    I loved his routine about Herve Villechaize as Batman.

    Back when late night TV had a bunch of stand-up recordings, he was always one of my favorites.

    Sad to hear this, he was probably in my top five for favorite comics. Got to see him in a double bill with Kathleen Madigan at my local casino a few years ago and it was a very entertaining show. I'll always enjoy the Chinese buffet bit.

    The author of this is a friend of mine. He writes a very nice tribute to Pinette.

    Saw him live a few years back. He was outstanding.

    I saw him when he was touring for Show Me The Buffet. He was hilarious.

    I thought at one point he had lost a ton of weight.

    He did lose a ton of weight. As far as I know, he didn't put it back on.

    I imagine the weight from his earlier days may have contributed (at least somewhat) to his death.

    I've seen Ralphie May and Pinette in concert and while May is much bigger than Pinette was, even at his biggest, Pinette always looked like every step was a struggle and that was about 15 years ago.

    I've seen two headline that have said, 'Seinfeld actor found dead in PA hotel'
