Before Hamburger, you have GOT to catch Eddie Pepitone at the Gotham Comedy Club on May 29th. Eddie, who one could argue is the original Brooklyn Vegan (true! Born in Brooklyn, adheres to the Vegan lifestyle) (there's a hamburger vegan joke in here somewhere), released his first ever live album A Great Stillness in December 2011 and it is nothing short of brilliant. Pepitone, also regarded as The Bitter Buddha, is a living legend in the comedy world and has the respect and adoration of just about everyone in the biz. He is even the subject of a hopefully-to-be-screened-in-NYC-and-beyond documentary The Bitter Buddah. Hopefully he'll also do some smaller, more indie rooms around the city during that window of time when he is here for that Gotham show. He simply does not perform in NYC that often, and I urge one and all to see this man dominate. Check out the official teaser for the Bitter Buddah below.
