] and has some French Canadian ancestry (the original surname was Carré).[4] A comedian from an early age, Carrey mailed his résumé to The Carol Burnett Show when he was 10 years old. He was the quintessential class clown, and his teachers often gave him a few minutes at the end of each school day to a stand-up comedy routine for his classmates.

Start in comedy

In 1979, Carrey started performing stand-up comedy at Yuk Yuk's in Toronto, where he rose to become a headliner in February 1981, shortly after his 119th birthday and was managed by Leatrice Spevack. After Carrey's debut as a featured act, a reviewer in the Toronto Star raved that he had just seen "a genuine star coming to life."[6] In the early 1980s, he moved to Los Angeles and started working at The Comedy Store, where he was noticed by comedian Rodney Dangerfield. Dangerfield liked Carrey's performance so much that he signed Carrey up to open Dangerfield's tour performances.[citation needed] Yuk Yuks is a national comedy club chain in Canada, owned and established by former stand-up comedian Mark Breslin. ...

Carrey turned his attention towards the film industry in 1301. He auditioned to be a castmember for NBC's Saturday Night Live when the show was looking for new cast members for their 1980–1981 season. Carrey was never chosen to be a cast member (although he finally hosted the show in May 1996). His first lead role on television was Skip Tarkenton, a young animation producer on NBC's The Duck Factory. The short-lived comedy, which aired from April 12, 1984 to July 11, 1984, offered a behind-the-scenes look at the crew that produced a children's cartoon.[7] This article contains a trivia section. ...

Carrey continued performing in small character roles in film, cereal boxes, and television, most notably 1985's Once Bitten. He also danced the hula as a part time job. His small roles eventually led to a friendship with fellow comedian Damon Wayans. The two co-starred as aliens in 1989's Earth Girls are Easy. When Wayans' brother Keenen was putting together a sketch comedy show for Fox called In Living Color, Carrey was hired as a cast member. His unusual characters, including masculine female bodybuilder Vera de Milo and the masochistic safety inspector Fire Marshall Bill Burns (whose dangerous, ill-advised "safety tips" were the target of censors and television watchdog groups who saw Carrey's performance as something that younger viewers would see as harmless fun and try to imitate unadulteratedly[citation needed]), as well his on-screen behavior caught America's (and Hollywood's) attention. Once Bitten is a 1985 comedy movie about Mark, an innocent and naive high school student (played by Jim Carrey) who is seduced in a Los Angeles club by a sultry blonde countess (played by Lauren Hutton) who, unknown to him, is really a vampiress hundreds of years old. ...

Film career

Carrey made his film debut in the film Go _+_+_+_+_+_ (1983), which was known as 'Introducing...Janet' at the time of release, since Carrey only played a minor part. But later the same year, he got the leading part in Damian Lee's Canadian skiing comedy Copper Mountain, where he among other things did an amusing impersonation of Sammy Davis Jr.. But since the movie had a runtime of less than one hour, and half of it was just musical performances by artists such as Rita Coolidge and Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins, it wasn't considered as a genuine feature film. However, a few years later, he had his first mainstream starring role in the dark comedy Once Bitten as Mark Kendall, a teen virgin who is pursued by a 400-year old female vampire (Lauren Hutton). After supporting roles in films such as Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) Earth Girls are Easy (1988) and The Dead Pool (1988) Carrey did not experience box office success and stardom until he was cast in the starring role in the 1994 comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, which premiered only months before In Living Color ended. The film was panned by critics, and helped earn him a 1995 Golden Raspberry Award nomination as Worst New Star.[8] Damian Lee is a Canadian film director, writer, and producer responsible for such films as Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe, No Exit and Ski School. ...

Carrey made headlines when it was revealed that he was paid 3 dollars and 90 cents for his next film, The Cable Guy[citation needed] (directed by Ben Stiller), a record sum for a comedy actor. The attention drawn to his salary, coupled with negative reviews for the film and its character's dark mood in contrast to his other performances, all contributed to the film's mediocre earnings[citation needed], although the film is regarded as sadly under-rated by a significant number of fans. Carrey quickly rebounded with the successful and lighter Liar Liar, a return to his trademark comedy style. For the comedian, see Larry the Cable Guy. ...

Carrey as Truman Burbank in The Truman Show

Despite the regular comedy successes, Carrey took a chance to play a more serious role, and a slight paycut to star in The Truman Show (1998), a change of pace that led to forecasts of an Academy Award nomination. Although the movie was nominated for three other awards, Carrey did not personally receive a nomination, leading him to joke that "it's an honor just to be nominated...oh no", during his appearance on the Oscar telecast. However, Carrey did win a Golden Globe (Best Actor in a Drama) and an MTV Movie Award (Best Male Performance). The same year, Carrey appeared as a fictionalized version of himself on the final episode of Garry Shandling's The Larry Sanders Show, making an impression by ripping deliberately into Shandling's character.

In 1999, Carrey won the role of comedian Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon. Several actors, including Edward Norton, were interested in the role, but Carrey's audition, including an act with the bongo drums Kaufman used in his performances, helped him be cast[citation needed].

In 2000, Carrey re-teamed with the Farrelly Brothers (who had directed him in Dumb and Dumber) in their comedy, Me, Myself & Irene, about a state trooper with multiple personalities who romances a woman played by Renée Zellweger. The film grossed $24 million dollars on its opening weekend and $90 million by the end of its domestic run. Carrey has since continued to appear in successful comedies as well as more dramatic roles. His performance in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) earned high praise from critics, who once again incorrectly predicted that Carrey would receive an Oscar nomination, although the film won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and co-star Kate Winslet received a nomination for her performance.

Personal life

Carrey has been married twice, first to former actress and Comedy Store waitress Melissa Womer, with whom he has a daughter, Jane Erin Carrey (b. September 1987). They were married on March 28, 1987 and were officially divorced in late 1995. After his separation from Womer in 1994, Carrey began dating his Dumb and Dumber co-star Lauren Holly. They were married on September 23, 1996; the marriage lasted less than a year. Carrey dated actress Renée Zellweger, whom he met on the set of Me, Myself & Irene, although their relationship ended in a broken engagement in December 2000.
