|Born in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada in 1962, Carrey found his calling at an early age, performing in front of classmates in elementary school -- and making them laugh. At age 15 he began performing at Yuk Yuk's, a famous Toronto comedy club, and continued performing in clubs all over Canada until age 19, when he packed his bags and moved to Los Angeles. Soon after becoming a regular at Mitzi Shore's Comedy Store, he was put on tour by comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who had caught his act and was impressed by the young talent.|
