City Steam's Brew Ha Ha Presents: Buddy Fitzpatrick - He was a regular on The Sopranos

with Claudia Stavola

Philadelphia may have been where Buddy Fitzpatrick was born, but it was in a Philadelphia Comedy Club where he came to life. And as any true Philiadelphian, he now lives in New Jersey.

Buddy's stand-up made him a regular on Comedy Central with appearances on ABC and A&E.

Buddy can be seen in the Damon Wayans' film, Harlem Aria, and in The Business of Strangers, starring Julia Stiles and Stockard Channing.

His television credits include HBO's "Sopranos." Buddy has written, produced and performed his biographical play "Sides" at various NYC theatres.

Coming from a family of irrational lunatics, and having low self-esteem (but not low enough to strip)—I realized that I’d rather laugh than cry…and that lots of Catholic women marry closeted gay men (What? Where did that come from?).

I think like a guy, I joke like a guy, and I look like an x-ray when my shirt’s off. My comedy does not aim to please or offend any particular group. It’s comedy for people who just “get it”. My inspiration comes from never fitting in, disdain for peoples’ robotic interests in life. They’re also the people who gasp in horror when somebody uses the word “fat” to describe a co-worker…the same co-worker that said white person never e-vites to happy hour because “I didn’t realize she wasn’t in my contacts list”.

In addition to performing all over the East Coast, I also VERY briefly co-hosted the radio show “What’s Your Problem” with veteran comedians Rev. Bob Levy and Eric McMahon.
