Jim Carrey Biography

Jim Carrey is an award-winning actor who has been honored for both his dramatic and comedic work. He won a Golden Globe Award, for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, for the title role in Peter Weir’s The Truman Show. Jim won his second Golden Globe, for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, for his portrayal of comedian Andy Kaufman in Milos Forman’s Man on the Moon. Over the course of his career, Carrey has also been recognized numerous times by the MTV Movie Awards, People’s Choice Awards, and Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

Carrey can be seen starring in and executive producing the Showtime series Kidding. The series follows the story of Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television, who also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. When his family begins to implode, he finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. Carrey can also be seen in the critically acclaimed documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton on Netflix. The documentary is a behind the scenes look at Carrey’s award-winning performance in Man on the Moon. In July 2017 Carrey was awarded the Generation Award at the Just For Laughs Festival.

Carrey’s other recent projects include starring as President Joe Biden in several 2020 episodes of Saturday Night Live, and starring as Dr. Robotnik in the 2020 film, Sonic the Hedgehog.

In November 2014, the long-awaited sequel Dumb and Dumber To debuted at number one at the box office, with Carrey reprising his role as Lloyd Christmas. Twenty years after Lloyd and Harry set out on their first adventure, they head out in search of one of their long lost children in the hope of gaining a new kidney.

Carrey was awarded an honorary doctorate in May 2014 from officials at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. In his commencement speech, Carrey famously told graduates, "you can fail at what you don't love, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love."

On September 24, 2013, Carrey released his first children’s book, How Roland Rolls. The book received the Gelett Burgess Award which honors books created especially for children. In addition to the book, a 4 song EP with songs written and performed by Carrey and his daughter Jane was released on iTunes as well as an enhanced e-book version. In 2020, Carrey released his New York Times Bestselling book, Memoirs and Misinformation: A Novel.

Carrey’s film credits include the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone opposite Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi, the family comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and director Robert Zemekis’ adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale, A Christmas Carol, in which Carrey portrayed Ebenezer Scrooge, as well as the three ghosts that haunt him. He also starred in I Love You Phillip Morris, a dark comedy written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and director Peyton Reed’s romantic comedy Yes Man opposite Zooey Deschanel.

Previously, Carrey lent his voice to the title character of the CGI-animated film version of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! which was a blockbuster hit. He also starred opposite Virginia Madsen in the psychological thriller The Number 23, directed by Joel Schumacher; starred opposite Tea Leoni in the hit 2005 comedy Fun with Dick and Jane, directed by Dean Parisot and produced by Brian Grazer; Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events based on the children’s book series by Daniel Handler; as well as the critically acclaimed drama Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, for which Jim received Golden Globe and BAFTA Award nominations for Best Actor.

In 2003, Carrey starred in the hugely successful comedy Bruce Almighty, which was one of the highest-grossing films of the year. Bruce Almighty also marked his third successful collaboration with director Tom Shadyac, who had earlier directed him in the hit comedies Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Liar, Liar, for which Jim was nominated for a Golden Globe. In 2001, he starred in The Majestic, and in 2000, Carrey had the distinction of starring in the year’s highest-grossing film, Dr. Seuss’ classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. His performance as the Grinch brought him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. That summer, Carrey also appeared in the Farrelly brothers’ comedy Me, Myself & Irene. In 2000, he was named “Male Star of the Year” at ShoWest.

Carrey was previously named the ShoWest Comedy Star of the Year in 1995 for his breakout roles in the comedy hits Dumb & Dumber, his first film for writers/directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Mask, for which Carrey received his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. He was later Golden Globe-nominated for his work in 1997’s hit film Liar, Liar.

Born in Newmarket, Ontario, Carrey began his career as a stand-up comic while still in his teens. Moving to Los Angeles at the age of 19, he immediately became a regular at Mitzi Shore’s Comedy Store, attracting the attention of comedy legend Rodney Dangerfield. Dangerfield was so impressed with the young comic that they began touring together.

In 1982, he was cast on the NBC series The Duck Factory. The next year he landed his first lead film role in the feature Once Bitten , starring Lauren Hutton. He followed that with roles in Francis Ford Coppola’s Peggy Sue Got Married and the comedy Earth Girls Are Easy, with Geena Davis. In 1988, Carrey made a brief, but memorable, appearance as Johnny Squares, the self-destructive rock star, in the Clint Eastwood film The Dead Pool.

In 1990, Carrey joined the cast of Fox Television’s ensemble comedy hitIn Living Color. In November 1991, his first Showtime Special, Jim Carrey’s Unnatural Act, premiered to rave reviews. He followed with a starring role as an alcoholic trying to cope with life in the Emmy-nominated telefilm Doing Time on Maple Drive.

In 1994, after several successful seasons on In Living Color, Carrey gained international attention when he starred in the title role of the smash hit comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. His subsequent film credits include the sequel, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, the dual role of Riddler/Dr. Edward Nygma in Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever, and Cable Guy, directed by Ben Stiller.
