Hi Boys and Girls!
It’s someone’s special day today…..that’s right, join me in wishing Jim Carrey a special Happy Birthday!
Jim of course is originally Canadian, but we’ll forgive him as he used to date Playboy Model Jenny McCarthy and received US citizenship back in 2004.
One of the biggest comedians of his time, Jim moved to LA aged 17 to begin work at the Comedy Store. By 1996 he was paid $20 million for the Cable Guy, directed by Ben Stiller….at the time this was the highest ever amount paid to a comedian….go go Jim!!!
