Born and raised in the Chicago area by Italian immigrant parents, Maniscalco has become a fixture in comedy and entertainment with his outlandish observational humor. Following a move to Los Angeles in 1998, Maniscalco became a favorite at the legendary Comedy Store, earning admiration from fellow comedians and mainstream audiences alike. Hailed by The New York Times as the “hottest comic in America,” Maniscalco boasts a string of record-breaking arena shows across the country that earned him the top spot on Pollstar’s Top Comedy Tours list.
Over his 20-plus year career, the comedian, actor, best-selling author and podcast host has built a loyal fanbase with his array of specials and relentless touring schedule. His six comedy specials for Netflix, Showtime and Comedy Central have been hugely popular. His newest special “Sebastian Maniscalco: Is It Me?” (2022) was filmed during his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas and received similar acclaim.
Maniscalco’s success in comedy is only matched by his prowess on the silver screen. He’s currently starring alongside a star-studded cast in the animated feature film “The Super Mario Bros.,” portraying legendary producer Giorgio Moroder in “Spinning Gold,” and appearing in the dramedy “Somewhere in Queens” with Ray Romano and Laurie Metcalf. He's also co-written and starred in “About My Father,” a Lionsgate production loosely based on his Italian family experience, in his first role as a leading man alongside Robert De Niro.
Other notable career highlights include the publication of his best-selling memoir "Stay Hungry," a role in the Academy Awards' Best Picture “Green Book,” and a starring role alongside acting legends Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-nominated film The Irishman.
