Award-winning stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco brings his unique brand of physical and quick-witted observational comedy to The Colosseum stage on Friday, January 12 at 9 pm on his Stay Hungry Tour.
Selling out in venues across North America, Maniscalco appeals to a wide swath of audiences with skeptical observations of daily life from his take on selfies vs. ‘lonelies’ and online restaurant reviews. He provokes uncontrollable laughter with his signature style comedy that blends high-energy physical act-outs and hilariously demonstrative facial expressions. He invites his audiences to take a look at their own habits through the lens of his old-world, Italian-American upbringing, shredding modern-day society, where everyone and everything is suspect.
One of comedy’s fastest rising new stars and A-List comedians, Maniscalco was named Just For Laughs Stand Up Comedian of the Year, selected for People Magazine’s annual “Ones to Watch” package and his hit special Why Would You Do That? was declared Showtime’s most successful comedy/variety special premiere in 2016.
His accomplishments also include a wildly popular The Pete and Sebastian Show comedy podcast; an appearance on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee as well as roles in feature films The House, starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler; Cruise, directed by Rob Siegel; and the animated feature Nut Job 2.
