SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO ALREADY “HUNGRY” FOR 2019
Comedian, Actor and Best-Selling Author Announces
30+ Stay Hungry Tour Dates for Next Year
Additional Run of Dates Come on the Heels of Maniscalco Selling Out
Three Shows at Madison Square Garden and Adding a Fourth Jan. 19-20
Set to Return to ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!” on Nov. 5, 2018
Billboard opined last month comedian, actor and best-selling author Sebastian Maniscalco “is starting the new year at the top of the comedy game,” when announcing he would be taking the Madison Square Garden stage on Saturday, January 19, 2019. They weren’t wrong. Additional shows sold out as quickly as they were added. Dubbed “one of standup comedy’s breakthrough performers” in a recent CBS Sunday Morning profile, and “the comedian’s comedian” by PEOPLE, Maniscalco is set to perform four shows at the famous venue (three of them already sold out) Jan. 19-20.
On these heels of that career milestone comes news that his wildly successful Stay Hungry Tour will continue through May 18, 2019 with over 30 stops across the U.S. Tickets and VIP packages will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 at 10:00 am local time. Maniscalco is also set to return to ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!” on Nov. 5 to discuss his upcoming appearances at Madison Square Garden and 2019 tour. Check local listings for time.
Distinguished by the New York Times as having his “own kind of panache,” Maniscalco’s live performances have become critically-acclaimed events “embraced with thundering applause and tear-inducing laughter,” according to a recent Billboard review which described his Sept. 8, sold-out Greek Theatre performance as “devastatingly full-force comedy.”
With a string of record-breaking sold-out comedy appearances, a best-selling memoir Stay Hungry (available in paperback Nov. 13), five sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall earlier this year, an appearance in the summer film TAG as well as appearances in upcoming fall films Cruise and Green Book (winner of Toronto Film Fest’s 2018 People’s Choice Award), 2018 has been a milestone year, culminating in Maniscalco receiving Billboard’s inaugural Comedian of the Year award this November. And 2019 is already shaping up to be another banner year for one of Forbes’ Highest Paid Comedians. With a role in Martin Scorsese’s 2019 picture The Irishman as well as a new Netflix special coming early next year, Maniscalco can also add playing FOUR nights at ‘The Garden’ to his list of accomplishments.
