Jim Carrey starring in "Kidding"

Hey JCO,

It's wonderful that Jim's gonna be back on TV again. I'll be looking forward into seeing the "Kidding" as well as "I'm Dying Up Here".
From what I've read on "Kidding", it sounds more like an half-hour drma than a half-hour comedy. But I think it could be categorized as a comedy/drama. That's what I think.

Can I be honest? My first reaction was anything but enthusiastic when I learned he was going to do a half hour comedy show. Why? Let's be honest, A-list movie stars going back to TV for 30 minutes of sitcom, 9 out of 10 times that's not a good sign. Robin Williams doing The Crazy Ones was also labeled as the end of the big Robin Williams. It crashed and he was too good for it, imo. So ... This Kidding-news. Wasn't digging the idea.

Then I saw who's involved and it changed everything. :) A new Gondry team-up? Yeah! And I really like the premise too. It can offer a lot of range for Jim as an actor. I guess it will be a bit quirky in a good way, not your typical Carrey at all and I do like the sound of that.

Steve, my reaction was exactly the same :wink: First I was like "Comedy series? Come on, I was expecting an Oscar movie!" Then I clicked on the link and "Ohh, Michel Gondry? That's gonna be goood!!!"

Now I can't wait 8)

i'm completely open minded about anything he does now but a comedy show will give him the chance to explore new characters and ideas :D As long as he enjoys the process and has fun who cares if it's on TV...
