We often hear about Greek tragedies when it comes to theater and various performances around town. How often do we hear about a Jewish tragedy?!

In some ways, this tragedy is linked to the Greeks. This production stems from familiar Greek territory, the diner!

Brad Zimmerman is the star and brains behind the show. The actor and comedian puts on a hilarious and inspiring story about the grit and passion required to ‘make it’ as an artist in New York City.

Mr. Zimmerman moved to New York City and “temporarily” waited tables for 29 years, while continuing to pursue his dream of comedic acting. He never gave up and many years later, opened for Joan Rivers, Brad Garrett and the famed George Carlin and now has his own touring show that is as profound as it is entertaining.

The one-man show “My Son the Waiter, a Jewish Tragedy,” opened Sunday at Stage 72 at the Triad Theater on West 72nd Street. The show is scheduled to run through Dec. 31.

The Greeks invented tragedies and the Jews made it funny. Go see this show!
