Eddie Pepitone is a stand-up and actor who started with Chicago City Limits in New York in the late ‘90s and quickly became part of the city’s comedy scene. He’s performed on Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and regularly on Marc Maron’s live WTFs in LA. You might recognize Eddie from season six of Last Comic Standing, as the cook on The Sarah Silverman Program or from his role in the film Old School. He also co-hosts a popular podcast called The Long Shot and has a daily comic strip video series called Puddin’. A few weeks ago we sat down with Eddie in his hotel room in midtown.
