Guess it really was dying up there.
Showtime has canceled its Jim Carrey-produced stand up comedy series, I'm Dying Up Here, after two seasons on the pay cable network, Deadline reports.
I'm Dying Up Herewas created by David Flebotte and produced by Carrey. It was based on a book of the same name from William Knoedelseder and sought to tell the under-told story of the birth of the stand-up comedy scene in 1970s Los Angeles. The show followed a group of young comedians headlined by young comedic actors Clark Duke and Michael Angarano as they work the comedy club circuit with hopes of getting their big break on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show.
Notably, Oscar-winning actress Melissa Leo portrayed comedy club owner Goldie Herschlag, a character loosely based on real life comedy club titan Mitzi Shore.
