showtimes and tickets

**Please join us for a Special Q&A with comic legend Eddie Pepitone and director Steven Feinartz on Friday, March 8th following the 7pm screening. Moderated by Comedy-Writer/Producer Julie Klausner (from the acclaimed podcast "How Was Your Week?")**

The Documentary takes an unconventional journey with a true “comic’s comic”. For a few decades, Eddie Pepitone has proven to be a startling force in the alt-comedy scene. Within “The Bitter Buddha” we follow Eddie as he deals with a middle-age career surge, while struggling with self-doubt, sobriety, and a challenging family history.

Original animation, stand-up comedy and engaging interviews with Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Marc Maron and others help us gain insight into the life of a beloved career comedian known as “the guitarist that all the other guitarists go to see.” As one of the best-kept secrets in the scene, Eddie Pepitone is documented in this unhinged portrait of creativity, enlightenment and rage.

"By turns robustly amusing and wistfully melancholy."
-Joe Leydon, Variety

"...A compelling, sweet, funny valentine to a comic's comic and a true American original."
-Nathan Rabin, AV Club

Eddie is a gem.

Currently he is considered the comedian's comedian, but not for long. This doc takes you inside the life of a talented comedian who isn't sure what to make of being famous.

This might just be the project that pushes Eddie into stardom, be part of it and see why the comedy world is routing for The Bitter Buddha!

5 stars!
