Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy. Hailed as Don Rickles meets Eckhart Tolle, “The Bitter Buddha” is a force of nature onstage, switching between social rage and self-doubt. Few comedians working today channel the power of rant better. Eddie currently recurs on Community, Conan, Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell, and Bob’s Burgers and was seen in the feature film Old School. His international debut at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe was lauded as “jaw-achingly hilarious” and a “tour-de-force” and he has subsequently performed in England, Ireland, Canada, Norway, and Australia. His album “A Great Stillness” debuted on Billboard’s Comedy Top 10 and he is the subject of the recent documentary “The Bitter Buddha”.
