MY SON THE WAITER: A JEWISH TRAGEDY begins 4-week run in New Brunswick, NJ

Producers Philip Roger Roy and Dana Matthow bring Brad Zimmerman's hilarious and inspiring story about the grit and passion required to 'make it' as an artist to George Street Playhouse

Brad Zimmerman’s hit comedy My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy has begun a four-week engagement at New Brunswick's George Street Playhouse that runs through October 2. Part standup, part theatrical, My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy is the story of one man’s struggle to fulfill his dream and “make it” as a comedic actor in New York.

Zimmerman spent 29 years waiting tables in New York while continuing to pursue his dream of comedic acting. In My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy, he tells the story of his journey, along with a chronicle about his childhood, family, and misbegotten love life with warmth, wit, self-deprecating humor, and wicked charm – combining his years of training as an actor with his innate comedic talent.

In this 90-minute show, Zimmerman, who grew up in Oradell, N.J., also reviews the trials and tribulations of waiting on tables, particularly for someone not exactly invested in that career, and with little tolerance for finicky diners.

My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy runs now through Oct. 2, 2016, at George Street Playhouse, located at 9 Livingston Avenue in the heart of New Brunswick's vibrant downtown dining and entertainment district. Tickets start at $45 and are available online at or by phone at732-246-7717. For group rates (10 or more), please call 1-888-264-1788.
