This guy is a super funny dude. It's amazing how well he does and such. I wonder how many times he cracks up when filming scenes for his movies.
Also, why are there so many people, like Johnny Depp (don't get me wrong, he's a good actor), that are on this list AND the Top Ten WORST Actors list? - ethany
One of my favourite actors of all time! He can play very funny parts but also serious parts for example his role in "The Truman Show". And very Dumb but funny parts like "Dumb and Dumber. You can't get a funnier actor than Jim Carrey! - dragon13304
Okay what I think is that he should be at least number 2 because he is the most funniest person in 1000000000000 million YEARS! But he should still be at least number 2 but guess what I vote him 1000000000000000000 votes so he can never be beaten. GO JIM!
jim carrey is such a talented actor, he's hilarious and everybody loves him! if you dont then you've probably never seen any of his films... i think he deserves to be in the top ten - Jeheffiner
Cmon guys this guy is a legend in comedies
i agree that johnny depp and jack nicholson are also awesome actors but jim carrey not even on top 20? :/ - Ak3nator
Aside from the fact that he may be one of the most eccentric, naturally hilarious people in the world, he also proved that he is an amazing actor.
Jim takes comedy to another level never seen before. And even though comedy isn't the most popular genre you have to laugh once in a while
He could be a great actor if he would just stop making stupid films. I enjoy him in more serious roles. I do NOT find him that funny though.
NUMBER ONE! Watched me, myself, and irene last night :P - kriissii
He is hilarious! Why is he all the way at the bottom? Dumb and Dumber? Ace Ventura: Pet Detective? Liar Liar? Wow! Such funny movies. - Jrdnlwn
Jim Carrey is one of the funniest if not the funniest actors of all time. Ace Ventura and Liar Liar are comedy classics - DyslexicLuger88
You serious? 20.?
This quy is hiLLarious... Bruce ALmiqhty, Dumb and Dumber, Yesman, Ace Ventura...
best actors are the ones that can make you laugh. jim carrey, on many occasions, has caused me to wet myself. - MpBlaize
Jim is great! In his submission to virtually any character can not stop laughing. Maybe Ace Ventura? Famous!
Extremely original, creative, miscellanious and talented. He lefts least doubts as a very solid actor
Jim Carrey is the best actor next to Johnny Depp. In all of Jim's movies there are soo many laughs you cry!
a great actor is one who creats his own style for a character... nobody can do that better than jim carrey - Shynash21
Jim carrey wins because he can play any role and he's hilarious. Johnny depp is just plain out creepy
I love this actor so much and every film that he's is in, always makes me laugh, he's so weird it's funny.
He is one of the only actors that can genuinely make me laugh! You gotta love him! Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber ALL AWESOME! - bobbyboo123
People tend to see Carrey as just a funny man. But this guy can act. Take Eternal Sunshine or The Truman Show for example.
I think its pretty safe to say that no one could compare to him in the comedy category. How can he keep a straight face
I've never watched one of his movies that I haven't laughed so hard I fell out of a chair.
Oh man, the most funniest actor in all history! How ca you forget Bruce Almighty?
Very funny, but I would say there is a very specific kind of character he can act, so he's not a good actor.
