Better Than Bitter Buddah
5 December 2012 | by britneyunreleasedSee all my reviews

I was able to see the sneak peak ala the official site when it was posted for only one day. Although not filed with celebrity comedians like 'Bitter Buddha', 'How Embarrassing' is a better doc. I found myself really warming up to ''J.J. Star'' the person as you see him face his trials and tribulations. His material is funnier than that of Eddie Pepitone, the comedian 'Bitter Buddha' was based on. There is minimal attention to drug use and his career as radio disc jockey but a little too much on why he is called ''J.J. Star''. The ending is very touching, almost sad to be honest. Although similar because of the obscure nature of the comedian subjects, 'How Embarrassing' is the clear cut winner over Bitter Buddha.
