The Bitter Buddha
There are a million funny comedians telling jokes and getting laughs. There is only one Eddie Pepitone. The ranting, raging performance artist and comic — think Sam Kinison, but smarter and with a social conscience — has long been treasured and revered by cognoscenti in the comedy community. Now, with the release of “The Bitter Buddha,” a feature-length documentary about Eddie’s singular talent for telling the truth, the rest of the world will be let in on the secret. The film screens this weekend at LA’s RIOT Festival. See it. See Eddie. And have your life changed for the better.
