Mr. Zimmerman has appeared on John Oliver’s “New York Stand Up Show,” and was one of the comedians to be chosen to film a Comedy Central Half Hour stand-up special in 2014. The New York-based comedian has performed late night on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” performed on Nickleodeon’s “NickMom Night Out,” appeared on the nationally syndicated “Bob & Tom Show,” and was chosen as one of the acclaimed New Faces at “Just For Laughs Montreal,” where he was positively reviewed by both “The Spit Take” and “Time Out NY.”

Mr. Zimmerman’s debut album “Smiling At Wolves” reached No. 2 on the iTunes Comedy charts when released by New Wave Entertainment in January 2014.

Praised for an accessible style pairing absurdism with a fun loving demeanor, Mr. Zimmerman has been personally selected by Ricky Gervais as a Conan contest finalist, other festivals, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM and Pandora. He is an original member of the Beards of Comedy, the most requested tour in the Southeast from 2008-2012. The Beards released two albums (2011’s Cardio Mix on Comedy Central Records); their Bears Across America MSN web series amassed more than a million views.
