A series about a woman in her mid-20s who realizes, after a lifetime of being told by everyone else what to do, how to conform, what to wear and what to forgive, that she has a weapon in her hands.
Miriam “Midge” Maisel is a Jewish housewife living in New York City in 1958. Her husband, Joel, is a successful businessman who moonlights as a struggling comedian. She also has two kids, a swank Central Park apartment in the same building as her parents, and a small army of friends and neighbors who can’t resist her charm and boundless energy.
One night, after a particularly rough performance, Joel confesses to Midge that he has been having an affair and leaves her. Midge goes to her family for support but primarily receives criticism for choosing to marry Joel. After getting drunk, Midge returns to the comedy club where Joel performs and impulsively goes on stage, delivering an impromptu set about her predicament which the audience finds hilarious.
