Rachel Brosnahan on 'Mrs. Maisel' Stand-Up Scenes Getting 'bigger and bigger'
Friday on "The Talk," Rachel Brosnahan and Michael Zegen spill on the second season of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." Brosnahan reveals how she builds up confidence to perform stand-up (as Midge) in front of large crowds. "A lot of power posing, a lot of like wearing pedicoats in the mirror and going, 'I can do this.' Michael [Zegan] spends a lot of time making me feel better. I did have a realization while we were shooting that scene, that, this is the biggest audience that Midge has ever performed in front of, and simultaneously the biggest audience that I have ever performed in front of. And that, as Midge becomes more successful on the show... that the audiences are just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger, I was absolutely horrified. And Amy [Sherman-Palladino] starts taking about stadiums and I was like, 'Oh my God.'" On the second season ending with Midge and Joel reconnecting after a long separation, Zegan reacts, "I think he needs to stay away."
