Comedian John Pinette was found dead in his Pittsburgh hotel room Saturday night. He was only 50 years old.

He died of natural causes and had been suffering from heart and liver disease. His doctor signed off on the cause of death so no autopsy will be performed.

As a comedian, you probably know him best from his classic bit about annihilating a Chinese buffet.

“You here four hours!!!”

(Jump to the 1:50 mark.)

Others may remember him as the carjacking victim in the series finale of “Seinfeld“. He was the guy that Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer refused to help, which led to them being arrested for violating the “Good Samaritan Law.”
