Directed by Steve Feinartz, this feature film documentary takes an unconventional journey with a true "comic's comic". You've heard him on the CFN Podcast. For a few decades, Eddie Pepitone has proven to be a startling force in the alt-comedy scene. In "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. Friends and fans alike, Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, BJ Novak, Marc Maron, and many more appear in this loving portrait of an artist.
