[ONE NIGHT ONLY, DIRECTOR AND STAR ATTENDING] Eddie Pepitone is Rumi with anger issues or Camus with a funny bone. In this darkly comedic peek into the life of a self-proclaimed “comedian-philosopher,” Steven Feinartz documents Pepitone’s unsettled personality. Though not as famous as Zack Galifianakis or Sarah Silverman, who comment on him in the film, Pepitone is known in comedic circles for his simultaneous rage and boyishness. The tragedy of tasting quasi-fame at age 50 is exactly what makes Pepitone such a cathartic subject. Feinartz’s portrait, a dynamic compilation of public shows and intimate moments, is not just for groupies. Even comedy virgins can be ensnared by Pepitone waxing on the tribulations of free online porn, tangled iPod cords and existential doubt.
