New Release: John Pinette: Still Hungry DVD

John Pinette: Still Hungry scene

No surprise: John Pinette is Still Hungry.

Big-boy comedian John Pinette’s stand-up comedy special John Pinette: Still Hungry was released on DVD on Aug. 2, 2011. Entertainment One priced the disc at $19.98.

A Comedy Central television performance taped at the Vic Theatre in Chicago last December, Still Hungry premiered on TV on Comedy Central in July.

Still Hungry serves as a follow-up of sorts to Pinette’s previous Comedy Central special, 2007’s I’m Starvin’!, which is still available on DVD.

Clocking in at some 85 minutes, Pinette’s new set is one of the lengthiest we’ve see from a stand-up in recent years. The comedian’s observational comedy includes lots of talk about his weight and food, particularly that of the Asian variety. It’s no surprise that Pinette has a thing for Chinese buffets…

The Still Hungry DVD contains a handful of featurettes as bonus materials. Here’s a list of them:

  • “Tour of Chicago”
  • “Looking for John Pinette”
  • “Worst Snowstorm”
  • “In the Make-up Chair”
  • “Fans”
  • “Photo Shoot”
  • “#1 Fan”
