Welcome back, John! After two years of dancing in high heels on Broadway starring as Edna Turnblad in "Hairspray", John is finally back on the comedy stage. Making Lite of Myself is John's follow-up to the uproarious and extremely successful Show Me the Buffet which, years later, continues to attract fans. When asked to describe his stand-up, John Pinette says, "I talk about my life. It is the funniest thing I can think of. For some reason, people enjoy seeing me lose my cherub-like demeanor".Track Listing:

John Pinette's second album stays pretty solidly in tried and tested territory for this affable comedian, whose self-deprecating and sarcastic ruminations on weight compose the bulk of this boisterous performance.
Pinette is a likable, jovial guy, whose jokes are made largely at his own expense, and whose attitude seems to be, "Laugh with me", always, rather than at anyone else. Pinette's favorite subject might be heaviness, but his tone is, in contrast, light and airy and his material is accessible and entertaining. Listening to Making Lite of Myself feels like a casual hangout with a good friend - or at least, a good friend who knows how to get big laughs!
"In a consistently funny set, Friesen sacrifices his own pride to gain the audience's trust and ultimately score a ton of laughs. As a married man and a father of two, he can't help but tackle the things most pressing on his mind. His segues are so seamless you'll barely notice a wrinkle in his act when one minute he's ranting about his college misadventures, likening it to a giant poker game, especially when tuition rises each year...and the next minute he's outlining the pitfalls of marriage."
