Jim Carrey is a comedian and an actor. He was born and lived for much of his childhood in Ontario, Canada. As he entered young adulthood, he started to do stand up comedy in Toronto clubs. Later on, he moved to Los Angeles, California. While he was living in Los Angeles, Rodney Dangerfield watched his skit at a comedy store and selected Carrey on as an opening act.

Carrey first ascended to stardom in 1990 when he played the Warner Brothers comedy show,“In Living Color”. He quickly became well-known for his role as the fire marshal, Bill. Carey stayed on this popular show until it abruptly ended in 1995. Before the show drew to an end, his popular movie “Ace Venture Pet Detective” entered the theaters. This gave him the big break he needed to become a household name. During the same year, Jim Carrey starred in “The Mask” and “Dumb And Dumber”. Both of these comedy films were extremely popular and put Carrey among the top echelon of actors. The very next movie that Jim played in, made him $20 million.
