I had the same initial impression of I’m Dying Up Here, but I did like Episode 3 a lot better. I’ll be interested to hear if you agree. I like the characters of the two young broke stand-ups from Boston best. They’re the comic relief of the show, strange as that might sound when it’s a series about stand-up comedians.

I used to live up in Prince George. Driving on highway 97 and seeing the landscape change was cool enough, but going the Fraser Canyon was always a thrill. Such a beautiful area.
