Jim Carrey knew his Saturday Night Live audition was doomed when he arrived at the studio as a page was contemplating suicide.
The Mask star made his mark on TV comedy sketch show In Living Color, but he tanked his SNL try out – and he reveals all the signs were there it was not going to go well.
“I got out at NBC in the (San Fernando) Valley and I was like, ‘Gosh, I hope this is a lucky day for me’,” he tells Lights Out host David Spade. “I walked out of my car, closed the door, and I heard, ‘Don’t do it! Don’t jump!’
“I looked up at the top of the NBC building and there was a page in a blue coat trying to get his nerve up, standing on the NBC logo trying to get his nerve up to jump off, and I went, ‘Not a good sign’.”
