I’m Dying Up Here premieres

on

New period dramedy about a group of struggling comics in early ’70s Los Angeles. Helmed by creator/writer David Felbottle (Masters of Sex) and loosely adapted on the nonfiction book by William Knoedelseder, this series is also executive produced by Jim Carrey.

The series stars Ari Graynor, Michael Angarano, Clarke Duke and Andrew Santino, as some of the fledgling young comics with big dreams and often equally large appetites for drugs, sex and alcohol.

The show attempts to chronicle the era that gave birth to the rise of modern stand-up.
