Comedian John Pinette doesn't stray from the issues Americans are keen to, including, of course, food. With stand-up special titles like "Show Me the Buffet," "I'm Starvin'" and his latest, "Still Hungry," it's pretty easy to see where Pinette's comedic priorities lie. With jokes about veganism, bacon, Chinese buffets and even touching on obesity, Pinette has a loud-mouthed bluster and a relatable passion for things that taste delicious. Not to be pigeonholed, he is also a gifted impressionist, ranging from Marlon Brando in "The Godfather" to Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings," and he starred as Edna Turnblad in the Broadway musical "Hairspray.'' Above all, he just wants to keep it simple. As his Twitter bio says: "I talk about my life, it's the funniest thing I can think of."
