From Executive Producer Jim Carrey comes, this summer, I’m Dying Up Here, a new one-hour Showtime drama series exploring L.A.’s famed 1970s stand-up comedy scene.
The show, based on William Knoedelseder’s book of the same name and produced by Showtime, revolves around a fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians mentored by a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist.
The cast includes Academy Award winner Melissa Leo, Michael Angarano, Ari Graynor, Andrew Santino, Clark Duke, Jake Lacy, and guest stars including Stephen Guarino, Jon Daly, Ginger Gonzaga, Dylan Baker, Robert Forster, Sebastian Stan, Alfred Molina, and others.
The official trailer for the series features the track “Blinded by the Light” by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band.
