Who is Brad Zimmerman, you ask? I didn't know until I had to interview him. Then I checked out the few standup clips he has online as well as excerpts from his one-man show, My Son the Waiter, A Jewish Tragedy. Funny guy, that Zimmerman. And a guy with no quit to him. Check out his story in our interview below:

"I'm enormously successful. I'm just not rich or well known yet. And if I don't ever get any further than I am, I'm still enormously successful." – Brad Zimmerman
: How are you?!
: Not only am I expecting your call but you're four minutes late so I got worried. I said, 'Uh-oh.' But first of all, more important than that, I'm on a cellphone, I'm in Coral Springs, Florida, so hopefully we'll have the same clear connection. How long is this interview going to be?

Ready for another full interview? I finally completed my Kids in the Hall set by talking to Dave Foley. Over the years, I'd interviewed all the others (all the ones in the final TV iteration, anyway; the other earlier members are the comedic equivalent of Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe of the Beatles – interesting trivia questions to show how devoted you are as a true fan). I also got the chance to check out his standup act, first at the Best of the Fest gala and then I liked what I saw so I went out to see his full set at Lafflines Comedy Club in New Westminster.

"I had a lot of fun on both shows. There was a lot less fighting on NewsRadio, so that was nice. We had a lot of fun on Kids in the Hall but definitely NewsRadio was a great, fun cast to be around." – Dave Foley

: Oh, really? Now you can finally rest.
"I actually did standup for the show Thrill of a Lifetime on CTV and flew to L.A. and performed at the Improv when I was 19." – Dave Foley
