NEW YORK (AP) — Dying is easy. Playing the owner of a circa-1970s L.A. comedy club — THAT'S hard.
"But when I say that it was hard and that it was a reach for me, I mean: Those are the things that interested me as an actor," says Melissa Leo, who stars as Goldie, the tough-love gatekeeper to fame and fortune for a rising wave of standup comics on "I'm Dying Up Here," which premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT on Showtime.
