Well folk’s, he’s back and hopefully funnier than ever. Jim Carrey is returning to the small screen for the Showtime pilot, ‘I’m Dying Up Here’. I’m Dying Up Here is billed as a dark comedy that is set in the 1970s world of stand-up comedy.

Showtime has given the Jim Carrey-produced comedy the green light.

“The series delves into the inspired and damaged psyches that are required to stand alone in front of an audience and make them laugh.” The show stars Oscar winner Melissa Leo as a comedy mentor and brassy comedy club owner.
