Sebastian Maniscalco Headlines the Weidner Center

Sebastian Maniscalco Headlines the Weidner Center
Event on 2018-09-29 19:00:00
On the heels of a wildly successful start to 2018, comedian, actor, author Sebastian Maniscalco kicks off the fall leg of his blockbuster “Stay Hungry” international tour. The tour will make its way across the US and Canada with stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Vancouver and Calgary. Maniscalco recently wrapped the spring leg of his tour with five sold-out shows at New York’s iconic Radio City Music Hall. People Magazine’s “The comedian’s comedian” broke the historic venue’s record with his appearances ranking him the highest grossing comedy weekend in their 85+ year history. Fans around the world hungry to see the performance will get their chance as the set was filmed for an upcoming Netflix special to air later this year. Details will be announced soon.

The tour title is appropriate as not only is “Stay Hungry” the name of his new 2018 book for Simon & Schuster, making the national best-sellers list, but it is also his personal motto. Visit https://www.amazon.com/Stay-Hungry-Sebastian-Maniscalco/dp/1501115979.

2018 will also see Maniscalco expand his major motion picture portfolio to include roles in “TAG,” starring alongside Jon Hamm, Ed Helms and Jeremy Renner as well as “Green Book” with Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini and Viggo Mortensen. Already hungry for 2019, Maniscalco will join a star-studded cast that includes Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and more in Martin Scorcese’s upcoming film “The Irishman.”

Sebastian has made a deal with Lionsgate to develop a multi-generational comedy he will executive produce, cowrite with Austen Earl (The Great Indoors) and star in. Inspired by his stage routines, which touch on his Italian American family the script will follow two families from different worlds celebrating their first summer holiday together.

Maniscalco was included on Forbes’ 2017 list of “The World’s Highest Paid Comedians” where they praised, “thanks to his enthusiasm and willingness to work, Maniscalco will likely continue to be on Forbes’ list for years to come.” 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 for 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.”

CALEB TEICHER & COMPANY,
A COLLABORATION WITH CONRAD TAO
Friday, May 18, 2018 at 7:30pm

Baruch Performing Arts Center presents a Work-in-Progress, More Forever, by Caleb Teicher & Company, a collaboration with Conrad Tao, at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues), NYC on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets are ( for students) and are available at www.baruch.cuny.edu/bpac.

Caleb Teicher & Company continues their investigation of American dance traditions on a stage filled with a thin layer of sand. Using vernacular jazz, tap dance, and Lindy Hop with a new contemporary score for piano and electronics by Conrad Tao, this work-in-process sonic journey will brush away the fine line between movement and music and expand the expressive capacity of American music and dance. Teicher is joined by six additional dancers: Nathan Bugh, Evita Arce, Byron Tittle, Gabriel Winns Ortiz, Brittany DeStefano, and Macy Sullivan, with Tao providing music at the piano with electronics. The evening includes a discussion between Tao and Teicher about their collaboration and creative process.

CT&Co's signature elements of musicality, humor, and warmth have won the hearts of audiences by connecting to America's rich and diverse physical heritage, whether tap dancing to Bach or swing dancing to Chet Baker, playing patty-cake to Sufjan Stevens or ballroom dancing to Ella Fitzgerald. Past engagements include Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival's Inside/Out Series, Gibney Dance, Queens College/Kupferberg Center for the Arts (through CUNY Dance Initiative), The Yard on Martha's Vineyard, LaMaMa Experimental Theater Club, and the American Tap Dance Foundation, among others.
