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.
