The second season of I’m Dying Up Here will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday August 7th at 10:10pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.
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, 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 series is based on the William Knoedelseder book of the same name and stars 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 Brad Garrett. The show’s second season explores what happens once you get what you thought you wanted. What happens after Carson, after you land a role on a sitcom, when you get agents, opportunities, a comedy album, commercials, road gigs, love? Which relationships – which individuals – can survive success?
