Stan has announced that they will release a ‘sneak peek’ of the new season of I’M DYING UP HERE this Friday April 20, with new episodes dropping weekly from Monday May 14, same day as the U.S.
Created and executive produced by Dave Flebotte and executive produced by Golden Globe® winner Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar, the fictional I’M DYING UP HERE explores L.A.’s famed ’70s stand-up comedy scene, with an ensemble cast led by Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and Ari Graynor.
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 (Leo), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist but nurtures her comedians with tough love.
Based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder, I’M DYING UP HERE 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 cast includes 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 Emmy® winner Brad Garrett will also recur in season-long arcs.
I’M DYING UP HERE is the latest show to come exclusively to Stan as part of its long-term partnership with SHOWTIME. Other shows include the brand-new seasons of BILLIONS and THE CIRCUS, both currently streaming; and Ben Stiller’s ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA which will premiere later this year.
Sneak Peek of the brand new season of I'M DYING UP HERE will premiere exclusively on Stan on April 20 with new episodes from May 14, same day as the U.S.
Season 1 is currently streaming exclusively on Stan
