Jim Carrey Sang Covers at Arlene’s Grocery Friday Night [Video]
It turned out to be a celebrity-heavy weekend here on the Lower East Side. Not only did Lady Gaga chill with fans at Welcome to the Johnson’s, but Jim Carrey decided to perform a few songs at seminal neighborhood rock venue Arlene’s Grocery.

Word broke Saturday afternoon that Mr. Fire Marshall Bill had crashed Arlene’s the night before, and jammed out to a trio of classics. He tackled “Creep” (Radiohead), “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” (Smashing Pumpkins), and “I Started a Joke” (Bee Gees), while also sprinkling in some stand-up fare between numbers.
Some may chalk up this publicity stunt as another example of Carrey’s alleged mid-life crisis (i.e. fawning over Emma Stone and spray-painting his West Village house). Whatever the case may be, though, it’s still pretty damn awesome.
