A housewife in the 1950s decides to become a stand-up comic.
"Mrs. Maisel" nabbed three Golden Globe nominations, including Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. We caught up with the creator and stars after their 2018 Emmy wins.
Amazon's official promotional copy for this series included the fact that Mrs. Maisel has "an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner." For anyone who is Jewish or even remotely knowledgeable about Judaism, this is an odd assertion, since Yom Kippur is the best-known of several fasting observances in the Jewish calendar, and therefore no dinner would be served on the holiday. After Yom Kippur is over, Jewish families do traditionally gather for a meal to break the fast, but this meal is called a "Break-the-Fast," not "Yom Kippur dinner." The meal is referred to correctly in dialogue during the actual pilot episode.
Don Rickles is mentioned along with Bob Newhart. Rickles was years away from being famous in 1958, when the show takes place. Rickles and Newhart met in the mid 1960's.
