Jim Carrey is a Canadian-American actor and comedian with a net worth of $150 million. Carrey was born and raised in Ontario, Canada, and got his professional start doing stand-up in Toronto comedy clubs. He later moved to Los Angeles, where Rodney Dangerfield saw him perform at The Comedy Store and signed him as an opening act. Carrey's first taste of stardom came in 1990 on the Wayans brothers' sketch comedy show In Living Color, where he was best known for his role as the masochistic and accident-prone Fire Marshal Bill.
Carrey remained on In Living Color until it ended in 1995, but shortly before its cancellation, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective hit theaters, making him a household name overnight. The same year, he starred in The Mask and Dumb and Dumber, both of which were box-office hits; for his next film, The Cable Guy, he earned $20 million, setting a salary record among comic actors. Carrey's other notable comedic vehicles include Liar, Liar, Bruce Almighty, Me, Myself, and Irene, and Yes Man, though he has also appeared in a number of dramas and dramedies, including The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Majestic, Man on the Moon, and the thriller The Number 23. Carrey has been married twice, and has been dating actress Jenny McCarthy since 2005.
