Sebastian Maniscalco returns home to Chicago to perform in front of a live sold-out audience in this all-new comedy event. With his inimitable delivery, he burns modern-day society through the lens of his old-world Italian-American upbringing. No topic is off-limits - but perhaps we all should be just a little embarrassed.
Absolutely brilliant and some of the most relatable solid genius comedy I've ever seen and I have obsessively watched every any any comedian my entire life. He is for sure one of the greats!!! Selflessly I hope everyone gets to enjoy Sebastian's mind. My gf and I watch him over and over. His subtle body language and eye movement cues and uniquely animated movements have brought so much joy to us!!! Thank you SEbMan!!! We can't wait to see him live.
If You like Sebastion's first 2 comedy specials You'll love this! It's more of the same type of humor but all new material. Sebastion's known for his "I hate people" approach and he gives plenty of great examples in this show. I laughed all through the concert!
Sebastian Maniscalco's standup makes me laugh out loud. Cutting provolone with a very sharp toe nail. Who thinks of that? He's a riot. Maniscalco has managed to make being old-school Italian and OCD very funny. His facial expressions, gestures and everyday observations about life are simply hilarious. That mouth. No, I don't appreciate the expletives. But they're few and far between. He's so much funnier them. A good show.
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 with a hard working, Italian family, to the ups and downs of being married, to the struggle of ordering a burrito at Chipolte. 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 family's solution to getting rid of household pests; his stance on airport security, and how to get rid of burglars via a bow and arrow.
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.
Comedy is very hard to write .... I did not know this comedian and decided to trust the reviews on Amazon ... Best thing I have ever done and Sebastian I know you don't like reviews but am writing this one for you ... This is one of the best shows I have seen.... Being from the Mediterranean myself I could relate 100% ... but that was not a requirement to appreciate his show... Incredibly intelligent show and funny
It was funny for sure. I still like "What's wrong with people!" more. And maybe it's just me, but it just seemed shorter too. But the parts that were funny to me, were very funny, just not enough of those types of moments.
I finally discovered Sebastian on Showtime with this special and now he's one of my favorite comedians. I love it when he talks about his family, going out with his pals when he was single to dance. He's both a smart guy and a great physical comedian as well.
