(CNN) — Comedian John Pinette was found dead in a Pittsburgh hotel room Saturday, the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office said.
Pinette, 50, died of natural causes stemming from “a medical history he was being treated for,” the medical examiner’s spokesman said. An autopsy will not be done since his personal doctor signed the death certificate.
Pinette toured the comedy club circuit for more than two decades, but he may be best known for his role in the series finale of “Seinfeld” in 1998. His character, Howie, was a carjacking victim in the last episode.
