LOS ANGELES – March 23, 2018 – SHOWTIME has released the trailer for the second season of I’M DYING UP HERE. Created and executive produced by Dave Flebotte and executive produced by Golden Globe(R) winner Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar, the fictional I’M DYING UP HERE explores L.A.’s famed ’70s stand-up comedy scene, with an ensemble cast led by Academy Award(R) winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and Ari Graynor. The 10-episode season of I’M DYING UP HERE will premiere on Sunday, May 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
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 (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. The cast includes Melissa Leo, Ari Graynor, Clark Duke, Michael Angarano, RJ Cyler, Andrew Santino, Erik Griffin, Al Madrigal and Jake Lacy. Jon Daly, Nicole Ari Parker, Xosha Roquemore, Stefania LaVie Owen and Emmy(R) winner Brad Garrett will also recur in season-long arcs. Produced by SHOWTIME, I’M DYING UP HERE is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder. The 10-episode second season goes into production this month in Los Angeles. Flebotte, Carrey, Aguilar, Christina Wayne (Assembly Entertainment), Cindy Chupack, Adam Davidson and Endemol Shine Studios serve as executive producers on season two.
