Transcript of Biography on Jim Carrey

The reason I chose to research Jim Carrey for my biography assignment is because when I was seven or eight years old, he inspired me to become a comedian by watching his funny movies. His acting gave me ideas on how to be funny and tell jokes, to my family, my relatives, and maybe my friends. He has multiple strategies and techniques in the way he delivers his comedy. Some of his movies that I have seen are are The Mask (1994), Bruce Almighty (2003), Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011), and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004). But the movie that I like the most is The Mask. The reason why I like this movie the most is because of his facial expressions, the tone of his voice, and his movements. He is also a very very funny entertainer and always makes everyone laugh.

Timeline
I mentioned earlier, some of the movies that I've watched. The Mask is my favourite because he was a funny insane cartoon character when he puts on the mask at night, and his eyeballs would get stuck on the pavement when he falls from a building, when the poice say "FREEZE!" he becomes frozen, literaly becomes frozen with ice all around him, his accents, and his expressions are hilarious.

Funniest quote.
Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they're eating sandwiches.
Acting related quote
I praticed making faces in the mirror and it would drive my mother crazy. She used to scare me by saying that I was going to see the devil if I kept looking in the mirror. That fascinated me even more, of course.
