Jim Carrey developing comedy for HBO
20 Jun 2008    

By Priya B (Web correspondent)

Jim Carrey is going to revisit his comic days in L.A. comedy clubs by co-creating and exec producing a half hour project for HBO.

The Grammy-nominated American stand-up comedian Lisa Lampanelli (nominated for - "Dirty Girl") is attached to star in this project. The untitled story revolves around a woman who inherits a comedy club in Los Angeles. Scribe Kario Salem will write the teleplay. The story is in its initial stages.

The central character is a Mitzi Shore type, a woman who unexpectedly becomes the owner of a comedy club and is forced to play a maternal role in the dysfunctional lives of the club's clutch of resident comics.

Carrey was in the late 1970s and early 1980s part of the influential wave of comics who got big career boosts by performing at Shore's famed Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip.
