Fresh off a wildly successful, two-year-plus run on his "Stay Hungry Tour," Billboard’s 2018 Comedian of the Year Sebastian Maniscalco returned last month with his new "You Bother Me" tour, with a planned stop at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Friday, March 6th, 2020. Tickets are on sale now.
Touted as ‘the comedian’s comedian” by People, Maniscalco finds himself “at the vanguard of a live comedy revolution” according to Pollstar.
“There’s nothing like going to a live show and seeing it in real life,” Maniscalco said in a recent interview with Forbes, who named him as one of the Top 10 highest-grossing stand-up comedians in the world in 2019. “Is there a comedy bubble that’s going to pop soon? Yet to be seen, but as I’ve been in this business, it has gotten progressively better each year and I don’t see it slowing down.”
Not only has the star power of Maniscalco rocketed upward in the past few years thanks to shows described by Billboard as ‘devastatingly full force comedy,” but also due to his high energy Netflix Original special – Stay Hungry – streaming now. The special, which was taped over a span of five sold-out shows at the legendary Radio City Music Hall, had Maniscalco playing for a total of 28,312 long-time fans and early believers in his unique comedic voice.
Vulture recently said of the entertainer’s journey to success, “Maniscalco, without a breakout TV or film role, built a tremendous fan base the old-fashioned way: one joke at a time, one audience at a time.” Although he may not have started his career in film, Maniscalco’s loyal fans will continue to see more acting roles from him with a performance opposite Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. The film arrives in select theaters on November 1st and premieres on Netflix November 27th.
He has also begun work on his next role as famed producer Giorgio Moroder in Spinning Gold a film about ’70s Casablanca Records chief Neil Bogart starring Michelle Monaghan, Samuel L. Jackson, Kenan Thompson, Neil Patrick Harris and more.
