American Eddie Pepitone's triumphant Fringe return examines his country's (as well as his own inner) crumbling. Pepitone's darkly hilarious rants and soaring neurotic imaginings paint a man at war with himself and an empire gone mad with cruelty and self-absorption. Fun for the whole family! (Not really.) Eddie's been seen on Community, Arrested Development, Conan, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chappelle's Show, House MD, and Old School opposite Will Ferrell. His comedy is chronicled in the award-winning documentary The Bitter Buddha. 'A must-see for any committed stand-up fan' (Scotsman). 'Tour-de-force' (Chortle.co.uk). ***** (Skinny).
