New England Comedy Guide
A Tribute To

John Paul Pinette
(March 23, 1964 – April 5, 2014) 


The New England Comedy Guide proudly pays tribute to someone who was by every measure a working comedian. He spent years touring and working with many top acts. Though he was never the biggest star in the sky, most comedy enthusiasts would recognize him by sight and smile.


He appeared in a large number of films and TV shows. Again, like so many professional comedians, never achieving the desired level of success.

He was also extremely popular in Canada and performed several tours as well as being highly sought after at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal..
The real key to understanding him isn't to wax philosophical about him or tell stories. He represents the comedian class. He worked hard, lived his life to make people laugh and the world was better because he was here.
