Jim Carrey and Lisa Lampanelli are teaming to produce an HBO pilot that will center around a club, similar to Mitzi Shore's famous comedy club, The Comedy Store in LA. Like many others, Jim Carrey got his start there in the 70's and 80's. According to Variety, "the central character is a Mitzi Shore type, a woman who unexpectedly becomes the owner of a comedy club and is forced to play a maternal role in the dysfunctional lives of the club's clutch of resident comics."
The pilot is already getting so much attention that we are sure to see this show come to fruition by next spring. Jim Carrey has proven to be comedy gold. It shall be interesting to see Jim's talents as producer.
