"I'm Dying Up Here" is based on the William Knoedelseder 2010 book of the same name that touched on the history of the Comedy Store. It centers around the careers of upcoming entertainers as they arrive in LA. Careers were born with the invitation to sit next to Johnny after a set on “The Tonight Show,” but unlike the vanquished HBO show the series doesn’t fixate on stand-ins for the famous names, Instead it centers on a group of young comedians.
"I wanted people to see the comedy world as it was and the extraordinary experience I was lucky enough to have," - Jim Carrey,
who serves as an exec producer, says of the Showtime original.
