Showtime’s one-hour series I’m Dying Up Here will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday August 16th at 10:10pm, it has been announced.
I’m Dying Up Here is set in L.A.’s celebrated, infamous stand-up comedy scene of the 1970s, during which the careers of most of today’s comedy superstars began. The 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.
I’m Dying Up Here is based on the William Knoedelseder book of the same name and stars Melissa Leo (Wayward Pines, Treme), Ari Graynor (Bad Teacher), Michael Angarano (The Knick), Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine), Andrew Santino (Mixology), Erik Griffin (Workaholics), RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), Al Madrigal (The Daily Show), and Jake Lacy (Obvious Child).
