TEMECULA, Calif. (Sept. 18, 2017)Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco continues his momentum through 2017 after being named “Just for Laughs” Stand-Up Comedian of the Year, getting selected for People magazine’s annual “Ones to Watch” package, and his third hit special “Why Would You Do That?” was awarded Showtime’s most successful comedy/variety special of 2016. Maniscalco invites audiences to experience his at times physical and aghast-at-the-world brand of comedy at Pechanga Resort & Casino on Saturday, December 2 at 8 p.m. inside the Pechanga Theater. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 21 at 3 p.m. and are $85, $95, $105 and $115. Tickets may be purchased online at, by calling (877) 711-2946 or in person at the Pechanga Box Office.

This year, shortly after welcoming his daughter, Serafina, into the world with his wife Lana, he set the record for most consecutive comedy appearances at the Borgata in Atlantic City with a seven-performance stint in early July. Maniscalco continues to adhere to the voice he describes as “always in the back of my head saying ‘Don’t rest!’,” and takes what The New York Times calls his “own kind of panache” across the US this fall.

“I just had to go on tour this fall because with a new baby, comes new material,” shares Sebastian.

Dubbed “one of the hottest comics” by Newsday and “one of the funniest comics working stand-up today” by Esquire, Sebastian’s live performance has become a critically-acclaimed event, with the Los Angeles Times raving, “onstage, there’s an impatience to Maniscalco’s delivery as well, a hair-trigger exasperation with people and modern life, punctuated with baffled expressions, percussive thumps on the microphone and wide-swung leg kicks more associated with an Olympic speed-skater than a stand-up comic.”

In addition to starring in his wildly popular podcast as heard on SiriusXM , “The Pete and Sebastian Show,” Maniscalco is making several major motion picture appearances this year including a voice-over role in the animated feature “The Nut Job 2,” a role in the New Line Feature comedy “The House” starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, as well as a role in the independent drama “Cruise,” directed by Rob Siegel and produced by Jeremy Renner.
