  1. Fun fact: Ace Ventura, Dumb & Dumber, and The Mask all came out in 1994. He was also on the cast of In Living Color then.

  2. Jim Carrey is a grand father now. Imagine having him as your grandfather. My parents would be grounding him instead of me

  3. I remember when he used to be funny. Back before he got into politics on social media. Stick to what your good at Jim.

  4. It's so sad to think the funniest people on the planet are the ones that suffer from depression, and most don't even know. I hope Jim Carrey no longer does as he has openly expressed his depression….But to think we lost Robin Williams to depression, I couldn't imagine losing someone like Jim Carrey also. What an amazing, unique, memorable man.

  5. Jim Carry – Your art of acting is immortal. Thank you for making this a richer, deeper, more thoughtful, more meaningful, broader, more sophisticated and most phenomenal world of acting! Be blessed in your soul!

  6. He used to be funny until he got Trump Derangement Syndrome and then he completely lost it. I threw his movies in the trash. This guy is a has been prune that should go back to canada.

  7. There's no human that can make me laugh harder than Jim! "Dumb and dumber" is the movie I've re-watched like 14 times – the record for ANY movie for me!

  8. Yeah he's a funny guy, but it's all an act and he craves attention.
    I fear he will end up like Robin Williams in the end.

  9. Holy cow!! Wasn’t everyone trashing him for losing his mind not too long ago!? I hope the true Jim is truly back! I was one of his biggest fans.

  10. Jim Carrey the Galactic Sith Empire has your back, you are my favorite comedian none other is as funny…..

  11. I want this Jim Carrey back though…..

  12. Probably overthinking it, but when Jim made the joke about having seven brothers, I remembered that Stephen actually did have seven brothers and lost two of them in an accident…Stephen didn't seem humored at that moment but he kept going.

  13. Complete wacko. I can’t stand him, he’s too much like Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters. All 3 have mental issues.

  14. Jim Carrey should go to David Lynch about a new mask movie.

    I honestly feel like they would do a great job together.

    They should includeRyan Reynolds in this move.

  15. Like a year ago or maybe a little more than that, he was throwing some truths about media and some philosophical shit about existance, now he seems like blindfolded again like part of the mainstream, perhaps he is "sedated" again.
