I’m Dying Up Here on SHOWTIME: A Night with Cast & Creators
Sit down with executive producers Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar and cast members Ari Graynor, Al Madrigal, Erik Griffin, Andrew Santino, RJ Cyler and Clark Duke for a wide-ranging conversation about everything that went into making I’m Dying Up Here, the new highly anticipated one-hour SHOWTIME drama series.
Premiering Sunday, June 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME, the show explores L.A.’s famed ‘70s stand-up comedy scene, delving 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. This fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians is mentored by “Goldie,” a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. For Goldie and her crew, there’s truly no such thing as an easy laugh.
This conversation will no doubt prompt some nostalgic stories about the boom of the comedy club scene in the ‘70s, and reveal the inspiration behind the show’s must-see first season when we sit down with this panel on Thursday, July 27 at 9:30 p.m. at Maison Symphonique at Place des Arts.
