Jim’s parents were far from wealthy, and even in his school years the boy had to work and help his mother and father. His debut as a comedian failed — he was 15 years old and tried his luck on the stage of a local stand up comedy club. However, he tried again two years later — and was successful. Then Jim decided to get himself on the silver screen, and moved to LA where he took up any opportunity to shoot, and auditioned for everything he could. Soon he got the leading role in Ace Ventura, a low-cost comedy. The interesting fact here is that many famous actors declined this particular role, but it was this character that made Jim Carrey a star.
