John Pinette, a Malden, MA native and a terrific comedian featured many times on The Shark's 'Ten After Laughter' comedy segment, passed away this weekend at the age of 50.

Probably best known for his role on the Seinfeld series finale, he had many hilarious routines on dieting, Nyquil and of course Chinese buffets. On a personal note, I've interviewed him a couple of times and he was just as nice as he was funny which is saying a lot.
