Brad ZimmermanComedian Brad Zimmerman as he weaves a bittersweet tale of one man's lengthy struggle to make it as an actor in New York. Opening Act is Tom Cotter.

To quote Joan Rivers, "I've had 3 great opening acts in my lifetime: Billy Crystal, Garry Shandling and Brad Zimmerman. In short, there is no one on the comedy scene quite like Brad Zimmerman.”

A complete original, Brad has opened for such well known comedians as Brad Garrett, Susie Essman, Gabe Kaplan, and for the last 2 years of his life, Brad had the distinct honor of being George Carlin's regular opening act. Brad also headlines all over the country at theaters, casinos, comedy clubs and festivals.

As a member of the famed Friars Club of New York, Brad has had the pleasure of working with such venerable comedians as Freddie Roman, Dick Capri, Pat Cooper and Norm Crosby. He is also an accomplished actor, having played Johnny Sack's lawyer on The Sopranos, and his one-man show My Son The Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy had its world premiere in 2008 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach.
