Seinfeld fans probably recognize John Pinette as the carjacking victim who the gang refused to help in the series finale.
Sadly, the self-depricating comedian was found dead in a Pittsburgh hotel room over the weekend. He was 50-years-old.
Doctors say Pinette died of natural causes.
Pinette’s weight was a constant source of material in his standup acts, including for his specials Show Me the Buffett, I'm Starvin'! and Still Hungry.
His agent Nick Nuciforo explained that John was working on another standup project that would have toured throughout the U.S. and Canada. Nick spoke about the loss of his client, saying:
"He should be celebrated for the amazing comedian he was.”
Rest in peace, John.
