The Pain of Not Being Funny
15 December 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Midge decides to find money for herself. So she goes to a department store and tries to get a job as an elevator operator. As it turns out, her best course is to work in the makeup department. One again she tries to her act at Susie's place. It's a nightmare. Then she tries professional training. Nightmare number two. Meanwhile her ex is trying to make a go with the former secretary. Not so great. This episode is more expository.
