Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Rubber-faced comic actor whose manic energy and general goofiness have evoked comparisons to Jerry Lewis and made him one of the hottest stars in films today. After years of standup comedy performances on the comedy club circuit, and a very shortlived sitcom, "The Duck Factory" (1984), Carrey won featured roles in Once Bitten (1985), Peggy Sue Got Married (1986, as a loudmouthed classmate of Kathleen Turner's), The Dead Pool (1988), and Earth Girls Are Easy (1989) before attracting major attention for his strange characterizations on TV's "In Living Color" (1990-94), on which he was "the white guy." The surprise success of his debut starring vehicle, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), made him an overnight sensation and made moviegoers eager to see his subsequent 1994 releases, The Mask in which he became a human cartoon, and Dumb and Dumber which cast him as a lovable imbecile opposite Jeff Daniels. (The extraordinary success of these films inspired a video company to release a shelved 1991 comedy, High Strung in which he had a small, unbilled part.) He then played The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995). The 1992 TV movie Doing Time on Maple Drive which cast Carrey as an alcoholic, shows he could expand his range if he wanted to-and if his fans would permit.
