Story intro

Set in 1958, Miriam "Midge" Maisel is a young, upper middle-class Jewish housewife living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Her husband of four years, Joel, a businessman working at a plastics company, moonlights as a comedian at The Gaslight Cafe, using other comics' material. After one particularly mediocre performance, Joel leaves Midge for his secretary. Midge drunkenly goes back to The Gaslight where she delivers an impromptu set, confessing her predicament to the audience. While her bawdy, biting, and brilliant delivery enthralls the audience, she gets arrested after baring her breasts. Midge meets comic Lenny Bruce, who has also been arrested for obscenity in his act. Midge is bailed out of jail, and she, in turn, bails out Bruce. Inspired to be a comedian herself, she teams up with The Gaslight employee Susie Myerson, who becomes her manager. After Midge and her two children move in with her parents, Rose and Abe, she lands a job in the cosmetics department at B. Altman, a high-end department store. In addition to an income, the job provides material for Midge's act. Midge visits New York clubs to study other comedians. She meets top comedienne, Sophie Lennon, who is completely unlike her frumpy, on-stage character. Sophie advises Midge to develop her own stage persona, but Midge prefers performing as herself. After Midge disparagingly reveals in her act that Sophie is actually a wealthy, snobbish socialite, she soon finds herself blacklisted from every club in the city. However, with Susie and Lenny's help, Midge performs again and proves she has what it takes be a professional comic.
