Sebastian Maniscalco Returns to Chicago
One of the hottest up & coming comedians in the country, Sebastian Maniscalco, returns home to Chicago for 6 shows at the Chicago Theatre over Thanksgiving weekend. Sebastian was born in Chicago & raised in Arlington Heights before he moved to California and began his stand-up career. He waited tables at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills while performing comedy in local bars & bowling alleys. During his dinner break at the Four Seasons, he would drive to the famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard to perform a 15-minute set then drive back to the hotel to finish his shift. His breakout performance came during fellow Chicagoan Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights – Hollywood to the Heartland. Since then, he has done three 60-minute stand-up comedy specials (2 were featured on Showtime) and has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Recently, he was a guest on Jerry Seinfeld’s popular web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee which catapulted him into the spotlight.
On October 13, Sebastian was included in People Magazine’s annual “Ones to Watch” which labeled him as the new Louis CK. Sebastian reacted, “He’s very very talented, so it’s flattering. I’ve been doing this for 18 years, bouncing around clubs across the country and putting in my time doing hard work. I guess people are kind of responding to it.” Maniscalco is noted for his physical brand of comedy and is very animated while telling jokes/stories, often about food or his Sicilian upbringing. Sebastian will perform at the Chicago Theatre November 25 thru 27 with 2 shows each day. Gold Coast Tickets has seats available for all shows, grab yours today by clicking here.
