Eddie Pepitone is not an unknown comic. He has been in the game for a long time, and nobody who lives in the world of comedy doesn't know who he is. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for regular people. But with the feature length documentary "Bitter Buddha" (2012) and now his newest special, he's obviously working on that.
As for the rest of the special, it is absolutely beautifully shot. There is a certain rhythm to the way Pepitone delivers his jokes (yes, I'm using jazz terminology), and each shot flows perfectly in sync with his performance. The special was shot at The Bell House in Brooklyn which is an equally beautiful location.
The special is available on Netflix, and you should watch it. You don't have to, though. I'm not the boss of you.
