About Eddie Pepitone

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, and Chappelle’s Show. Fans also might recognize Pepitone from his role in the hit comedy Old School or from his multiple award-winning short, Runyon: Just Above Sunset.

One Response to Washington Gridlock

    Hope you will have a good Ha’mas. I, myself, am cursing the darkness.

    Yesterday, shortly after it was leaked from the White House that they were willing to raise the cut-off for extending the tax cuts to $800,000 and that they were proposing a revised formula to reduce the Social Security COLA, your “fuehrer”, President Obama, blessed us all with a record breaking string of platitudes:

    “Averting this middle-class tax hike is not a Democratic responsibility or a Republican responsibility. With their votes, the American people have determined that governing is a shared responsibility between both parties. In this Congress, laws can only pass with support from Democrats and Republicans. And that means nobody gets 100 percent of what they want. Everybody has got to give a little bit, in a sensible way. We move forward together, or we don’t move forward at all.”

    Soooooo, everyone has got to give a little bit, except the rich.

    That came the day after his expectation lowering speech appointing Biden to lead the charge on reducing gun violence, in which he said “Even if we can only save one life, we have to take action”. One life? One? I mean, one?

    Anyway, you and your shows continue to be a highlight of my day. Don’t let the bastards wear you down.

    How about taking a plate of knish to Dore’s next roundtable. While they all have their mouths full you can “let them have it”.
