John Pinette net worth: John Pinette was an American actor and stand-up comedian who had a net worth of $100 thousand. He toured the comedy club circuit in the 1980s and often offered up his size and big appetite as topics for his comedy routine. He was named the “funniest male stand-up comic of the year” at the American Comedy Awards in 1999 and also appeared in films like Duets, My 5 Wives, The Punisher, Revenge of the Nerds III and IV, as well as appearing in episodes of television shows like ALF and also the series finale of Seinfeld. He was born in Boston Massachusetts on March 23, 1964 and graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1986 using a diploma in Accounting. He was urged by friends to pursue a career in humor and got his first break when he was requested to tour with Frank Sinatra. He was also a regular guest on The Tonight Show and The View. He perished in a Pittsburgh hotel at age 50, just three months after he told his devotees that he was postponing his national standup tour because of health issues. Pinette have been suffering from liver as well as heart disease, and no autopsy was completed because both the medical examiner and Pinette’s individual physician signed off on the cause of death being a pulmonary embolism. He had a reputation among his friends and fellow comics as a brilliant, amazingly amusing, kind and generous guy.
