Showtime's I'm Dying Up Here: Season 2 — Official Trailer


added: Fri, Mar 23rd '18

Showtime has released the first teaser trailer for Season 2 of the 1970s stand-up-comedy-themed drama "I'm Dying Up Here," which is executive produced by Jim Carrey.

Boasting an ensemble cast that's led by Oscar-and-Emmy winner Melissa Leo with Ari Graynor, Clark Duke, Michael Angarano, RJ Cyler, Jake Lacy, and Erik Griffin, the series is based on journalist William Knoedelseder's best-selling non-fiction book of the same name, which recounted true stories from the golden era of '70s stand-up comedy.

Written and created by producer David Flebotte (Masters of Sex, Boardwalk Empire), the Showtime drama is a fictional story about a group of young, rising stand-up comedians coming up in the Hollywood club scene during the heyday of comedy.

"I'm Dying Up Here: Season 2" will premiere on Sunday, May 6th on Showtime.

I'M DYING UP HERE delves into the inspired, damaged and complicated psyches of a fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians mentored by Goldie (Melissa Leo), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist but nurtures her comedians with tough love. The series takes viewers behind the curtain of the comedy scene that birthed the careers of legends such as Richard Pryor, Robin Williams and David Letterman, showing there's truly no such thing as an easy laugh.
