Editorial Reviews

'What s Wrong with People?' asks Sebastian Maniscalco, as he hilariously tries to bridge the Italian-American Old World he grew up in with the contemporary frenetic world we all live in today. Reminiscent of a young Jerry Seinfeld, Sebastian constantly challenges his audience to recognize the absurdities of everyday life in this original, highly relatable stand-up comedy tour-de-force. Bonus Features: Getting to the Stage, Sebastian's Fans, Photo Shoot, Pictures with Fans.

Format: DVD
I understand that comedy is subjective. Along with music, it is one of the harder categories of entertainment to judge because, oftentimes, it just comes down to a matter of taste. But comedy DVDs have an additional stigma that other DVD choices don't face. They have less replay value. If you are a fan of a particular comedian and you follow them, you have to expect that you will hear some material that they've used successfully in the past. The most common complaint I see leveled at comedy DVDs are that the jokes aren't fresh. That's right, folks--every time a comedian steps up to the stage, his entire act isn't going to be newly devised and original. And if you were going to tape a show for the general public to buy, wouldn't you use jokes and material that have proven popular and successful? I would!

That said, I'm a fan of comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. In his latest comedy endeavor "What's Wrong With People?," he does cover a number of topics that will be familiar to those that have followed his career. The entire set is dedicated to the daily annoyances of living in the modern world. And just about everything annoys Maniscalco, and rightly so. It's an absurd world we live in, and making fun of ourselves and our peculiarities provides plenty of comedic material. As I said, the themes that he employs over this 75 minute concert are quite familiar but Maniscalco executes the jokes with precision. I have found oftentimes that comedians will lead with their strongest material, but there tends to be a middle section that lags. I found this to be evenly paced and quite funny throughout.

In truth, I don't know that "What's Wrong With People?" is the most uproarious performance that I've seen from Maniscalco. In this case, though, I don't know that it matters.

Three months ago, I purchased this Sebastian Maniscalco dvd for my 87 old mother. I was looking for a stand up comedy act along the lines of Pat Cooper who my mother greatly enjoyed. I had never heard of Sebastian Maniscalco before I saw his dvd on Amazon. It's hard to find good standup comedy acts these days that are PG or even PG-13 rated that would be appropriate, i.e. "clean" for "older" audiences. After reading some of the reviews and for around $10, I figured I would at least give Sebastian's "What's Wrong With People" a try.

Three months ago when my mom and my sisters sat down to watch this Sebastian dvd, my mom was working and driving and continuing to lead an active and productive life. She enjoyed her time with her 3 children and several grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also loved old movies and stand up comedy acts and she absolutely loved Sebastian's "What's Wrong With People". She must have watched it literally a hundred times and would laugh hysterically each time as if it was the first time she had ever seen it. My entire family would watch along with her and besides seeing the joy it brought to mom, it was also a huge hit with all of us. We probably can recite most of his performance verbatim.

Sebastian's dvd turned out to be the best medicine mom could ever get. She was soon after diagnosed with cancer and three days ago it took her life. She was quoting lines from Sebastian's dvd right up to the time she was unable to speak. Sebastian will never know what his dvd meant to all of us and the joy he brought my mother in her final days. We have emailed him to let him know how much joy he brought our family seeing mom so happy but I'm sure we're just one of thousands of emails he receives so it is understandable that we have not heard back yet.

Saw this on Showtime recently and couldn't stop laughing. It's been a long time since I've seen really good stand-up! Also, nice to watch a comedian that doesn't require me to isolate my children in a sound-proof room.

It was through his half hour special on Comedy Central that I first discovered Sebastian Maniscalco. It's tricky for me to describe his humor (beyond the words "witty and sarcastic"), but between his Italian/Brooklyn accent and the way he tells a story always leaves me crying with laughter. He's not overly raunchy like Dane Cook, nor is he super mellow like Demetri Martin. He's not a total dork like Brian Regan, nor is he a country bumpkin like the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. This is a guy who seems to have been born and raised on the city streets--just trying to play it cool and keep up with the times, while also lamenting over the fact that the world has changed drastically since he was a kid--for better or worse.

In this special, Sebastian talks about a wide range of topics, from growing up in an Italian household, to impressing dates at dance clubs, to the dualistic dance of deciding who's going to pick up the bill at a restaurant. His stories are completely relatable, while also pointing out the weirdness and stupidity of both modern technology and people in general. Some of my favorite bits include his struggle to teach his elderly dad how to send an email; him pondering the thought process of how Michael Jackson designed his weird stage outfits, and how the movie "Purple Rain" changed his life.

To say any more would be to spoil the whole show. You'll just have to give him a watch and see for yourself...then lose your breath from laughing. It's a shame, as well as a mystery, as to why his name isn't as well known as the above mentioned comedians, because he's arguably just as funny; maybe even funnier. It's time he got the recognition he deserves. Give his specials (including this one) a listen; you won't be disappointed.
