Memorable Moment: Jim Carrey on Letterman (1984)15 Feb 2012
By Priya Baboota (Web correspondent)
Jim Carrey was a stand-up guest at 'Late Night with David Letterman' in July 1984. He was going to perfom with Rodney Dangerfield in L.A on August 13th and 14th, 1984.
In his stand-up act, Jim told the audience that he learned how to communicate with street people by putting his one hand at the back of his neck and saying "Hi, it's windy today." He also did impressions of Sammy Davis Jr. with cross eyed look. Then he said "I like to go way back now!" and fell on his back.
He said that he spent most of his life staring at the mirror and did impressions of Clint Eastwood, Michael Landau smiling, James Dean, E.T., Charles Nelson as E.T.
After doing his stand-up act he sat down with David Letterman to chat for a few minutes. He said that his sitcom "The Duck Factory" was fun to do. It's not difficult for him to make faces. As an example he acted as an "Embarassment Salesman" and shook hands with Letterman. While shaking hands he fell down as if he was getting an electric shock from his hands.
He also told Letterman that he doesn't worry about injuring himself and getting older early. He also talked about his father that he is deaf with one year and he dips and laugh. He also teaches his older sister car with clutch.
