Sebastian Maniscalco: Why Would You Do That?

October 201663 minutes

In the long-awaited follow-up to the outrageously funny and wildly successful past shows: 2012’s “What’s Wrong With People?” and 2014’s “Aren’t You Embarrassed?” - comedian Sebastian Maniscalco asks what most will not in “Why Would You Do That?” – an all new comedy event. Sebastian continues his skepticism of daily observations from New York City's legendary Beacon Theatre filmed at one-of-seven sold-out shows on his tour, where he provokes uncontrollable laughter with his signature comedy style that blends high-energy physical acts-outs and hilariously demonstrative facial expressions. Maniscalco invites his audiences to take a look at their own habits through the lens of his old-world, Italian-American upbringing, shredding modern-day society, where everyone and everything is suspect. The New York Times dubs Maniscalco’s performances as his “own kind of panache,” stating, “only once in a while comes a comic like Sebastian Maniscalco, who treats the stage like a dance floor.” Newsday raves his “unique comedic style [is] poised to make him the next big comedy star,”. From being forced to remove his shoes at a house party to interrupting his wife’s “compliment circle,” Sebastian keeps us laughing with his unique brand of physical and quick-witted observational comedy.
