The show was inconsistent. He had some very funny moments; but there were also way too many lulls. When he tried to combine sentimentality with humor; he fell flat. His jokes/ stories about his dad were also flat. On the other hand, when he...continued

Amusing evening. Brad Zimmerman has created a show that tells about his life and how he got to where he is now and what he still wants to accomplish. If you are Jewish you will probably enjoy this show.

Funny one man comedy/story telling show. For the most part, very entertaining. Would be great for a temple group.

Great Borsht Belt comedy. Some of the humor was fresh, some a little predictable or stale. Over all, an enjoyable enough evening out. Reminded me a bit of Billy Crystal's one man show.

Two genuine brilliant moments of laughter, a few guffaws, but mostly tired banter. Something in the timing...the segues? Not sure. Many in the audience giggled throughout, but many fell asleep, too.

Zimmerman was amazing at holding my attention for a one man show. He is a skilled actor and comic. Very enjoyable night.

Very funny and entertaining show! Went with our 16 year old son and we all enjoyed the show immensely. Brad is a great story teller and comedian. Left with a smile on our faces!

I loved it! I brought two of my Pals. The one and a half hour show hit the funny bone, touched the heart and also left us feeling inspired to keep working toward goals in life.
An honest story about overcoming obstacles that so often cause us to...continued

Intimate, if slightly worn-down, theater, everyone was close and that added to the experience. It's a fun combination of personal story and stand-up type material, and the audience laughed pretty much all the way through. A couple times I had...continued

We didn't know what to expect since this is a one-man show. Brad Zimmerman, the star of the show, did an excellent job of engaging the audience and making us all laugh.
