Some funny jokes from Pepitone but not too deep personally
25 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Eddie Pepitone is an older comedian who can't quite get his stardom. He was originally from Staten Island with his angry father and is now living in LA. He's cleaned up his life. He has a girl. He has his cats. Marc Maron makes fun of him a lot. Patton Oswalt is a good friend. He specializes in yelly loud angry standups. He's into tweeting. But is he too old to make it big?

There are some suggestion of difficulties in his life. But I feel that's what's missing from this documentary. Instead we mostly have cameras following Eddie around. We get glimpses of his life, but nothing too deep. There are some funny bits. Everybody is making fun of everybody else. It all ends with a big standup gigs at Gotham in NYC. If he wasn't willing to get psychologically deep, it may be better to do a regular standup special.
