I’m Dying Up Here series from Showtime gets a new trailer
Showtime has released a new trailer for the I’m Dying Up Here series about the stand-up scene in the 1970s. The series is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder. The pilot was directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) and written by Dave Flebotte and is produced by Jim Carrey, Michael Aguilar and Christina Wayne.
The I’m Dying Up Here series explores L.A.’s famed ’70s stand-up comedy scene and stars Academy Award winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Treme), 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 I’m Dying Up Here series 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” (Leo), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. For Goldie and her crew, there’s truly no such thing as an easy laugh. Recurring guest stars include Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings), Brianne Howey (Horrible Bosses 2), Jon Daly (Kroll Show) and Ginger Gonzaga (Togetherness). Guest stars include Emmy(R) nominee Dylan Baker (The Good Wife), Oscar nominee Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Oscar nominee Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull), With Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Martian) and Emmy nominee Alfred Molina (Chocolat).
