Jim Carrey may have just angered the beast with his tweet about Kim Kardashian West’s nude selfie. According to Perez Hilton, the 54-year-old comedian has tweeted his reaction to Kim’s recent nude pic that has triggered quite an uproar in social media.
But Jim Carrey’s reaction is somewhat unique compared to all other commenters. Carrey is the first high-profile celebrity who has said something about Kim’s… poop. However, while the comedian’s fans are just happy to see Jim Carrey’s signature never-getting-old sense of humor back on display, Kim is expected to hit back at Carrey, just like she recently did with Bette Midler, Chloe Grace Moretz and Piers Morgan, all of whom have criticized her nude selfie.

In the tweet, Jim Carrey thanked Kim for sharing with her fans where she “poops,” as well as what she “poops with.” “You must have very big poops!”
Thank you @KimKardashian for showing us where you poop, and what you poop with. You must have very big poops! ;^•

In February, thanks to Netflix, Jim Carrey’s fans had the opportunity to see their favorite comedian’s 2009 movie I Love You Phillip Morris, which was barely released, according to Metro.
However, those who have already seen the movie cannot figure out why the comedy, which is so funny and features Jim Carey’s classic rubber face work, got stuck at the production stage and almost didn’t get released. But according to Metro, the reason is “obvious.”
Apparently, state distributors weren’t sure that releasing I Love You Phillip Morris would be a good idea back in 2009, since the movie shows a prominent Hollywood celebrity (Jim Carey) acting as a gay man alongside other gay men, including showing gay sex scenes on screen. It seems there are those who thought American audiences were just not ready for the movie.
But Netflix now offers Jim Carey’s fans the chance to see one of the most hilarious performances by their favorite comedian. And while the story appears to be rather crazy and full of nonsense, it still makes fans appreciate how committed Carey is to making people laugh at all costs. The plot centers around Steven Russell, a criminal who escaped prison several times to be with his one true love portrayed by Ewan McGregor.

Meanwhile, there is finally more information about Jim Carrey’s upcoming dark comedy project that was picked up by Showtime earlier this year. According to Vulture, I’m Dying Up Here will be focused in the ’70s and the “birthplace of modern comedy,” the Comedy Story and The Laugh Factory.
And although there is no release date for Jim Carrey’s upcoming comedy yet, Showtime’s chef David Nevins decided to shed some light on the dark comedy in his latest interview with Vulture. While the show is based on William Knoedelseder’s non-fiction book I’m Dying Up Here, Nevins revealed that the series will be fictional.

When asked to share some info about the genesis of Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here, Nevins revealed that it was Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar who suggested to adapt Knoedelseder’s book into a TV series, which would tell the story about the ’70s comedy scene.
“I loved that scene. I dabbled in stand-up in the ’90s and I’ve always been in love with comedy. I thought it could really be a cool period piece. You see those times with music but you don’t see it in the comedy world.”
Nevins also revealed that although the series will be funny, it’ll still be a drama.
“It’s a drama infused with dark comedy rather than a comedy infused with drama.”
He also said that the team, including Jim Carrey, has been learning about that era, which is often called the “sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll era,” to touch upon fun as well as the psychology that drove comedians to success in the ’70s.
