Ever been to a famous city and gone on an underground tour with a friend who's lived there for years? The Bitter Buddha is a side-streets tour through the world of comedy, hosted by names most of us know (Dana Gould, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis) and spotlighting a comic most people don't: Eddie Pepitone, secret cornerstone of today's young comedy tradition. Though he's never been a household name, Pepitone continues to craft his hilariously livid stage persona. In Buddha, a wide circle of Pepitone's friends come together to help tell the story of his decades-long "rise and fall."
