Comic rages against pre-meal leafy foodstuff.

Comedian John Pinette doesn't need to look too hard for his stand-up material. He pretty much grabs stories from his life. "It's the funniest thing I can think of," he says. "And for some reason, people enjoy seeing me lose my cherub-like demeanor." Everything sets him off — from the French to food. "I went to a nutritionist, and he tells me, 'The good news is you can have all the salad you want,'" says Pinette. "What's the bad news? He wanted me to eat salad as the food. Salad's not food. Salad comes with the food. It's a promissory note that food will soon arrive." Pinette performs at Hilarities 4th Street Theatre (2035 East Fourth Street) at 7:30 tonight. Tickets range from $25 to $35. Call 216-241-7425 or visit www.pickwickandfrolic.com for more information.
Sun., Nov. 4, 7:30 p.m., 2007
