Comedian Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy. Hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Eckhart Tolle. Eddie is a force of nature on stage, switching back and forth 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 Pepitone. He’s one of a kind and a favorite among fellow comedians and die heard comedy fans alike.
In addition to his stand-up skills, Eddie Pepitone is a stand-out comic/character actor. Pepitone began his comedy career in New York City, quickly becoming a regular on the scene. He appeared regularly on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. His other numerous television appearances include Chappelle’s Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, King of Queens, Last Comic Standing, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Sarah Silverman Program. Pepitone recently released a Comedy Album entitled "A Great Stillness" and has a Documentary about his life coming later this year called "The Bitter Buddha."
Jake Weisman is a comedian in Los Angeles, CA. He has two podcasts, one called Cats and Pussy and another one called The Morning After...Podcast. He also has a sketch group called WOMEN. He loves cats and he thinks people are attractive.
Though he would remain one of the comedy world's best-kept secrets through the later half of the 1990s, improvisational comic-turned-actor David Koechner later made a successful transition from SNL and Late Night With Conan O'Brien funnyman to supporting feature player roles when word of his talent spread, thanks to stellar supporting parts in such wide-release films as A_Guy_Thing and Anchorman. The Tipton, MO, native studied political science at the University of Missouri, with a subsequent career in the family business (manufacturing turkey coops) narrowly averted by a post-college move to Chicago. It was there that Koechner attempted to master his comic skills under the tutelage of improv master Del_Close, with further studies at the Windy City's ImprovOlympic cementing the skills of the up-and-coming talent.
A subsequent stint at Chicago's Second City Theater led to Koechner's lucky break when he was whisked away by SNL creator Lorne_Michaels to become a player in the long-running weekly comedy mainstay. Though he would remain with SNL for merely one season, Koechner continued to impress on the small screen as a performer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in the 1996-1997 season. As his reputation continued to grow due to appearances on such popular shows as Mad_About_You and Dharma & Greg, Koechner also made an impression in features thanks to small but memorable roles in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Man on the Moon, and My Boss's Daughter. Though he would continue to work in minor capacity on the small screen, Koechner seemed to be focusing on features at this point in his career, with a turn as a chauvinistic sportscaster in the 2004 Will Ferrell comedy Anchorman offering what was perhaps his most substantial feature performance to date.
RON LYNCH is considered one of the forefathers of alternative comedy. Ron was part of the Boston comedy scene that spawned such comics as Steven Wright, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat Goldthwait, Marc Maron, and others featured in the documentary, "When Comedy Was King". Ron studied theater in New York, and improvisation at Second City Chicago. Presently, he is the host/producer of the popular "Tomorrow!" variety show, now in it's tenth year, which occurs every Saturday at midnight. His act is a blend of characters, improvisation, sounds, and other stuff. His credits include The Sarah Silverman Program (he played all the doctors), Conan, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, and several sitcoms. His voice can be heard on Bob's Burgers, Adventure Time, Dr. Katz, Tim and Eric, and the cult favorite, Home Movies, where he was Mr. Lynch. Movie credits include Smashed, Murder in the First, several independents, and many short movies, including a few produced with Louie CK. He plays drums in two bands, both mostly comics, still hasn't done his taxes, and will be performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland in August!
