An intimate evening with Eddie Pepitone
True Grit Comedy is proud to present the hilarious 'Bitter Buddha' Eddie Pepitone one night only in KNOXVILLE!
Thursday, June 17 2021 doors at 8:30pm, shpw at 9pm (all times Eastern)
You may know his work from his work on the Chappelle Show, Comedy Central, or CONAN, and his recent New York Times' kudos for the 'best comedy special of 2020'. Eddie is joined by VERY special touring feature JT Habersaat (800 Pound Gorilla / Stand Up! Records / Altercation Comedy Festival curator).
Hosted by Beth Tomkins, with local support from Gail Grantham and Keith Marcell!
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. 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, Chappelle’s Show, appearances on Bob’s Burgers, and he’s a regular on Adult Swim’s Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell.
Show begins at 9pm.
