The Funny and The Fury: Eddie Pepitone

The Bitter Buddha – comedian Eddie Pepitone – is coming to Super Serious this month - St. Patrick's Day. Watch out. Pepitone is a force of nature on stage – often switching back and forth between social rage and self doubt. An energetic combo of calm and chaos, Pepitone is one of our favorite comedians. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Pepitone. He’s one of a kind and a favorite among fellow comedians and die heard comedy fans alike.

In addition to his stand-up skills, Eddie Pepitone is a stand-out comic/character actor. Pepitone began his comedy career in New York City, quickly becoming a regular on the scene. He appeared regularly on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. His other numerous television appearances include Chappelle’s Show, Crossballs on Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel Live, King of Queens, Last Comic Standing, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Sarah Silverman Program. Pepitone also appeared in the hit movie Old School.

Pepitone’s has dramatic acting chops, as well, with appearances on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Deadline, The Beat and Now and Again.

He toured the country with the acclaimed Improv company Chicago City Limits. He currently tours nationwide and is a staple in the Los Angeles comedy scene, performing at The Improv, Largo and The Upright Citizen Brigade Theatre. The Comedy Bureau recently profiled Pepitone and his excellence. It's a great read and summary of why so many love Pepitone.

Pepitone’s one of the more popular and flavorful comedians online these days - his Twitter account is a must follow. He is one of the hosts of the popular comedy podcast, The Long Shot. Recently, Pepitone wrote and starred in an ongoing web series, Puddin’ Time – a great modern live-action version of the traditional single-frame comic.

Here’s one of our favorite Pepitone rants from a 2009 live recroding of Marc Maron’s popular WTF podcast. Enjoy.

Character Builder: Seth Morris

Seth Morris is one of our favorite comedians working both in-front and behind the camera. Check him out at The Super Serious Show this month.

There's always a chance he'll bring one of his great characters to the show with him. His most recent creation is the hilariously sad divorced man, Bob Ducca. A brief explanation of Ducca:

Bob Ducca isn't just the saddest divorced man in the world, he's also an addict of 12 Step recovery programs, a sufferer of ailments unrecognized by the medical community, a remote controlled motor boat enthusiast, and the holder of the world record for longest sigh.

Originally from San Francisco, Morris began his comedy career in New York City in 1997, studying at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.  He appeared in, directed and wrote for many shows at the UCB and performed in numerous comedy festivals nationwide.
