“Nick Cage loves it, he’s lost his mind. He thought it was great, ”Carrey said. “He was like ‘go ahead!’ Immediately he was honored by the whole process. Joe Dangerfield sent me lovely emails about how much he loved him and how much Rodney Dangerfield would have loved him. ”

Maher then read a passage from the book about Kanye West, pointing out that it was not far from the rapper’s recent rants.

“At the end, Kanye West says, ‘You don’t need to be afraid. They speak to me in a supernatural voice. I am one with their jam. And I’m not sure he hasn’t said that this week!

“It’s a very strange thing where the parody becomes very parallel to the reality,” Carrey said. “But we have to mark these things, you know. [Kanye West] is one of the big characters in our zeitgeist right now and wanted there to be a place. It doesn’t matter what he does. I can not understand. ”

West recently made headlines for a presidential campaign in which he spoke about his take on abortion, among other things. He has previously admitted to being bipolar and his wife, Kim Kardashian, has requested empathy while dealing with her husband’s mental health.
