John Pinette Im Starvin: After starring in the Broadway smash Hairspray, John Pinette 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 in the Seinfeld finale and is a favorite The Tonight Show guest. With all-new material on everything from health food (Salads 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.
