Sebastian Maniscalco Stay Hungry Tour
Saturday, December 29, 2018 7 p.m. & New Show Added: 10 p.m. Walt Disney Theater Tickets start at $45.00
A string of record-breaking sold out comedy appearances, a new top-ranked show on SiriusXM, “The Pete & Sebastian Show,”and inclusion on Forbes’ 2017’s “The World’s Highest Paid Comedians” who praised, “thanks to his enthusiasm and willingness to work, Maniscalco will likely continue to be on Forbes’ list for years to come,” comedian Sebastian Maniscalcois having an incredible year. The tour title is appropriate as not only is “Stay Hungry” the name of his forthcoming 2018 book for Simon & Schuster, but it is also his personal motto. Instead of asking questions –a theme that has served as the foundation of his previous comedy specials and shows like Aren’t You Embarrassed? and Why Would You Do That?–Maniscalco’s new tour has the affable performer instead encouraging fans to follow in his footsteps and “stay hungry.
