Midge Maisel and Susie Myerson have a deep and enduring friendship in the television series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Their relationship forms the emotional core of the show and is a significant source of support and growth for both characters.
Miriam ‘‘Midge’ Maisel is a housewife turned stand-up comedian in 1950s New York City. Susie Myerson is a tough-talking and street-smart manager who recognizes Midge’s comedic talent and becomes her manager and confidante.
From their first encounter, Midge and Susie form an unlikely bond. Susie sees Midge’s potential as a comedian and becomes determined to help her succeed in the male-dominated world of stand-up comedy. Susie’s gruff exterior and unwavering belief in Midge’s abilities provide the support and encouragement Midge needs to pursue her dreams. Midge values Susie’s honesty and authenticity, while Susie appreciates Midge's talent and fearlessness. They share a strong work ethic, a rebellious spirit, and a commitment to challenging societal norms.
Midge and Susie face numerous obstacles and setbacks, but they always have each other’s backs.
Overall, Midge Maisel and Susie Myerson's friendship is a key element of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” It showcases the power of true friendship in navigating life’s challenges, pursuing dreams, and finding strength in the face of adversity.
In the end, sometimes all you need to know is that your best friend is only a phone call away. You laugh through the night while watching the same television show in a daily Remarkist-like event. True friends are never apart - maybe in distance, but never in heart. ♥️
On the night of Midge’s big break, she is reminded of Lenny Bruce’s words of encouragement by a fortune cookie paper that flutters out of her notebook. What were those lucky numbers?
because my brain is a wild jungle of scary jibberish!
