How housewife became stand up comedian| The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Amazon Prime Shows


Today I’m going to talk about one of the wonderful TV show. It belongs to comedy drama categories but the takeaway from this show is something inspiring.

Name of the show is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a story of a housewife who became a famous stand-up comedian.

Two seasons of this show are currently available on Amazon Prime video. When the first season was released it got huge appreciation from people all around the world.

I started watching this series because it is created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls.ย ย Her stories are fun, characters are full of life and at the end of the show, there will be a lot to take away.

This woman created the history by banging Emmy awards for her comedy writing & directing in 2018. No wonder! She is too good at her job.

Coming to The Marvelous Mrs.Maisel….

Set in 1950s show highlights how women were treated in the world full of male dominants. Sadly nothing much has changed today and we still can relate to most part of the show.


Midge marries the love of her life in front of her parents, family, and friends.

When you look at her life after four years, she is one happy wife with 2 kids and a perfect husband. She is multitasking!

She goes to the club where her husband used to perform his stand-up act and presents herself on the stage.

Mrs. Maisel is natural! She doesn’t need a script to perform. She makes people laugh and wins their heart.

The story doesn’t end here. This is the beginning.


Mrs. Maisel comes from a hypocritical family who blames her for the broken marriage. Her husband had another affair and left her for her no reason. But everyone advised her with a lot of tips to make things better. That was irony!

Everyone shows sympathy towards her and ask ‘What are you going to do with your life’ as if like she never had any life without her husband.

They advise her to find another partner because she can’t handle her life alone!

When she talks about becoming a standup comedian they won’t take her seriously because they think that field is not for women.

Widge(Mrs.Maisel) ignores them and step into the world of stand-up comedy. Usage of the foul language in her performance makes Wedge to step into the court. Mrs.Maisel used the same words which were used by the men but the world was not ready to listen to them from a woman!

But she fights for it and finds her life!



Here me signing off today’s #favositeshow post.

Keep watching.

    Such a great show! I love how it really gets into how hard it was to do comedy as a female. Can’t wait for new episodes.

    1. Hackytips says:

      Yup! Brilliant one!

  2. Nice story. You have encyclopaedic knowledge of TV serials. But I like Ms.Maisel. We all must show such courage and determination to face the adversity.

    1. Hackytips says:

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is one series that I’ve watched and loved. It kept coming on my feed as recommendation and I finally decided to give in. It’s one of my favorite series in recent times.

  4. I haven’t watched this show but you’ve sold it to me! I think I’ll reward myself by binge-watching it after the AtoZ Challenge!

    The society Mrs. Maisel lived in almost sounds Indian. The advise to go back to her husband and being blamed for the split! All this is typically Indian stuff. That was the kind of society America was in the 1950s. I like the fact that she beats all the hypocrisy and becomes a stand up comedian. Definitely sounds like a very promising series. On my list.

    1. Hackytips says:
