Jim Carrey got his big break in 1990, when he landed a role on the hip new sketch comedy show in Living Color which boasted a cast of African-Americans and Carrey. the sole white guy. During the sketch. Carrey perfected many characters. most notoriously Fire Marshal Bill who always went up in a blaze. The sketch was yanked when critics claimed that it encouraged kids to play with fire. The controversy put Carrey's name in the headlines for the first time.

1990年,金·凯利开始走红,当时他得到了一个在嬉皮士新短喜剧中扮演角色的机会.这部名为《跳动的色彩》的剧目的演员包括一组美国黑人和唯一的白人小伙子凯利。剧中,凯利完美地扮演了许多角色.最令人津津乐道的就是《带火的元帅比尔》,他总是身上冒火。但是该剧受到了猛烈的抨击,批评家宣称这会促使孩子们纵火。而这次评论使得凯利的大名首次登在头版头条。

He broke into feature films. and into the collective unconscious of the world. in one single successful year, 1994 First there was Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. a surprise hit that show Carrey's now signature wacky style. Next came The Mask, a role that seemed tailor-made for him and was a hit with audiences. As if he hadn't made an impression yet. there was still Dumb and Dumber which was released during the holiday season and ended up on top of the box office. Jim Carrey is in the limelight now and he hasn't looked back since.

1994年,在他成功的一年中,他开始出演电影长片,并不知不觉成了圈内人士。先有艾丝·温图拉的《宠物侦探》,一部展示凯利特有的古怪风格的叫座影片。接下来是《面具》,这像是一个专为他置身定做的角色,观众反响强烈。然而他仿佛觉得人们对他的印象还不够深,假期推出的《装聋作哑》在放映结束时,雄踞票房首位。金·凯利如今成了焦点人物,此后便一发不可收。
