When I was a younger, child-like version of myself, I heard a John Pinette bit that stuck with me for the next year or so. No matter where I went I told the joke to people, family, friends, my butcher (who didn’t have a butcher when they were 13?) I have no real idea why that Pinette bit stuck with me so long, and now many moons later, I vaguely remember the setup of the joke and haven’t really followed Pinette’s material since.
Fast forward to 2007, I randomly caught Pinette’s stand-up special I’m Starvin’ and did a rush of comedy inspiration come back. 13 year old me was pretty damn psyched. So in keeping up the need to make child me happy, here are some preview clips from John Pinette’s new stand-up special, Still Hungry which premieres on Comedy Central next Friday at 11pm.
