Brad Zimmerman's Show, My Son the Waiter, Gets New Life Off-Broadway


Earlier this year, we posted a clip of Brad Zimmerman performing a short excerpt from his off-Broadway show My Son the Waiter

The show, a funny review of his life as a comic actor and waiter, was supposed to close at the end of December, but has been extended through March 2, 2015.

Written and directed by Zimmerman, who also stars, My Son the Waiter tells the story of how Zimmerman, now pushing 60, waited tables in New York for a mind-numbing 29 years, before finally taking himself seriously enough to study stand-up comedy, and write a one-man show about waiting until his mid-50s to perform onstage.

Zimmerman is an actor and comedian who has opened for George Carlin and Joan Rivers. He is also known for appearing on HBO's The Sopranos.

Here's a longer (8 minute) look at Zimmerman on stage telling his funny life story.

Enjoy!
