About Jim Carrey

With his wacky facial expressions and humor, comedian Jim Carrey became one of the most popular actors in the 1990s. Getting his start starring on 'Saturday Night Live,' Carrey starred in over-the-top comedies as some of the most famous and off-the-rocker characters in history. From 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' and 'Dumb and Dumber' to 'The Cable Guy' and 'The Truman Show,' Carrey's physical comedy, contorted facial expressions, and spot-on comedic timing put him above the rest of the comedians in Hollywood.

Carrey's performance in 2009's 'A Christmas Carol' placed him in the running for a Kid's Choice Award for Favorite Voice in an Animated Movie. On January 8, 2010, Carrey hosted 'Saturday Night Live' with musical guest The Black Keys. It was the highest-rated and most popular episode since Betty White and Jay-Z appeared on 'SNL' in May 2010.
