“Men in general run around telling everyone that only men are funny. Comedy is fuelled by disappointment and humiliation. Now who does that describe more than WO-men?”
Marvelous Mrs Maisel may only be one season in, but it has already won a legion of fans (and eight Emmy Awards).
From the creator of Gilmore Girls, Amy Sherman-Palladino, we get a glimpse into the bustling 1950s New York comedy scene.
Midge, an up and coming female stand up, turns to comedy after breaking up with her husband (and fellow stand up) as a way to channel her anger, frustration and wit.
According to Amazon, this is what we can expect: After Midge’s triumph at the Gaslight, the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon looms large, making her climb up the comedy ladder more challenging than ever. As the actual grind of being a comic begins to take its toll on Midge, the pressure to come clean to her family weighs on her — especially as her choices have a ripple effect on everyone around her.
If it’s as endearing, funny and clever as the first season, then we can not wait for December 5 when the second season is due to drop on Amazon Prime.
