Soon enough, she finds herself exactly where she had hoped to be, living happily with her husband and two children in the Upper West Side. A woman of her time, Midge is a cheerleader wife to a man who dreams of a stand-up comedy career, but her perfect life is upended when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman. Utterly unprepared, Midge is left with no choice but to reevaluate her life. When she accidentally stumbles onto the stage at a nightclub, she discovers her own comedic skills and decides to use this newfound talent to help her reinvent her life. The series follows the trajectory of Midge's journey as she pursues a career in the male-dominated, stand-up comedy profession, and transforms from uptown...

Did You Know?
During the Jewish holiday of Passover, instead of attending a service at a synagogue, it is traditional to hold a ritual service (called a Seder) at one's own home or to attend a Seder at the home of family or friends. The book that sets forth the ancient text and order ("seder" literally means "order") of the Passover service and recounts the story of the Exodus from Egypt is called a Haggadah (literally, "telling, tale, lesson"). Many editions of the Haggadah have been published over the centuries, but arguably the most frequently used twentieth-century American edition of the Haggadah is the one that was distributed by the Maxwell House coffee company, starting in 1932 as a marketing promotion to inform Jewish households that Maxwell House was Kosher for Passover. The Maxwell House Hagaddah has been used for Seders by the US Military, in prisons, and in the White House. In 2019, Maxwell House announced that the newest edition of their Haggadah was a limited edition tie-in with the TV show "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," combining a real 1950s edition of their Haggadah with illustrations of the show's characters and a brisket recipe supposedly from Midge herself. The special-edition Haggadah was only available to Maxwell House customers who ordered their coffee through Amazon; "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is an Amazon Prime show. See more
