Pepitone

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.

Looks like Don Rickles-era comedian.

I am madly in love with Eddie Pepitone. If you're not
Following him on twitter you are missing out on the best part about it: @eddiepepitone

First, Don Rickles is still doing it at 80 plus. You'll be lucky to be doing anything noteworthy or memorable at any age.

Second, Eddie Pepitone is a genius. The last 10 minutes of his recent appearance on Todd Glass' podcast, totally off the cuff, are 10 of the greatest minutes in podcasting ever. The man has the best Twitter feed in comedy. He's a national treasure. I won't have anyone even ineptly and impotently mocking the man.

6:36 PM Maybe true about Eddie Pepitone, but Don Rickles is pathetic and was never funny.

9:17 wouldn't know funny if it came up and fucked her. It's called truth. You should be thankful that he exists!
