Actor-comedian Brad Zimmerman's one-man show My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy is set to begin a 12-week run at Stage 72 after touring throughout the country. Performances begin October 10 with an official opening October 19. The show, written and directed by Zimmerman, will close December 31.

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. Rivers said of him, "He's the best comic in his price range." He is also known for appearing in HBO's The Sopranos.

Stage 72, formerly the Triad Theater, is an off-Broadway performance space and comedy venue that has hosted acts such as Forever Plaid, Forbidden Broadway, and Secrets Every Traveler Should Know.
