The Parental Advisory logo on John Pinette ‘s Show Me the Buffet is a minuscule little thing in the bottom left hand corner of the cover for this stand-up comedy CD. That is quite appropriate, really. This new, unedited version of Pinette’s classic first CD contains more or less 5 f@cks, 6 sh!ts, and a g-d or two. Nothing to write a nasty letter about.
Show Me the Buffet – Parental Advisory version also features about 3 or 4 minutes worth of “new” material. This is segue stuff between the longer routines. Though funny, it is not worth reinvesting if you already have this stand-up comedy CD -and you should.
This re-release also proves the uselessness of blue language when the material is strong. The parental advisory language does nothing here to enhance already solid material.
A few people dismissed John Pinette as just another fat jokes comic. Repeated listenings of this CD prove otherwise. Pinette is a fabulous storyteller whose schtick is that of a jovial guy put upon by the world.
Show Me the Buffet includes superb routines like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Buffet and The Water Park, The Slide, & The Tube, to name but a few. The only funny but dated piece is The Great Meat Recall but this comedy CD is more than 10 years old so there you go.
The one caveat I have about this John Pinette stand-up comedy CD is aside from the itty bitty Parental Advisory logo there is nothing to distinguish it from the original clean version. It would have been nice to make it a bit more different. Then again, Uproar! Probably thought a different cover would make people think this was a new release and they would be bummed and so on and so on.
