I'm Dying Up Here

Critics Consensus

While I'm Dying Up Here hints at untapped potential and deserves praise for authentic period detail, its attempts at affecting drama are undermined by subpar writing and a muddled focus.

    The idea is good but the characters lack depth. When they're not on stage they still seem to be acting. Most of the jokes are not that funny. As I get older I realize how shallow & creepy artists are. I never liked Jim Carrey. A third season would be filled with meaningless soap opera drama.

    I just found out this series was canceled. Started watching it on my Showtime app without knowing much about it. I'm devastated. As a big Marc Maron fan, it was so cool to see so many interview conversations he's had about Mitzi (and the LA comedy scene) come to life. The characters have drawn me in, and I can't believe I only get two seasons with them. I'm not sure who decided to cancel this series, but that person was wrong.
  • Sep 04, 2019
    Sucks it was cancelled after just 2 seasons.
  • Aug 25, 2019
    I love this series and I'm gutted that it's been cancelled. Bold strong characters, complex story lines, politically relevant themes. Come on Showtime bring it back!
  • Jan 28, 2019
    Excellent writing and cast. Very surprised to see the critics ratings. I thought it would get a 9. Stumbled across the show and and binged S1. Now onto S2 and hope it stays captivating. I thought S1 was exceptional.
  • Jul 09, 2018
    This is an amazing show but I feel like the writing is all over the place and doesn't really ever lead to much. Then again life as a comedian can be muddled and that is what this show is about. I hope to see a season 3.
  • Jun 25, 2018
    This show is great! I have o idea why the critics reviews are so poor. The performances are terrific, the scripts are well done and there is real tension in the character development.
  • Jun 25, 2018
    DARk, HIlarious, and very well writte and acted. One oF the best shows on caBle!
  • Jun 13, 2018
    Solidly disagree with the critics on this one. I was pleasantly suprised with this show and found the so called "muddled focus" actually aids the narritive and style of the show.
  • Jun 10, 2018
    Melissa Leo is perfect as Goldie, the owner of 70's LA comedy club with the clout to decide who "goes up" on her stage and gets a spot on Johnny Carson. Thw show shows the funny as well as the dark side of the various standups who hang around "Goldie's" waiting for their big break --- Carson's couch. The supporting case is perfect. Fair warning: don't expect a full-on comedy. The drama, romance, sadness and petty competition compete with the laughs. it's all on display
