Featuring Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, and other comedians who have been amused and bemused by Eddie Pepitone, The Bitter Buddha paints Pepitone as a man at war with himself. This humorous documentary takes an unconventional look at an unconventional man as he struggles with his career, his past and the world around him. Original Animation, stand-up comedy and engaging interviews with Galifianakis, Oswalt, Silverman, Maron and others help us gain insight into the life of a beloved career comedian known as “the guitarist that all the other guitarists go to see."
