I met Eddie years ago in NY… we did a Comedy Central pilot together, and, he gave one of the most explosively hysterical performances Women Who Write has ever witnessed They call him the Bitter Buddha, a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles, and Eckart Tolle. Eddie’s had recurring roles on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and has appeared on The Life and Times of Tim, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Sarah Silverman Program, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, Chappelle’s Show, Love, The Goldberg’s, Maron, Community and Brooklyn Nine-Nine to name a bunch. Eddie was also featured in the film, Old School. An accomplished dramatic actor, Eddie appeared on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, The Beat, and Now and Again. First and foremost a stand-up comic, Eddie appears regularly at The Improv, Caroline’s on Broadway, Largo at the Coronet, and both the LA and NY Upright Citizens Brigade Theaters. A Great Stillness, Eddie's first Live Comedy Album was recently released, and his, In Ruins- Live in Brooklyn, can currently be seen on Netflix. I was surprised by Eddie's thoughtful, spiritual, vulnerable willingness to go deep in our conversation. And, of course, he's hysterical. I adore this wild, funny man.
