look less than he is.

6. They are usually spot on with their impersonations. The whole tone was just off.

10. I think it's because Carrey is just off

and hits that grating stage. I have NEVER thought he was the least bit humorous. He should go back to his painting.

9. No Carrey is a big Biden supporter. Here is some of his artwork :





An article about it: https://news.artnet.com/art-world/jim-carrey-done-painting-political-cartoons-now-hes-mangos-1766871


I really liked his Jeff Goldblum impersonation, not so much his Joe Biden.

11. I get that, I just think the casting was wrong on this one.

I like Jim Carrey, but not for this.

15. Don't enjoy it. TBF it's easier to satirize someone who is flawed at heart.

16. How many people are going to throw him under the bus

Look I don't like the impersonation myself but he's still a nice guy and hates Trump. I mean Jim Carrey this is how he acts he's always been over the top

17. Jim Carrey fan here

It wasn't that funny, but I'm hit or miss on SNL anyway. I will say Biden is difficult to skewer in the same way as Trump. If Carrey can't crack the code, then nobody can.

Baldwin always nails Trump but it's getting kind of old. Trump is a kind of cartoon character in real life, so the material writes itself.

It's the same as Will Ferrell's George W impression. Spot on. That was a lot easier than trying to ridicule Obama.

I can't prove it, but these are facts.

18. I didn't care for his impression of Joe...

He's too self deprecating in that character. I think Woody Harrelson did it best.

20. Yep.

I absolutely despise anything hes ever done really, except The Truman Show and some of his stuff on In Living Color. Hes one of those comedians who tries too hard and thinks hes a lot funnier than hes capable of being.

21. Carrey's been dead to me ever since he attacked Adam Schiff a couple years ago.

I missed SNL last night, did see his impersonation of Biden last week, was not impressed. But then again, as I mentioned, I'm biased.

22. Was it Jason Sudeikis who used to do it?

Whoever it was, he was a million times better than Carrey.

Carrey got the job because he wanted it, and he's Jim Carrey. He's just awful as Biden, and when Biden wins, we'll be subjected to him for four years.

Alec Baldwin's Trump is OK, but it sparkles because it pisses Trump off so much.

23. I didn't like it. Joe is very likeable. This guy was very much like a character he played in a movie

Don't recall the name but it had that smile, and was an ass, so he portrayed him as an evil ass clown which he is not. I really did not like it at all. Did enjoy the tRump character though. Pretty realistic.
