FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sebastian Maniscalco Comes to The Wilbur
WHAT: On January 15 & 16, 2016, Sebastian Maniscalco is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
Saying what we’re all thinking has always been Sebastian Maniscalco’s specialty. Except when he says it, it’s a whole lot funnier.
And in his brand new Showtime standup special “Aren’t You Embarrassed?” debuting on November 14, the sophisticated comedian with the chiseled cheekbones gives us a hilarious reality check of the world we all find ourselves living in. Continuing to bring his witheringly sarcastic and exasperated take on modern behavior and etiquette in his second Showtime special in two years, Sebastian takes on everything from selfies that he calls “lonelies” (“Do you know how alone you have to be to have 838 photos of yourself in your bathroom?”) to online restaurant reviews (“Who’s got the time to write an 18 page essay on asparagus?”) to airport check-ins (“I’m taking out a boot…a sock…a toothpaste…does anyone know what two pounds is?”). The special has already spawned the Twitter hash tag #Aren’tYouEmbarrassed, with thousands of followers donating their take via social media on the absurdities of everyday life in the year 2014.
