Brad Zimmerman's MY SON THE WAITER Coming to Southern California This Spring

Brad Zimmerman's MY SON THE WAITER Coming to Southern California This Spring

Difficult mothers you live in fear of disappointing? Check. Deferred dreams? Check. Dead-end job? Check. All key components that make up Brad Zimmerman's lengthy struggle of making it as an actor in New York - a struggle that resulted in a hit one-man show.

Zimmerman brings his Off-Broadway sensation "My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy" to Southern California for a brief run at the Huntington Beach Library Theater April 20 - May 14. The play is part theatrical and part standup, and will leave audience members in stitches with its sardonic commentary on Zimmerman's table-waiting days and its old-school Jewish humor featuring his overbearing mother, thrifty father and misbegotten love life.

Based on his own life journey, Zimmerman - whom Joan Rivers described as "one of the three great opening acts in my lifetime" alongside Billy Crystal and Garry Shandling - weaves stories of his childhood, his Jewish mother's not-so-secret wish of him becoming a doctor, lawyer or some other wildly successful, stable career man, the 29 years he spent "temporarily" waiting tables served with a side of self-loathing, and his not-so-blossoming love life.

Performances of "My Son the Waiter" are Thursdays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $45 to $65. Group discounts available. To purchase tickets or for information, call 855-448-7469 (855-HIT SHOW) or visit the website MySonTheWaiter.com. The show runs April 20 - May 14 at the Huntington Beach Library Theater, 7111 Talbert Avenue, Huntington Beach.
