John Pinette: I'm Starvin' - 2006

"John Pinette: I'm Starvin'" - 2006
Dir. by ? - 1 hr. 12 min.

by Clayton Hollifield

The difference between this special and John Caparulo's is that John Pinette has nailed his character, and has worked through more than enough material to fill a special.  I usually find comics that rely heavily on fat jokes pretty rough viewing, and this was no exception, but Pinette is also a very polished, very funny comedian (despite my reservations about the subject matter).  This is funny stuff from a guy who's persona I usually wouldn't care much for.  In lesser hands, I probably would have turned it off.
