Spirited comedian Mario Cantone can’t get enough of Lidia Bastianich’s cooking.  This morning during an interview on the PIX11 Morning News, his appearance was upstaged by a couple of pasta and risotto dishes which were sent over from Lidia’s restaurant Felidia’s.

Never completely turning away from the food, anchor Frances Rivera and reporter Lisa Mateo went on to ask Cantone about his latest standup gigs and his run-in with the President.  However, he was cut off before he got through his entire Obama story.  …And let’s just say…he wasn’t happy.   Afterall, what sort of media outlet doesn’t let its guest tell his entire story?  I guess he’ll have to come back and finish it.
