It is being reported that Showtime has cancelled I'm Dying Up Here after two seasons. The dramedy ended its run back in July after a total of 20 episodes. Never a big ratings draw, its viewership in Season 2 did improve on its freshman numbers.

Set in the early days of L.A.'s standup comedy scene in the 1970s, I'm Dying Up Here follows a group of up-and-coming comics vying for their chance to perform at Goldie's, the most-popular standup club in Los Angeles. But to do so they will have to brave the pain of sharing their innermost thoughts and darkest secrets in the name of getting a laugh, while trying to win over the club's ruthless owner, who rules the Sunset Strip.
