Just about the very definition of a cult favorite, Eddie Pepitone is an LA staple that has been in and around this game for a long time.
He 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.
In addition to his regular stand-up shows, Eddie is stand-out comic/character actor. Beginning in New York City’s improv/sketch scene (where he quickly became a regular face), and continuing on to 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. Fans also might recognize Pepitone from his role in the hit comedy Old School or from his multiple award-winning short, Runyon: Just Above Sunset.
He is also an accomplished dramatic actor, having appeared on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, The Beat, and Now and Again.
Eddie lives in LA now, because there’s no shortage of things to be mad at there.
The show will also feature nationally touring local hot bots, Greg Bach (The Badger Journal Times) and Jason Hillman (Great American Comedy Fest), and will feature some super special guests.
The Underground Collaborative is located in the lower level of the Grand Avenue Mall. Tickets for this incredible show are only $15 online@eventbrite and $20 at the door. More information is available at MilwaukeeComedy.com.
