Jim Carrey is one of the most recognizable faces in the comedy genre of the entertainment history. His memorable roles in ‘Liar Liar’, ‘Dumb and Dumber’, ‘The Mask’, ‘Man On The Moon’ and many others gained him popularity, the love of the fans and numerous awards and nominations for best comedian actor. The youngest of four children, Carrey was born in Ontario, Canada and officially received American citizenship in 2004.
A little known fact about Carrey is that he aspired to become a professional comedian performer from a very early age. Famous for the movements of his rubbery body complemented by an arsenal of peculiar facial expressions, Jim used to perform live stand-up comedy shows for his classmates in junior high.
He was such a natural born performer that at one point of his life he used to wear tap shoes around the house. His family suffered a period of financial hardship and Jim used to cheer up his parents by performing a funny dance routine for them, sometimes even in the middle of the night.
Currently, Jim Carrey is actively engaged in the production of the sequel of the fan favorite movie “Dumb and Dumber 2” scheduled for release in 2014.
