Melbourne International Comedy Festival presents
The Bitter Buddha 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. 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 Zach Galifianakis, 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.
