***** Sebastian Maniscalco *****

Look—I’m not trying to be the Town Crier here…but when I got something that you may enjoy…

Last Friday night at the Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton, I saw Sebastian Maniscalco- a young comedian (I’m figuring about 35) in action. To put it bluntly, I can’t recall laughing so hard in a very-very long time. The guy did something like 80 minutes of clean contemporary comedy and literally had the audience eating out of his hand. Kinda hard to describe him, but when I was watching his show, he reminded me of a Jerry Seinfeld/John Travolta (actually- Vinny Barbarino)/Jerry Lewis amalgamation (never used that word before!).

If you want to see a top-notch comic in action, Sebastian who lives in Southern California, will be at the Fort Lauderdale Improv June 7-10 and the Miami Improv November 30 & December 1, 2012.

If you want to “test” the guy out before buying tickets, you can check him out on- You Tube, watch his current Showtime special, or go to www.sebastianlive.com.

Mark this column, in the coming years–this guy will be a major club and television performer…and if you had listened to Jeff Eats–you saw him, before anyone else!!

    I saw Maniscalco’s Showtime special. The guys is hilarious. Just curious, was the show you saw the same as the one on tv?

    GG: Just had a chance to read your comments.

    The show that I saw last week, had some of the same bits, but for the most part it was different material. In the Boca show, he did quite a bit of audience “stuff” talking about the community, Boca, South Florida. It was very clever.

    Thanks for reading…

    I saw him at WCC. One of the best I’ve seen. Don’t miss him.

    Jeff, caught Sebastian’s act at WCC. he was terrific. The opening act Max Docelli was also very good. Max works all over the country and does a lot of cruise work. He is in our area a lot so readers can also catch his act.

      I saw Max Docelli at NY Comedy Club in Boca last year. He was the headline act and he was a very funny guy. For the price of 2 Cokes I saw a great show. A friend of mine recently saw Max on the Allure cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. He loved him. From what I gather Max does a huge amount of cruise line work. I highly recommend that you go and see him when he comes into S. Florida.
      As for Sebastian, I watched some of his You Tube clips and the guy is very funny. My wife and I are going to catch his full act when he comes to the Improv in Fort Lauderdale in June.
      By the way, I was planning on seeing Mike Marino in Coral Springs a show that Jeff mentioned but it was cancelled. Whenhe comes back into our area I definitely want to catch his act.

    Glad you mentioned Max Docelli. He opened for Sebastian and did a great job. From what I understand, Max hasn’t been an opening act in something like 30 years. The folks on WCC’s staff did a great job in pairing these two comic up. They really complimented each other’s style.

    Thanks for reading…

    Jeff:

    75 years old. I’ve seen some great comics live.
    Benny, Berle, Cooper, Mason, Carlin, Hope, Leonard, Kaufman, Hackett, Klein just to name but a few.

    I saw Sebastian at Woodfield last Friday night.
    He is very funny, clever and has real up to date material.

    You do know that you have to go some to be considered a great comic. He’s got a way to go, but the potential is there.

    When I was watching him, he reminded of me as you mentioned Jerry Seinfeld. He also has a drop of Ray Romano in there.

    He put on a great show.

  7. Bob London says...

  8. Judy N says...

    Caught his show a couple weeks ago at Woodfield. The guy is one very funny dude. You other clubs out there should grab this guy for next year.

    Jeff,
    Checked him out on ShowTime. Very funny.
    A group of us are going to get tickets for his Fla June Improv date.

  12. Teddy says...

    Sebastian is a brilliant comic. Have seen him live and on tv and he always has the audience eating out of the palm of his hand.

  13. ED says...

    Watched his show on Showtime on Demand. He is definitely very very funny.
    Thinking of seeing him what he comes back to Florida.

  14. Mrs. Shapier says...

    A group of us saw him at the Woodfield Country Club and really enjoyed his show. He is definitely a young comic with a huge bright future ahead of him.

  15. Wally F says...

    Funny as all hell. Saw his tv special.

  16. Joey Mangano says...

    There are three young comics that I want to see in person, Mike Marino, Rocky Laporte and Sebastian Maniscalco. I have seen all three on You Tube and they are all terrific.

  17. MJK says...
