John Pinette – Get outta’ da’ Line

If you are not familiar with John Pinette, do yourself a favor and watch this. He is really funny.

John Paul Pinette born on March 23, 1964 was an American actor, Broadway performer, and stand-up comedian. Pinette got a break when asked to tour with Frank Sinatra. Pinette was a regular guest on The Tonight Show and The View.

He toured the comedy club circuit beginning in the 1980s and appeared in cinema and on television. Besides stand-up, Pinette did impressions of The Chipmunks, Elvis Presley, Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, Hervé Villechaize (Tattoo fromFantasy Island), an Ewok, actor Marlon Brando (notably Brando’s role in The Godfather), as well as various ethnic accents. He occasionally sang, for example “Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz, and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” in stand-up routines.

John Pinette was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on March 23, 1964, and graduated from Malden Catholic High School in 1982. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 1986 with a degree in Accounting. He started a career in accounting, but on the advice of friends left to pursue a career in comedy.

Pinette was named Stand-Up Comedian of the Year by the American Comedy Awards in 1999 and received a Gemini Award nomination for his televised performance atMontreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2000. As of his death, he still held the record for the highest selling one person show in the history of Just for Laughs.

In 2007, Pinette performed at the 42nd annual MDA Jerry Lewis Telethon.

During his tour, Pinette recorded a Comedy Central special entitled “John Pinette: Still Hungry”. The taping took place at the Vic Theatre in Chicago. The world premiere of “John Pinette: Still Hungry” was on July 29, 2011, on Comedy Central.
