Enrique Pinti (born October 7, 1939 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine actor and comedian.

As a humorist, he performs stand-up shows with long monologues on Argentine politics and history, speaking at an extremely fast pace and resorting to a mix of common swearwords and elaborate insults to qualify notorious examples of immorality or corruption. The monologues are interrupted by interspersed musical segments. Though his stance is not impartial or unbiased, Pinti displays historical knowledge beyond the common traditional themes, so these shows are arguably an alternative source of learning about Argentina's past and present troubles. A number of his productions, such as Salsa Criolla in the early 1990s and Candombe Nacional, more recently, were among the most successful in the Argentine theatre.

Pinti has also starred in a number of Argentine films, in satirical as well as tragic roles. Some of the most notable have been in Carlos Galettini's Juan que reía (1976), Alejandro Doria's Esperando la carroza (1985), Eduardo Mignogna's Flop (1990), Alberto Lecchi's Perdido por perdido (1993), Carlos Saura's Tango (1998), and in María Victoria Menis' Arregui, la noticia del día (2001).[1]
