Pepitone is also known as “The Bitter Buddha”, his nickname from the 2012 documentary that followed Eddie dealing with sobriety, new found popularity in mid-life and his family history all while working as a stand-up.
“In Ruins” is a pure stand up special, (his first one) where the Bitter Buddha takes the stage in front of a live capacity audience at the Bell House in Brooklyn. Eddie takes the audience through his many frustrations including his hate for magicians, Yelp reviews, insomnia and his desire to mix two of this passions politics and game shows. The result is a hysterical hour of stand up comedy that ends in a standing ovation from his fans in Brooklyn.
Eddie Pepitone: In Ruins is now available for streaming at Netflix.com
