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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
