Editorial Reviews

Longtime actor and comic personality John Pinette lays the groundwork for a storied career in this debut comedy album, Show Me the Buffet, a live recording with an enthusiastic audience, featuring Pinette's signature self-deprecating humor in spades. Pinette's jokes are largely aimed at his own great girth, but even better, and bigger, is his attitude - he's totally, unflinchingly confident on stage, encouraging listeners with his booming, jovial voice to laugh with him, not at him. His performance is magnificent and irresistible - press play and see if you can resist staying tuned...I bet you can't!

Publisher's Summary

Don't think John Pinette is funny just because he's fat and is always talking about food. What's wrong with you? Don't you eat? Even if you don't tip the scale, you'll be able to find common ground with his hysterical routines that have landed him appearances on such important stages as Caroline's Comedy Hour, Showtime's Comedy All Stars, and An Evening at the Improv. Or perhaps you already know Pinette as the "fat mugging victim" on the last episode of Seinfeld.

For Adults Only: Explicit language. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.

It gets no better!

John Pinette is an absolute laugh riot in this performance! I only wish that he had a sequel. Purchase this and you will not be disappointed!

Hilarious! A Laugh a Minute

John Pinette is one of the funniest comedians going. This selection is a laugh a minute. John has a great delivery and keeps you laughing the whole time. Gotta Love Em! You will enjoy it.

Unsubtle and humourless

No subtle humour in this one. Just loud, raw, smutty, toilet humour that's not particularly funny. Not memorable and very missable.
