    He was found in a Pittsburgh hotel room and determined to have died of natural causes, a spokesperson for the Medical Examiner's office in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania told THR. Schapiro stated that the cause of death was a pulmonary embolism.
    The comedian was currently on a live tour that had set dates from April to June across venues in the U.S. and Canada.
    Pinette's film credits include roles in Junior (1994), The Punisher (2004) and The Last Godfather (2010). He starred in several comedy specials including Still Hungry (2011) and I'm Starvin (2006) and was a staple at Canada's Just for Laughs festival.
    On television, he appeared in the series Vinnie & Bobby, Parker Lewis Can't Lose and High Tidebefore his role in the last Seinfeld episode in 1998.



    This is heartbreaking. I loved him.

    wow 50 is way too young to die.

    His stand up was awesome. Just really fun stuff making fun of his own weight.

    The weight had to have something to do with his death. Poor man.

    Mine too. I think I've mentioned before that my husband had worked with him a little and that he was truly just the nicest (and funniest) man.
