A housewife in the 1950s decides to become a stand-up comic.
A critic for Slate called the pilot episode "a knockout", stating that the stand-up element "introduces a welcome streak of discipline, both verbal and thematic, into Amy Sherman-Palladino's charming but manic work."
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.
