Description

A short compilation of one of my favorite comedic performers and fellow Malden native John Pinette, who died April 5, 2014. I was in 8th grade when I saw Hairspray on Broadway. He played Edna Turnblad, &, without a shred of doubt in my mind, made that show even more fun & hilarious to me. Anytime I saw his stand-up comedy, I'd wipe the tears from my eyes, & find a new pair of underwear. The only thing that was bigger than his comedic prowess was his generosity. I raise a glass and tip a hat to you John, & if there's an afterlife, I'll see you at the buffet! Song used - Lelianna's Song by Inon Zur.
