Tickets on-sale Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. PST
LAS VEGAS (May 14, 2018) – With a string of record-breaking sold out comedy appearances, a top-ranked show on SiriusXM, and inclusion on Forbes’ 2017’s “The World’s Highest Paid Comedians,” comedian Sebastian Maniscalco is at the top of his game. People Magazine’s “The People’s Comedian” has spent 2018 on the road with his Stay Hungry Tour and after a wildly successful first performance, has added an additional stop in Las Vegas. Maniscalco is scheduled to perform his second show of the year on Sunday, Oct. 7 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. PST. The event is presented jointly by AEG Presents and Caesars Entertainment.
Tickets may be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office, by calling 866-320-9763 or online by visiting thecolosseum.com or ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices are $95/$69.50/$55/$39.50 (prices include 9% Live Entertainment Tax.) Orders are subject to additional service charges and fees. For groups of 10 or more, call 866-574-3851. Showtime is scheduled for 8 p.m.
The tour title is appropriate as not only is “Stay Hungry” the name of his book (released in February 2018) for Simon & Schuster, but it is also his personal motto.
“The Stay Hungry tour marks the release of my book while I also venture into this new chapter of my life: being a dad. Lately, I’ve found myself reflecting on my path and all of the hard work it has taken to get to this point in my career. I hope to one day pass these values on to my daughter and encourage her to stay hungry for more,” shares Maniscalco, who has expanded his major motion picture portfolio to include a voice-over for character Johnny the Groundhog in the animated feature “Nut Job 2” and appearances in films including the Will Ferrell-starring New Line Feature comedy “The House” and a role in 2018’s “TAG,” starring alongside Ed Helms and Jeremy Renner.
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.”
Instead of asking questions – a theme that has served as the foundation of his previous comedy specials and shows like Aren’t You Embarrassed? and Why Would You Do That? – Maniscalco’s new tour has the affable performer instead encouraging fans to follow in his footsteps and “stay hungry.”
