I’m Dying Up Here

Streaming now on Crave


Set in LA’s famed ‘70s stand-up comedy scene, I’M DYING UP HERE delves into the inspired, damaged, and complicated psyches of those who stand alone in front of an audience “dying” for fame, fortune, and, with any luck, a shot on Johnny Carson. This fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians is mentored by Goldie (Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo, The Fighter, TREME), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. The series is created and executive produced by Dave Flebotte and executive produced by Golden Globe® winner Jim Carrey, Michael Aguilar, and Christina Wayne. Also starring Ari Graynor (Bad Teacher), Michael Angarano (THE KNICK), Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine), Andrew Santino (Mixology), Erik Griffin (WORKAHOLICS), RJ Cyler (Power Rangers), Al Madrigal (THE DAILY SHOW) and Jake Lacy (Obvious Child) as part of a large ensemble cast. The series is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder. The pilot was written by Flebotte and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies).
