His family was Catholic and of part French Canadian ancestry (as the original surname was Carré).

After the family moved to Scarborough, Ontario when Jim Carrey was 14, he attended Blessed Trinity Catholic School in North York for two years, before enrolling at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, Scarborough's oldest high school for another year, and then briefly attended Northview Heights Secondary School for the remainder of his high school career (3 years in grade 10).

Jim Carrey lived in Burlington, Ontario, for eight years and attended Aldershot High School. In a Hamilton Spectator interview (February 2007), Carrey remarks that "if his career in show business hadn't panned out he would probably be working today in Hamilton, Ontario at the Dofasco steel mill."

When looking across the Burlington Bay towards Hamilton he could see the mills and thought "those were where the great jobs were". He already had experience working in a science testing facility in Richmond Hill, Ontario, and was somewhat resigned to that career path.

He starred as a stand up comedian and also appeared in many great movies.

At one time during his career, he wrote himself a check for $20 million dollars for his performance in a movie. His dream came to be.

Most amazing he talks about his philosophy of life, comedy and marriage.

Watch this amazing video from a master comic. He really is a painter...
