A housewife in the 1950s decides to become a stand-up comic.
Midge's (Rachel Brosnahan) first open mic takes place on September 23, 1958, which was in fact, Erev Yom Kippur. Although the family makes a big deal about having the Rabbi over for breakfast after Yom Kippur, Midge and her mother are both shown eating and drinking on Yom Kippur (despite it being a fasting holiday) and Abe and Moshe are both shown working on Yom Kippur (despite it being one of the few holiday even secular Jews spend in synagogue).
When Abe is sorting through children's albums looking for a song the computer can sing, he looks at one featuring Snoopy and Woodstock from the 'Peanuts' strip on the cover. Woodstock didn't emerge as a distinct character until the 1960's.
