Showtime Cancels Dark Comedy ‘I’m Dying Up Here’

Low Traditional Ratings Was the Cause

Showtime has opted against a third season of dark comedy “I’m Dying Up Here,” executive produced by Jim Carrey. Debuting on June 4, 2017, “I’m Dying Up Here” explored the Los Angeles stand-up scene of the early 1970s as a group of young comedians attempted to become successful at Goldie’s comedy club and potentially gain a shot on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.”

Twenty episodes of “I’m Dying Up Here” aired in total, with the now final episode on July 8. Oscar winner Melissa Leo starred.
