Sebastian Maniscalco, Chicago’s sensational and multi talented comedian is bringing his indelible comedy to Riverside Theater!
Sebastian Maniscalco was born in Chicago in 1973 and is a comedian, actor, voice actor, author, and producer. He began his career in comedy by performing in bars and bowling alleys while working as a waiter at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. He went on to have more than a dozen sold out performances in New York City’s comedy circuit and 3 comedy specials. He’s appeared on Comedy Central and, along with Ahmed Ahmed, John Caparulo, and Bret Ernst, was featured in Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days and 30 Nights – Hollywood to the Heartland. He’s also been on Russell Peters' Best Night Ever, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Jay Leno Show, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Conan. The New York Times has distinguished him as comic with his “own kind of panache” and according to the Dallas Observer noted, “Much of the material for his three comedy specials and tours comes from his astonishment with modern society’s unspoken rules and the juxtaposition of current culture against his upbringing in a hardworking, 'half-Sicilian, half-Italian' immigrant family.” Sebastian is the 2016 Just for Laughs Stand Up Comedian of the Year and was nominated for an American Comedy Award for Best Club Comedian.
