My Son the Waiter
is actor/comedian Brad Zimmerman’s hilarious and inspiring story about the grit and passion required to “make it” as an artist and the sweet rewards that come from never giving up on your dream. Brad moved to New York City and “temporarily” waited tables for 29 years, while continuing to pursue his dream of comedic acting. He never gave up and, many years later, after opening for Joan Rivers, Brad Garrett, and the famed George Carlin, his off-Broadway hit show is as profound as it is entertaining. The New York Times called it: “Delicious! Distinctly original and powerfully poignant…. Great Comedy!”
