Attention, Laughspinners who love free, quality comedy stuff! We’re giving away a download of the brilliant documentary The Bitter Buddha about comedian Eddie Pepitone. Featuring the likes of Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and many more of your favorite comics, the film (by Steven Feinartz) explores the hyper-active and tortured mind of the veteran comic. You’ll follow him at home, onstage and everywhere in between.
So, how do you win? Well, we announced the contest at the start of the latest episode of The Laughspin Podcast – which you can hear on iTunes, Stitcher or SoundCloud – but we’ll lay it down for you here as well.
You’ll have to record yourself ranting for up to one minute (no longer!) about the thing in the world of comedy your most excited about this week—and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Get passionate, creative, stupid—whatever. Maybe you’re excited to see a comedy flick (or already saw a great movie) or you’re stoked NBC renewed Community, or you just saw an amazing live stand-up show or you’re a comic and you wrote the best joke ever. It could be anything related to comedy– anything at all.
We’ll play our favorite rants on the next Laughspin Podcast and declare our favorite the winner. We’ll then coordinate with said winner to make sure he or she gets their prize. You could check out Eddie on The Longshot Podcast on the AllThingsComedy network, watch the trailer of The Bitter Buddha at the film’s official site and follow Eddie on Twitter at @EddiePepitone.
