Jim Carrey always wants people to laugh.

On a recent appearance at the "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," the actor and comedian put on a full show for audience members.

Carrey made an elaborate entrance, accompanied by a New Orleans-style brass band while throwing gold confetti into the crowd.

Following the lavish intro, Colbert asked Carrey about how he prepares for roles, and whether his process differs for dramatic vs. comedic ones.

Carrey joked about his role in fan favorite "Dumb and Dumber," saying, "I spent 32 years as a total idiot."

Colbert then egged Carrey on to deliver some lines from his notorious 90s comedies.

The host first asked if Carrey could say "Do not go in there!", a famous line from his 1994 classic "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective."

"After years of honing my craft, there's so much more emotional nuance that I could bring to that moment," Carrey said before he recited the line like it was part of a musical number.

Carrey also recreated his "one in a million" line from "Dumb and Dumber," joking, "I failed to convey the nature of probability itself, and I should have had an accent."

The most satisfying dramatic rendition came when Carrey exclaimed "Somebody stop me!" from 1994's "The Mask."
