Storyline

After starring in the Broadway smash Hairspray, John Pinette (The Punisher, Revenge of the Nerds) returns in the hottest show at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Named "Stand-Up Comedian of the Year" by the American Comedy Awards, Pinette gained wide attention for his role as Howie the car-jacking victim in the Seinfeld finale and is a favorite guest on The Tonight Show. With all-new material on everything from health food ("Salad's not food. Salad comes with food.") to family parties ("If you see a skinny person at the Pinette Family reunion, you say, 'And you are married to who?'"), Pinette has one of the most original voices in comedy today.

Quotes

John Pinette: [about his having to wear pantyhose during his role as a woman on Broadway] Guys! We have our underwear 10, 12 years! Ladies just throw pantyhose out! I'd go through a crate of 'em a week! And the pantyhose rip for no reason! You just... *rip*. We have material that stops bullets and the pantyhose are ripping? It's built-in obsolescence! It's bullshit!

Thank goodness John Pinette is back!
30 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Although IMDb doesn't list it, John Pinette did a wonderful stand-up performance on television many years ago. In it, he did some memorable routines on dieting and Girl Scouts as well as a visit to a local Chinese buffet. Sadly, after achieving this fame in the late 80s-early 90s, he disappeared, somewhat, and only recently returned for a new stand-up routine entitled "I'M STARVIN'". In the intervening years, he appeared on a few sit-coms and apparently also worked on Broadway (playing Mrs. Turnblad in "Hairspray"). It was great to see him back and it was also great to see that this rotund comedian still was funny. Some acts disappear and when they reappear, they have lost their edge and just aren't funny. With Pinette, my entire family watched it and laughed throughout. Very funny and a very welcome return to the stage.
