The show was conceived and written by Brad Zimmerman, who also stars in the production. Zimmie (that's what his loving father called him) never quite finds himself professionally after college - to the point that he waits tables for 29 years in New York City! At 42, he attends a stand-up comedy class and finds his calling. He later went opened for Joan Rivers for eight years. But life continued having its ups and downs for Zimmerman, plagued by the fear of failure.
The show is funny and humorous, especially about life as a waiter and dealing with customers, but also definitely has a serious underpinning about a guy who ultimately finds satisfaction in an imperfect life.
