Bitter Buddha Delivers Pepitone Like We've Never Seen Him Before!
19 February 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

What a great documentary.

This is not just for people that comedy nerds. This has an additional theme running through it that most of us didn't expect. It was a well done documentary. I highly recommend it. I laughed, was sad, was surprised and glad that I paid the money for this movie. We need more movies like this.

I think many young comedians are going to understand some of the gems he shares along the way in this documentary. All of you young comedians that purely do topic comedy will have something to think about.
