Spike TV Bows Down to Legendary Funnyman Jim Carrey

To Be Crowned Funniest M.F. At 2011 "Guys Choice"

The Fifth Annual Event Premieres Friday, June 10 At 9 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, May 26, 2011 -- Spike TV will present comedy icon Jim Carrey with the Funniest M.F. award at this year's "Guys Choice" bash. Funniest M.F. is one of the night's premiere honors as previous winners include fellow standouts Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and most recently, Chris Rock. Taping Saturday, June 4th at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA, the fifth annual event premieres Friday, June 10 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

"When considering all the motherf***ers working today, we determined that Jim Carrey was by far the funniest of them all," said Casey Patterson, EVP, event production, talent and studio relations, Spike TV. "Jim Carrey is a comedic genius who has created some of the most iconic and indelible characters in film and TV. We're thrilled to be honoring him."

Jim Carrey began his illustrious career in 1990 as a cast member on FOX's sketch comedy show, "In Living Color" where he shined brightest as accident-prone safety inspector Fire Marshall Bill and masculine female bodybuilder Vera de Milo. In 1994, Carrey was cast as the lead character in the hugely successful "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," a role that launched him into stardom. Since then Carrey has won two Golden Globes, for his performances in "Man on the Moon" and "The Truman Show," and has starred in a countless number of memorable comedies including "Dumb and Dumber," "The Mask," "The Cable Guy," "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls," "Me, Myself and Irene," "Bruce Almighty," "Liar Liar," "Yes Man," "I Love You Phillip Morris," among others. Carrey can next be seen starring as Tom Popper in "Mr. Popper's Penguins," out in theaters June 17th.
