Is Overeating and Being Fat Ever Funny?
- POSTED ON: Apr 07, 2014

I think "Mean" humor is never funny. 
However, I admire and enjoy comedians who can poke fun at themselves and their own behaviors, while acknowledging and accepting their own Humanity. 

One of my favorite Comedians, John Pinette, recently died. 

The actor was age 50 and had been suffering from liver and heart disease. Did Obesity kill him? Would he have been unhealthy if he were thin?  If he were thin would he still have died?

Maybe…but we don't know all the contributing factors. Last August he had checked into rehab for a prescription pill addiction, so there's that complication. 

Drug addiction, even when combined with thinness, doesn't usually go hand in hand with longevity,... except for rare exceptions like: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

John Pinette was a genius when it came to joking about overeating and being fat without being petty and mean. Here's some of his humor.
