I'm Dying up Here
Heartbreak and High Times in Stand-up Comedy's Golden EraBook - 2009
William Knoedelseder was then a cub reporter covering the burgeoning local comedy scene for the Los Angeles Times . He wrote the first major newspaper profiles of several of the future stars. And he was there when the comedians--who were not paid by the clubs where they performed-- tried to change the system and incidentally tore apart their own close-knit community. In I'm Dying Up Here he tells the whole story of that golden age, of the strike that ended it, and of how those days still resonate in the lives of those who were there. As comedy clubs and cable TV began to boom, many would achieve stardom.... but success had its price.
