The show starred Melissa Leo and followed a fictionalized group of comedians in LA in the ‘70s.

Other cast members included Ari Graynor, Clark Duke, Michael Angarano, RJ Cyler, Andrew Santino, Erik Griffin, Al Madrigal and Jake Lacy.

Despite the cancellation, Jim is continuing his relationship with Showtime as he stars in and executive produces their new series Kidding.

Several celebrities have announced they will no longer participate in pre-planned panels for the upcoming New Yorker Festival if former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon remains on the lineup.

Bannon, who was once the chairman of Breitbart News, is a featured speaker at the festival and many voices in Hollywood have spoken out against his inclusion.

Even Chelsea Clinton chimed in, tweeting, “For anyone who wonders what normalization of bigotry looks like, please look no further than Steve Bannon being invited by both @TheEconomist & @NewYorker to their respective events in #NYC a few weeks apart.”

Jim Carrey, Judd Apatow, and John Mulaney have all tweeted that they will not participate in the same lineup as Bannon.

Jim Carrey Explains Why He Took a Break From Hollywood

Jim Carrey is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 56-year-old comedian had to share with the mag…

On why he took time off from Hollywood: “I just didn’t want to be in the business anymore. I didn’t like what was happening, the corporations taking over and all that. And maybe it’s because I felt pulled toward a different type of creative outlet and 
I really liked the control of painting — of not having a committee in the way telling me what the idea must be to appeal to a four-quadrant whatever.”

On his anti-Trump art on Twitter: “I knew sooner or later I’d find a worthy way to use Twitter. My manager 
used to be like, ‘Don’t do stuff on there. You’re f*cking insane.’”

On why he doesn’t have direct access to his Twitter and has three people approve posts before posting: “When you’re in my position, I think it’s a really smart thing to have a buffer.”

Jim Carrey's Comedy Series 'Kidding' Debuts Trailer & Posters - Watch Now!

Jim Carrey‘s new comedy series Kidding has released its official trailer and posters!

The 56-year-old actor will star in the half-hour show, premiering on September 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Showtime announced at the 2018 Summer TCA Press Tour held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (August 6) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Kidding reunites Jim with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry, marking Jim‘s first series regular role in more than two decades.

It centers on “Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles (Jim), an icon of children’s television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him. But when this beloved personality’s family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairytale, fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: A kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.”

“Throughout the season, Jeff begins to push back against the limits of the well-oiled machine that is ‘Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time,’ and of his executive producer, Seb (Frank Langella). Seb fears Jeff’s mental state could ruin the branding empire they’ve built, and thus begins preparing the show for a life after Jeff, while Deirdre (Catherine Keener), the head puppet maker, grapples with her own personal and professional life issues.”

Judy Greer stars as Jeff’s estranged wife, and their son is played by Cole Allen. Guest stars include Justin Kirk, Ginger Gonzag, and Tara Lipinski.

Jim, along with Jason Bateman, is also an executive producer.
