SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO ADDS ARENA DATES FOR
SECOND LEG OF NOBODY DOES THIS TOUR
Additional Dates will Take Comedian Across the US and Canada into 2022 with a Stop at the Forum on March 5
LOS ANGELES, CA – Touted as “…the hottest comic in America,” by The New York Times, Sebastian Maniscalco, has celebrated heights only a few comedians ever achieve. A string of record-breaking, sold-out arena shows includes a comedy record for Chicago’s United Center with 21,286, the highest gross for a single event at Boston’s TD Garden, and a historic four-show run at Madison Square Garden breaking the record for most shows sold in a weekend for the venue. That blockbuster success coupled with Netflix original comedy specials and a starring role alongside Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated The Irishman, it’s no surprise that both Pollstar and Billboard have honored the standup with their top touring awards.
Currently on the road for his new Nobody Does This Tour, the man Vulture said, “built a tremendous fan base the old-fashioned way: one joke at a time, one audience at the time,” announces over 15 arena dates for the second leg of the blockbuster tour. With so many new experiences to draw from this last year, Maniscalco is sharing his unique comedic perspective with the masses with this brand-new show.
“I’ve been unable to share my comedy for over a year,” Maniscalco shared exclusively with Billboard earlier this year. “I’m busting at the seams to get back out on the road and share my observations about life and family on this brand-new tour!”
Launching in November, the new tour dates will find him returning to many of the arenas he sold out with his last performance, including LA’s the Forum on Saturday, March 5, 2022. Long-time opener and fellow Chicago native Pat McGann continues as the opener on the cross-country trek. Tickets for Nobody Does This Tour go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, July 30 at 10:00 am via Ticketmaster.com.
During the last year, the comic NBC’s Nightly News dubbed, “comedy’s new superstar” found new ways to connect with fans and flex his comedic muscles, including hosting several virtual dinners with friend and chef Dominick DiBartolomeo. Billed as “Sebastian’s Sunday Supper” the events have offered the ultimate virtual dinner party, filled with amazing food and packed with special guests including Jerry Seinfeld, Lester Holt, J.J. Watt, Christopher Lloyd, and Rick Caruso.
The comedian also still managed to notch several career firsts in 2020 including a two-night run guest-hosting ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” In addition to adding late-night host to his growing list of hyphenates, Maniscalco also added executive producer with the release of Sebastian Maniscalco presents Pat McGann: When’s Mom Gonna Be Home?
On top of coming to a city near you, fans will also find the always bothered comedian on their TV exploring the world of food in his new series, Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco. The show premieres on discovery+ Aug. 12.
Maniscalco will also make a return to the big screen with a number of high-profile films. Projects in the works include a role in an untitled dramedy from Ray Romano, starring alongside Michelle Monaghan, Wiz Kalifa, Jason Derulo and more as legendary producer Giorgio Moroder in the upcoming Neil Bogart biopic Spinning Gold as well as opposite Robert DeNiro in About My Father a film loosely based on Maniscalco’s life. Stay tuned for news on the films’ release dates.
