My Son, the Waiter,  A Jewish Tragedy
Written by and starring Brad Zimmerman
May 2 – May 5, 2019

Brad Zimmerman combines years of training as an actor with years on the standup comedy circuit, to create this hybrid play that weaves a bittersweet tale of one man’s lengthy, and we do mean lengthy, struggle in New York City. His send-ups on his family, his career, his childhood and his misbegotten love life are as warm and poignant as they are hysterical.

“Delicious! Distinctly original… powerfully poignant.” “Great Comedy!” ~ The New York Times

“A Must See. It’s Hysterical, Heartfelt, Timely and Poignant. I cried, I laughed, I forgot where I parked.” ~ Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond)

“Like Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays.” ~ Jewish Week

“This is easily the funniest show to hit an off-Broadway stage since ‘Old Jews Telling Jokes.’ What makes this SUPERIOR is that it isn’t just jokes. It’s a life.” ~ The Jewish Daily Forward

“HILARIOUS! The humor is universal!” ~ San Diego Union Tribune

“AN ABSOLUTE MUST-SEE! You’ll laugh and you’ll walk out of the theater with a lesson: If you can find something that you truly love, it gives your life meaning. ~ Palm Beach Arts Paper
