• Dave Letterman Gets an Ebola Test…From Jim Carrey

    Jim Carrey has definitely seen funnier days, but it would appear he’s attempting to get back into the game. He hasn’t starred in a decent movie since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind way back in 2004, and before that, 1999’s Man on the Moon. Will he be able to mount a comeback? Eh, don’t count on it.

    The last time we heard from the former Ace Ventura star, he was busy releasing a bizarrely unfunny music video for Funny or Die that blasted Republicans, the late Charlton Heston, and the NRA on guns. Shortly after that, he disowned his own role in the movie Kick-Ass 2 because of the film’s gratuitous violence post-Sandy Hook. And unless I’m forgetting something, we haven’t really heard much of anything from Jim and his downer persona since then.

    Well, the once funny actor has now returned to the well for a sequel to Dumb and Dumber that looks downright terrible from the trailer. It hits theaters in about two weeks, so he has already begun a press tour. And last night on Letterman, Jim decided to administer an Ebola test to the Late Show host. Wackiness ensued, but YMMV on how entertaining it actually was.

    Fox has history in broadcasting that spans two decades. From his early days as an FM host and club DJ in the mid-90′s to his later experiences in political talk radio, he has always had a knack for combining topical news with his love for popular culture. Those experiences culminated in his position as executive producer for several radio shows featured in the TALKERS Heavy 100. Originally from New York, Fox has made the great pilgrimage down to sunny south Florida.
