Turning Tables

Google My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy, and you’re rewarded with an ad for death and mourning support services. This is undoubtedly taken in stride by writer/performer Brad Zimmerman, who’s made comedy gold out of struggle and disappointment. After decades waiting tables in New York, the underemployed actor began writing about his life and became an in-demand opener for Joan Rivers, George Carlin, and Brad Garrett, as well as playing Ron Pearse. You know, Johnny Sack’s lawyer on The Sopranos!

A cozy hybrid of standup and one-man show, My Son has delighted audiences nationwide -- even gentiles who’ve never picked up a tray -- and now it’s at Herberger Theater Center, 222 East Monroe Street, through Sunday, February 2. So start building that word of mouth Thursday, December 26, at 2 or 7 p.m., so this nice man doesn’t have to return to answering his customer’s question “What do you do when you’re not here?” with “Well, I have other tables . . .” Tickets range from $43 to $53 at www.herbergertheater.ticketforce.com or 602-252-8497


Wednesdays, 2 & 7 p.m.; Thursdays, 7 p.m.; Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 5:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 25. Continues through Feb. 2, 2013
