Jim Carrey pulls off an amazing Matthew McConaughey impression on “The Late Show” Marvel Richter/YouTube

Jim Carrey, star of comedy hits like “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Dumb and Dumber”, as well as dramas such as “The Truman Show” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” is a master of impressions due to his ability to contort his face and affect his voice.

After a particularly great impression of Matthew McConaughey’s series of Lincoln ads in a 2014, a “Saturday Night Live” appearance had Carrey making fun of McConaughey’s mannerisms and almost perfectly imitating the “Dallas Buyer’s Club” star. Later, in an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” that same year, he showed off the impression again, and it’s hilarious.

“It’s real simple Dave,” Carrey says to host David Letterman. “All I gotta do is let go of the illusion that I exist, driving around in my Lincoln.”

Then Carrey talked about his very own “SNL” audition, and how he was sidetracked and preoccupied during it because there was a man outside who was on the verge of jumping off of 30 Rockefeller Plaza onto the street.

“I couldn’t concentrate because it was like ‘Is he gone?'” Carrey said.
