I’m Dying Up Here is stuck on a dead stage, trying out any material it can and failing to pursue the few parts that deserve further exploration. Between a few moving dramatic moments (Ralph, played by Erik Griffin, is underutilized), a few too many crass jokes about women (Clark Duke’s Ron, who performs on “Soul Train,” is really out of place this year), and a few too many familiar story beats, it’s time to pull the cord on this cold mic.

For mine, there’s been a _little_ padding in the lead up episodes, but overall the payoffs have been well worth the investment. A lot to like… very much looking forward to the remaining episodes. Season 3 please!… Full Review »
