Bit by bit one of our favourite and wackiest comedians Jim Carrey is reappearing on our televisions.
Last week we posted about the mini doc he released about his love for art. You can read more about that here.
Now, Carrey is re-uniting with director Michael Gondry ( Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) to star in Showtime dark comedy Kidding. In the half-hour dark comedy he will play Jeff, the icon of a kids tv, known as Mr. Pickles. He is the positive role model beacon of kindness for those around him. When things seem too good to be true everything and his family start going downhill. It’s both hilarious and heartbreaking.
Kidding was created/written by Dave Holstein (Weeds, Raising Hope) as Michel Gondry will direct all 10 episodes of the first season. This show deepens Carrey’s partnership with Showtime who also serves as the executive producer of I’m Dying Up Here which just picked up a season 2 renewal.
