In response to 12 sold out performances from July 23 to August 7 at Borgata, fans now have another chance to see Sebastian Maniscalco at The Event Center with two added shows Sunday, July 25 at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Touted as “…the hottest comic in America,” by The New York Times, Maniscalco has celebrated heights only a few comedians ever achieve. A string of record-breaking, sold-out arena shows include a comedy record for Chicago’s United Center with 21,286 fans, the highest gross for a single event at Boston’s TD garden and a historic four-show run at Madison Square Garden, breaking the venue record for most shows sold in a weekend.
After over a year off the road, the man Vulture who said, “I built a tremendous fan base the old-fashioned way: one joke at a time, one audience at the time,” is set to return to the stage with his new “Nobody Does This” tour. With so many new experiences and observations to draw from this last year, Maniscalco is eager to share his comedic perspective with the world. During the last year the comic NBC Nightly News dubbed, “comedy’s new superstar,” found new ways to connect with fans and flex his comedic muscles including hosting several virtual dinners with friend and chef, Dominick DiBartolomeo. The comedian also managed to notch several career firsts in 2020 including a two-night run guest-hosting ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” In addition to adding late night host to his growing list of hyphenates, Maniscalco also added executive producer with the release of “Sebastian Maniscalco presents Pat McGann: When’s Mom Gonna Be Home?” In 2021, fans will also find the always bothered comedian on their TV exploring the world of food in his own show for Discovery+ to be released later this year.
