My Rise to the Middle


My Rise to the Middle, written and performed by Brad Zimmerman is the companion piece to the hit off-Broadway show My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy. It is about one man's lengthy struggle to make it as an actor in New York City. It chronicles Brad's life in a way that is very funny and very poignant. Stories about Brad's childhood, his Jewish mother, his long tenure as a waiter and his experience in the world of standup comedy make for an evening that will resonate for anyone who has a dream and is willing to pay a price to achieve it.
