Editorial Reviews

After starring in the Broadway smash Hairspray, John Pinette returns in the hottest show at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Named "Stand-Up Comedian of the Year" by the American Comedy Awards, Pinette gained wide attention for his role in the Seinfeld finale and is a favorite The Tonight Show guest. With all-new material on everything from health food ("Salad's not food. Salad comes with food.") to family parties ("If you see a skinny person at the Pinette Family reunion, you say, 'And you are married to who?'"), Pinette has one of the most original voices in comedy today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belly Laughs Galore February 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
John Pinette is one of those comics that gets a laugh without profanity - and I mean laughs that bring teears! His facial expressions and use of his voice are truly priceless. I highly urge you to buy this if you want a few hours of GREAT entertainment!

4.0 out of 5 stars More (of the Same) by the Funniest Man on Earth January 22, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong, I think John Pinette is the Funniest Man on Earth. I saw the edited version of this DVD last night on Comedy Central. John is repeating too much material from his prior DVD and CD. Great stuff, very funny, but I say NAY NAY---you've done it before, John! You need more new material. I'm buying this anyway, but please retire "Free Willy" and "Fat Man at the Water Park"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid laughs January 25, 2007
John Pinette's stand-up is absolutely hilarious. My wife and I laughed solidly through his routine, and then through the DVD's special features. We were not familiar with his work, so we don't share the disappointment of his fans that know his routine. His delivery and his timing are outstanding. If you haven't seen (much of) Pinette, you're in for a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Pinette is simply hilarious! July 28, 2010
I first heard a John Pinette routine on a satellite radio comedy channel, and of the many comics that I had listened to there, John was the only one with which I was motivated to research further. I viewed some of his routines posted on YouTube, and as I thought, this man is refreshingly funny! I have purchased both of his DVDs, and as others have discovered, much of the material is repeated on both disks, though there are some noticeable differences. If you really like John's material, then you might want to have both DVDs to see how his material has changed, but in my opinion, the "I'm Starvin'!" DVD is the better of the two. It seems that in the several years between the release of each disk he has actually fine-tuned his material and delivery for greater effect (my absolute favorite routine on this DVD is "Touring the World" about looking for Italian food in can view it on YouTube: [...]). My children have seen both DVDs and they agree as well. You can tell that John is a creative talent because there is quite a bit of drama in his act (he performed in the Broadway production of "Hairspray" for two years as Edna Turnblad). Both the "I Say Nay Nay" and "I'm Starvin'!" DVDs have a featurette of his famous "Chinese Buffet" routine from early in his career, but neither is as good as some of the "Chinese Buffet" performances posted on YouTube. My favorite is posted here: [...]
...though he is older and has lost a little weight since that era. One thing to point out...John does use some profanity in his I'm Starvin act, not because his material is obscene, but more so to punctuate some of his humor (on par with a PG-13 movie, and he doesn't use the f-word). If you are uncomfortable with having your kids hear an occasional curse, then this disk may not be for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm still laughing 5 hours later September 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This guy is so funny this video is probably illegal in some states. I remember a bit he did way back in the day that played on Comedy Central in like a continuous loop, about Ny-Quil, "the snuffly, sneezy, sleepy, what-the-hell-am-I-doing-on=my=kitchen=floor medicine". I just watched "I'm starvin'" with friends and had to run to amazon now that I know his name, and get us a copy becuase the whole show, I mean the WHOLE SHOW, was so funny I thought I was going to pass out from laughing so hard, and I missed half of it from laughing. No other comedian has made me bust a gut for the entire show, not Margaret Cho, not Lewis Black, not any of my favorites. You NEED this dvd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Usual Pinette fair, good, but repackaged February 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I made the mistake of purchasing (2) John Pinette videos, "I'm Starvin" and "I Say Nay, Nay".
Both videos are funny. However, they're the same act ! I would have thought that Pinette would
have different material on these two videos. Big disappointment with that issue.

If you're going to buy one of these videos I would recommend "I'm Starvin". Very funny and
enjoyable enough to watch repeatedly. Looking forward to some 'new' stuff John !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the new material? January 28, 2007
After buying and really enjoying "I say Nay Nay" I was looking forward to a "new" DVD with "new" material. This is definitly not it! If you know his old jokes by heart you will barely bring up a chuckle on this DVD. I can't imagine the reason for releasing this. In addition, the audio mix could be better. The audience is louder than John's voice and it also get's a little lost in the room ambiance. Notice how far away he holds his microphone. Give us 100% new material on the next one John!
