Eddie Pepitone: They call him the Bitter Buddha (captured in the critically-acclaimed feature film documentary of the same name). Comedian Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy, often hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Eckart Tolle.
Eddie is a force of nature on stage, switching between social rage and self-doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Eddie Pepitone. Fans will know Eddie from his newest Netflix one-hour special ‘IN RUINS’, his numerous appearances on ‘WTF with Marc Maron’, or his performances on ‘Community’ and ‘Bob’s Burgers’.
In addition to his regular stand-up shows, Eddie is stand-out comic/character actor, with recurring roles on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Eddie has also appeared on numerous comedy TV shows, including The Life and Times of Tim, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Sarah Silverman Program, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, and Chappelle’s Show. Pepitone is also an accomplished dramatic actor, having appeared on Law and Order: Criminal Intent and ‘The Muppets’, and is the host of the very popular Peptalks Podcast.
Eddie is also a regular headliner at prestigious comedy festivals around the world, and a constant performer at some of the most legendary clubs in Los Angeles including The Comedy Store, Largo and the Hollywood Improv. 2019-2020 will see Eddie embarking on some long-awaited new national tour dates alongside fellow comic JT Habersaat, dubbed the ‘FOR THE MASSES’ TOUR.
JT Habersaat: Deemed the ‘Godfather of Punk Rock Comedy’ by ‘Chicago Now’, JT Habersaat has headlined the groundbreaking Altercation Comedy Tour for over a decade.
At once both observational and bitingly sardonic, JT has released a trio of albums on the Grammy-winning imprint Stand Up! Records, including his most recent one-hour special ‘MISANTHROPE’ which shot to #2 on the iTunes top 200 comedy charts. JT is a frequent guest on the Doug Stanhope Podcast, has appeared on Comedy Central’s sketch program ‘The Upright Citizen’s Brigade’, and acted opposite adult film legend Ron Jeremy in the cult Troma Films hit ‘Toxic Avenger 4’.
JT is a frequent festival headliner, having in recent years performed on Pouzza Fest Montreal, Akumal Comedy Festival Mexico, Bird City Comedy Fest Arizona, The Fest Florida, Punk Rock Bowling Fest Las Vegas, Fun Fun Fun Fest Texas and the nation-spanning VAN’S WARPED TOUR. Habersaat has consistently shared the stage with countless modern comedy legends such as Kyle Kinane, Henry Rollins, Janeane Garofalo, Brian Posehn and Doug Stanhope, and his most recent novel ‘KILLING FOR A LIVING’ was released in late 2018 to much critical acclaim. When not touring, JT hosts the weekly program ‘The Road Podcast’, and curates the annual Altercation Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas, recently hailed by ‘New York Magazine’ has one of their ‘Top Comedy Festivals in the World’. 2019-2020 will see JT embarking on some long-awaited new national tour dates alongside fellow comic Eddie Pepitone, dubbed the ‘FOR THE MASSES’ TOUR.
