Sebastian Maniscalco Biography

A native of Chicago, Sebastian grew up with comedy in his blood. After earning a degree in Corporate Organizational Communications from Northern Illinois University , he realized his passion for stand-up comedy and immediately headed out to Los Angeles . While working as a waiter at a Four Seasons in Beverly Hills , Sebastian spent every free night performing at local clubs, bowling alleys and bars. He remembers being so bad during his first stand-up act that the audience jeered him off the stage by screaming, “Sandman! Sandman!” in reference to Showtime at the Apollo’s Howard Sims who would usher failed acts offstage with a shepherd’s crook. But, with a steadfast work ethic and impeccable comedic timing, Sebastian has risen through the ranks to become one of the most respected entertainers in the stand-up community today.

As his career roll continued, Sebastian catapulted into the national spotlight with a 20-city tour for his one-hour Comedy Central DVD Special Sebastian Live! On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Sebastian has appeared as the unforgettable style correspondent providing hilarious grooming advice to unsuspecting airline passengers and churchgoers. His other national television appearances include the award-winning series The Savages, The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Lopez Tonight, Tim Meadows’ The Very Funny Show, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Showtime’s Comics without Boarders, Comics Unleashed and Hollywood Uncensored.

While perfecting his routine on the stand-up circuit, Sebastian captured the attention of award-winning actor and entertainer Vince Vaughn who selected him to be one of the four featured comedians in the critically acclaimed film Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show. “Performing with Vince every night for a month was the best time of my life,” Sebastian recalls. With hilarious appearances from other renowned comedians: Justin Long, Jon Favreau, Dwight Yoakam and Keir O’Donnell, the film became an instant cult success.

Throughout his diverse career, Sebastian has worked with many other entertainment legends including Prince, BB King, Al Green, Anita Baker, and Gladys Knight. In 2009, Sebastian completed an international USO tour for the troops where he performed in Guam, Fuji , Misawa, Iwakuni and Hiroshima . His sold-out shows at the Dubai Comedy Festival and Lebanon ’s Music Hall have solidified him as an international sensation.

Sebastian Maniscalco jokes, Quotes and One Liners

What is going on at the airport? Could we put a dress code at the airport? It looks like a slumber party over there. Do people care what they look like anymore? They just come out now as-is. They must roll out of bed, and then they're at United.

How do you feel like a man and order a lemon loaf? I would never get that; even if I wanted one, I'd point to it: 'Get one of these.'

Chicken, salad, steak -- I know what that goes for. A dynamite roll -- I have no idea what the hell that is.

Don't come home horny, drunk, you want to text your girl a sexy message. Look what you're typing before you send it. I didn't look; I just sent it off. She called me right back, she's like, 'Uh, what do you mean you want to "kick my puppy"?'
