Marc Maron must be on fire recently after getting Jerry Seinfeld on his podcast recently, considered by many to be the great white whale he just got Jim Carrey on. Great interview with a lot of detail of how Carrey started out in comedy in the 70s.
Jim Carrey just wrote his first novel, a semi-autobiographical look at show business and an examination of persona. It makes sense because Jim has been playing with persona during his entire career in show business. Jim talks with Marc about his days doing stand-up in Canada, LA and Las Vegas, and the late night realization that forced him to change his act and create the public image that launched him to superstardom. They also talk about In Living Color, Ace Ventura, Rodney Dangerfield, Sam Kinison, and holding out hope for the future.
