SHOWTIME® presents I’M DYING UP HERE, a new drama series that explores the struggles of “making it big” in the 1970’s L.A. comedy scene. Every night, a group of young, up-and-coming comedians wait their turn to perform at Goldie’s, the hottest stand-up club in Hollywood. But first they’ll have to win over club owner Goldie, who rules the Sunset Strip with an iron fist. For them, stand-up is a drug and they’re willing to sacrifice everything to get their fix. They brave the pain of sharing their innermost thoughts and darkest secrets, hoping that someone, anyone, will laugh. At Goldie’s, they have found new rivals, but they have also found family. When one of them makes it, they all make it and when they fail, they fail together. But if Johnny Carson’s couch is the Holy Grail, do they wait for Goldie to say, “You’re ready,” or fly blind and possibly miss out on their one shot at stardom? Don’t miss I’M DYING UP HERE, executive produced by Jim Carrey, premiering Sunday, June 4 at 10 PM ET/PT – only on SHOWTIME®.
