Just for Laughs’ Stand Up Comedian of the Year (2016) Sebastian Maniscalco returns to Montreal as part of his brand new tour - STAY HUNGRY - reflecting on his path and all of the hard work it has taken to get to this point in his career as well as his new role as a dad.
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 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.
