What with his recent embarrassing, harmful rants against vaccination, it can be easy to forget that Jim Carrey was once just a goofy guy who made us laugh. But he did—to the tune of millions of dollars at the box office—and one of his trademark funny moves was the pratfall, as Shawn Kohne points out in his supercut “Jim Carrey Falls Down.”

The video, which contains examples from Carrey’s early stand-up and breakout turn on In Living Color all the way up to last year’s Dumb and Dumber To, is four minutes of non-stop tumbling. This confirms two things: 1) The dude really likes pratfalls. And 2), As far as physical comedians go, he’s among the best to ever grace the screen.
