10 Great Clips from when Jim Carrey Used to be Funny

Clinton Global Initiative Brings Business And World Leaders Together

Can someone please tell me what happened to Jim Carrey? Oh right, he got older. He’s been in relationships, has kids, etc etc. Think Adam Sandler. Still though, I’m pretty sure the last time I remember seeing Carrey be even remotely funny in a movie was in Bruce Almighty, and maybe Yes Man. And I must say that’s really pushing it because in the grand scheme of things, he wasn’t really funny at all in those flicks compared to his older days. I miss the days of In Living Color and Ace Ventura.

And it’s not just shows or movies. He’s not nearly as off the wall or funny in interviews anymore. Sure he wore a woman’s bathing suit on the beach one day a few years back, but come on. It’s certainly not vintage Carrey. So wherever the real Jim Carrey is, I miss you buddy. Please come back and do an Ace Ventura III. And do it right. These videos are a tribute to the old, real Jim Carrey.

Ace Ventura Tank Scene

It’s not so much the overall scenes in Ace Ventura. It’s every single time he speaks that he’s funny. I feel like I picked up on a new funny thing like 100 times over from this flick. Carrey at his best.

Dumb and Dumber

I think any scene would have done just fine here.

Liar Liar

I think this is when he was kind of losing it, but still this movie had some funny parts. These were probably the funniest.

Ace Ventura 2 – The Monopoly Guy

Vanilla Ice

An excellent recurring role on what I consider to be one of the best sketch comedy shows ever.

Fire Marshall Bill

Read comment up above.

The Juice Man

Just watch his face the entire time. Impossible not to laugh.

Sammy Davis

This is unreal and actually quite disturbing.

Environmental Guy

Man is this funny. I don’t think I even saw this when the real show was on.

Pee Wee Herman

Listen to the audience. They’re baffled at how good this impression is.
