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.

I thought he was very funny.

I have watched other commedians and they have to use much of the "F" word and they need it to make their point for a laugh .

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.

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.

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.

If you are looking for a very good laugh with a clean presentation
, this is it . I hope Sebastian, keeps the next performance at this level. If there was 5+ in stars this is it. My God was this funny. I "strongly" suggest you get the word out on Sebastian. HBO & SHOWTIME do you hear me. I have watched other commedians and they have to use much of the "F" word and they need it to make their point for a laugh . Not really needed with Sebastian comedy -maybe used it one time, but innocent enough that it fit right in with the presentation, and not really part of this DVD performance.
I loved "What's Wrong With People" --and I this is one you can guarantee not to be disappointed. Spend the money watch it --laugh--- and when you down and out and you need a pick me up --watch it again.

Sooo funny! My family has seen him a few times at different comedy clubs - he is the funniest comedian I have ever seen! What a talented man. What I love about his comedy is that it's pretty clean stuff - it's not vulgar or filled with profanity. Just good clean comedy that everyone needs to see! And go back and watch his other stuff too!
