Special Event: Eddie Pepitone

Comedian Eddie Pepitone, also known as 'The Bitter Buddha,' is a master of the dark art of comedy, and he has been hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles, and Eckart Tolle. Eddie is a force of nature on stage, switching between social rage and self-doubt, and his shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Eddie Pepitone. His most recent stand-up special "For the Masses" was released in June 2020, which the New York Times listed as one of the best stand-up specials of that year. In 2014, Eddie released "In Ruins," his first stand-up that was shot at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY.

In addition to his regular stand-up shows, Eddie is a stand-out comic/character actor. Beginning in New York City’s improv/sketch scene (where he quickly became a regular face), and continuing on to recurring roles on "Late Night with Conan O’Brien" as well as appearances on "WTF with Marc Maron Podcast." Eddie has also appeared on numerous comedy TV shows, including "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," "Rick and Morty," "Reno 911!," "10 Year Old Tom," "The Life and Times of Tim," "Will & Grace," "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Love," "The Sarah Silverman Program," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Comic Standing," "The Chappelle Show," and "Bob’s Burgers." He’s a regular on Adult Swim’s "Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell," and fans also might recognize Eddie from his role in the hit comedy "Old School" or from his award-winning short, "Runyon: Just Above Sunset," co-written by his wife Karen Simmons.
