it was amazing

This is an excellent book about The Comedy Store and the standup strike of 1979. I previously read a similar book on the same subject but "I'm Dying up here" is superior. The story is told in a compelling way and moves along at a fine pace.
It kept my interest even though I am not a particular fan of any of the main players.
While covering comedy in the 1970s, the book is really a chronicle of tragedy.
