Jim Carrey executive produces this brand new series set in the notorious 1970s stand-up comedy scene in Los Angeles. Based on the William Knoedelseder’s book of the same name, it stars Academy Award winner Melissa Leo, former Girls star Jake Lacy, Ronald Cyler II, Ari Graynor, Clark Duke and Michael Angarano as up and coming comedians all chomping at the bit for a taste of the big time, which back then, all kicked off with a booking on Johnny Carson's iconic The Tonight Show. All their lives intersect at the city's primo comedy club where they learn that the road to the top is far from as easy it seems.
