John Pinette, a stand-up comic from Pittsburgh who was known for his funny jokes about himself and his love of food, was found dead in a hotel on Saturday. He was 50 years old.
Pinette was a well-known and liked comedian in Pittsburgh, and his death is a loss for the city. He was a great artist with a unique sense of humor that made people laugh. He will be missed very much.
What is John Pinette’s Cause Of Death?
On Monday, the office of the Allegheny County medical examiner revealed that the body of comedian John Pinette was found in a Pittsburgh hotel room on Saturday. Pinette, who was 50, died of natural causes linked to “a medical history he was being treated for,” according to a representative for the medical examiner.
The doctor who took care of Pinette said that she died of a lung embolism, but no autopsy was done. He had had problems with his stomach and heart in the past.
Since his private doctor signed the death document, an autopsy won’t be needed. Pinette did stand-up comedy for more than twenty years, but his part in the last episode of “Seinfeld” in 1998 may have made him popular. In the last show, his character, Howie, had his car stolen.
Larry Schapiro, who had been Pinette’s lifelong manager, said on Monday that the musician was “clean and sober” at the time of his death, even though his addictions had taken a “physical toll” on him in the past.
Pinette’s weight has gone from 450 pounds to 250 pounds in the past two years. Schapiro said that the comics he was making were called “They Call Me Slim” and were based on how much weight he had lost.
His manager told him his opening line: “You know how they say in every fat person there’s a skinny person waiting to come out? Well, mine came out, and mine was fat.”
“Earlier this year, Pinette announced to his Twitter followers that he would be taking a hiatus from his profession because he was “physically spent” after dropping a lot of weight and undergoing several minor procedures.”
“Unfortunately, I didn’t give myself enough time to heal this past fall and it has caught up with me, he admitted. However, I am recovering well and will return to the stage as soon as feasible.”

John Pinette’s Impressive Career
Pinette, who was born and raised in Boston, quit his successful job as an accountant in the 1980s to focus on stand-up. As he went on to tour with Frank Sinatra and became a regular guest on The Tonight Show and The View, he became known for making jokes about how fat he was.
He has been in many movies, including Junior, Dear God, Duets, The Punisher (with Thomas Jane and John Travolta), and The Last Godfather (2010). One of his most famous parts was Howie, the fat guy who got his car stolen on the last episode of Seinfeld in 1998.
In 2000, Pinette was nominated for a Gemini Award for his television set at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. This set had already won him the title of Stand-Up Comedian of the Year from the American Comedy Awards in 1999.
In 2004, Pinette started playing Edna Turnblad in a touring production of Hairspray. In 2005, she took over the part on Broadway and stayed in it until May 28, 2006.
In 2004, some of Pinette’s stand-up acts were turned into an animated show called Shorties Watchin’ Shorties for Comedy Central. Still, Hungry was shot during John Pinette’s 2010 stand-up tour, and it was first shown on Comedy Central.
Pinette was going to do a live comedy tour of the United States and Canada from April to June. His next show was going to be at a club in California called Ontario Improv. He had to postpone a tour earlier this year so he could have surgery to help him lose weight. In 2013, he had to cancel a number of shows because he was getting help for his prescription drug abuse.
