Memorable Moment: Jim Carrey Hosting the U-Knows
04 Mar 2012    

By Lucas Allen (Web correspondent)

On April 2nd 1984, Jim Carrey hosted the U-Know Awards (later renamed the CASBYS from a voting contest), a music awards show honoring some of the hottest acts in Canada. This event was held at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Ontario. The award show was created by David Marsden from the radio network CFNY, which is currently branded 102.1 The Edge in Toronto. The year’s awards show includes such notable acts as the group Men Without Hats (who received Video and Single of the Year Awards for their only hit The Safety Dance) and rocker Billy Idol. To this day, it remains as the only awards show Jim has ever hosted.
