He has received two Golden Globe Awards and has also been nominated on four occasions. Carrey began comedy in 1979, performing at Yuk Yuk’s in Toronto, Ontario. Carrey, long interested in film and television, developed a close friendship with comedian Damon Wayans, which landed him a role in the sketch comedy hit in Living Color, in which he portrayed various characters during the show’s 1990 season. His mother was of French,  Irish,  and Scottish descent and his father was of French Canadian ancestry (the family’s original surname was Carré). Carrey lived in Burlington, Ontario, for eight years and attended Aldershot High School, where he once opened for 1980s new wave band Spoons. One reviewer in the Toronto Star raved that Carrey was “a genuine star coming to life.” in the early 1980s, Carrey moved to Los Angeles and started working at The Comedy Store, where he was noticed by comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who signed the young comedian to open Dangerfield’s tour performances. Carrey was not selected for the position (although he did host the show in May 1996, and again in January 2011). Both films were successful at the box office and earned Carrey multi-million-dollar paychecks.
