I’M DY­ING UP HERE STREAM­ING NOW, STAN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

RE­MEM­BER 2010 Os­car win­ner Melissa Leo, who took home a golden stat­uette for her un­for­get­table per­for­mance in The

Fighter? Well, she’s back play­ing an­other tough broad, Goldie (pic­tured), the owner of a Los An­ge­les com­edy club in the 1970s. It’s all bell bot­toms and retro car­pet­ing, with up-and-com­ers kow­tow­ing to her for a start on her star-mak­ing stage. With Jim Car­rey as ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, it tells the story of strug­gling comics and how hard life is on the road and ex­plores the tra­vails that still face suc­cess­ful, pro­fes­sional jok­ers – the “tears of the clown”.
