Sebastian Maniscalco

Mar 5 , 2017 · BELK THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center

$35.75 - $200

Presented by: Outback Concerts

Just for Laughs’ Stand Up Comedian of the Year (2016) Sebastian Maniscalco continues spreading his laughs across the U.S. on his WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? TOUR that will run through next year. 

The WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? TOUR tour will contribute to the Tag You’re It! Foundation, Maniscalco’s own charity, by donating $1 for every ticket sold. The foundation, set up through the California Community Foundation, strives to support research in Alzheimer’s disease, children’s education and the U.S. military.

 Maniscalco will return to SHOWTIME® this fall with his wildly popular “own kind of panache” (New York Times) in SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?, beginning Oct. 1, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on-air, online, on demand and over the internet. Maniscalco is the star and executive producer of the special, directed by Joe Demaio, which was filmed at Beacon Theatre during one of his seven sold-out shows of the year. The Manhattan show serves as the setting for Maniscalco to deliver his unique brand of physical and quick-witted observational comedy in a new hour of highly anticipated skepticism, all while asking WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? 

 “Coming up in this business over the years has taught me to look for folks that are in it for the same reasons I am,” said Maniscalco. “I knew we had found a great partner in SHOWTIME® on my last special, and I am happy we are continuing that relationship. Through their platform, I’ve been able to expose my stand-up to a broader audience and am looking forward to continuing to ask the hard questions like WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?”

 Maniscalco is one of comedy’s fastest rising new stars. Born and raised in a working-class Chicago neighborhood, he moved to Los Angeles in 1998 to pursue his comedy career. There, he employed the work ethic his father instilled in him to build his name – simultaneously working as a waiter at the Four Seasons Hotel – and eventually drew the attention of actor Vince Vaughn, who cast him in Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show. Maniscalco also stars in his own wildly popular The Pete and Sebastian Show podcast every Friday night. Maniscalco can be seen in the 2016 season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee as well as in the upcoming feature films The House, starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler; Cruise, directed by Rob Siegel and produced by Jeremy Renner; and the animated feature Nut Job 2.

The VIP package includes a premium seat, signed tour laminate, signed DVD, souvenir ticket, and photo opportunity. Purchasers will be contacted with details closer to performance date.
