Room 861 At Goodnights: Eddie Pepitone

Nicknamed "The Bitter Buddha," comedian Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy. Hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles, and Eckhart Tolle, Eddie is a force of nature onstage, switching between social rage and self-doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment. It's no wonder that Eddie is considered a favorite from such other current comedy greats as Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, and Marc Maron. His European debut at last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival was lauded as 'jaw-achingly hilarious' and launched his international comedy career, which now also spans England, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and Norway.

In addition to his regular stand-up shows, Eddie is a stand-out character actor. On the television front, he has been a mainstay on American broadcast and cable networks and currently recurs on Community (NBC), Bob's Burgers (Fox), Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell (Adult Swim), and Conan (TBS). Other notable turns include Arrested Development (Netflix), The Flight of the Conchords (HBO), It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FX), House MD (Fox), Chappelle's Show (Comedy Central), two seasons of Last Comic Standing (NBC), and The Sarah Silverman Program (Comedy Central). On the feature side, Eddie was seen in the hit comedy Old School opposite Will Ferrell, the Sundance entry Terri with John C. Reilly, The Living Wake opposite Jesse Eisenberg, and the upcoming Anna Paquin drama Free Ride.

In addition, Eddie is frequently found on his must-follow Twitter account @eddiepepitone and is a podcast staple, including his own podcast The Long Shot(www.thelongshotpodcast.com) as well as Marc Maron's WTF (www.wtfpod.com). He stars in the daily Youtube web series Puddin' from writer/director Matt Oswalt (www.puddinstrip.com). Eddie's comedy album A Great Stillness debuted last year on Billboard's Comedy Top 10 and he is the subject of the new feature-length documentary The Bitter Buddha which was released theatrically in February and is now available via iTunes and the film's website as well as DVD in late July.
