BIOGRAPHY

Jim Carrey was bornon 17 January 1962 in Newmarket, Canadian, American, is Actor. If Jim Carrey, the famous comic actor, had taken a beating after being rejected as a performer the first few times, we would not have had great movies like 'Bruce Almighty' and 'The Truman Show'. Faced with dire poverty in his childhood, this brilliant entertainer was unable to complete school, and was forced to fend for his family. His only form of practice was at home, when he would try cheering up his mother in time of economic calamity. His first performance was at the comedy club of 'Yuk Yuk's', where he was rebuffed by the audience. This however, did not undermine the young lad's confidence, and he went on to prove to the world, that he had talent. With splendid comic performances in films like 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective', 'The Mask', 'Dumb and Dumber', 'Liar Liar', and 'Me, Myself & Irene', he carved a niche for himself in the live action comedy genre of movies. Gradually, he began acting in more serious movies, bagging prestigious honours for his acts in the films, 'The Truman Show', 'Man on the Moon', and 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'. In the last decade this celebrated star was included in the 'Canadian Walk of Fame' for his cinematic achievements
