I’m Dying Up Here
PREMIERE FX HD, Astro Ch 726, 11pm
Starring Academy Award-winning actress Melissa Leo, this comedy-drama series is set around 1970s comedy clubs in Los Angeles, way before the era of viral videos made becoming a comedy sensation a lot easier. Back in the day, would-be comics had to work the comedy club circuit, travelling everywhere there was an opportunity and pitting themselves against other equally ambitious comedians. The show focuses on Goldie (Leo) a comedy club owner who mentors a group of comics, doling out her signature tough love to help them get ahead in the notoriously competitive business.
