"I'm Dying Up Here" is a comedy series that airs on Showtime.

Set in L.A.'s celebrated, infamous stand-up comedy scene of the 1970s, during which the careers of many of the comedy superstars began, the series delves into the inspired and damaged psyches that are required to stand alone in front of an audience and make them laugh.

The cast includes Academy Award winner Melissa Leo ("The Fighter," "Louie"), Ari Graynor ("For a Good Time Call"), Clark Duke ("Hot Tub Time Machine," "The Office"),

Michael Angarano ("The Knick"), Andrew Santino ("Mixology"), RJ Cyler ("Me and Earl and the Dying Girl"), Al Madrigal ("About A Boy," "The Daily Show"), Erik Griffin ("Workaholics"), Stephen Guarino ("Happy Endings") and Jake Lacy ("Carol," "Girls).

The series follows up-and-coming comedians in L.A. in the 1970s, who are mentored by "Goldie" (Leo), a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist and nurtures her comedians with tough love. Graynor, Santino, Cyler, Griffin and Guarino star as the main stand-ups at the club. Angarano and Duke play ballsy young comedians from Boston who move to L.A. with the hopes of making it big.

Emmy Award nominee Alfred Molina ("Chocolat"), Sebastian Stan ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "The Martian"), Oscar nominee Robert Forster ("Jackie Brown"), Jon Daly ("Kroll Show"), Emmy nominee Dylan Baker ("The Good Wife"), Brianne Howey ("Horrible Bosses 2"), Ginger Gonzaga ("Togetherness") and Oscar nominee Cathy Moriarty ("Raging Bull") guest star.

Produced by Showtime, "I'm Dying Up Here" is written and executive produced by Dave Flebotte ("Masters of Sex," "Will & Grace," "Desperate Housewives"), and executive produced by Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar ("The Departed," "Semi-Pro"), and Christina Wayne ("Copper") for Endemol Shine Studios and Assembly Entertainment. The pilot was directed by Jonathan Levine ("50/50," "The Night Before"). The pilot is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by William Knoedelseder.
