Comedy Superstar Sebastian Maniscalco Adds Second Show By Popular Demand At Mohegan Sun Arena

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Tickets on sale this Friday

UNCASVILLE, CT (May 17, 2018) – Sebastian Maniscalco has added another date to his “Stay Hungry” international tour stop at Mohegan Sun Arena. The comedy star will now be live in the Arena for back-to-back 8:00pm shows slated for Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd.

Tickets are $149.00, $99.00, $79.00 and $59.00 and go on sale Friday, May 18th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to Ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Saturday, May 19th, subject to availability.

The fall leg of the tour comes on the heels of an already incredible year for Maniscalco. In February he released his first book Stay Hungry, for Simon & Schuster making the national best-sellers list. He also hit the road on the Stay Hungry 2018 Tour with 50 shows in cities including Montreal, Canada, where he was dubbed “Stand Up Comedian of the Year” at Just For Laughs Festival, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Toronto, Canada, where he sold out (19,000 tickets) Toronto Air Canada Center all culminating with five sold-out shows at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

2018 will also see Maniscalco expand his major motion picture portfolio to include roles in TAG, out June 15th, starring alongside Jon Hamm, Ed Helms and Jeremy Renner as well as Green Book with Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini and Viggo Mortensen. In 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.

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 of his previous comedy specials and shows like What’s Wrong with People?, 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.”

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas.  Mohegan Sun Arena was also ranked among the top 10 arena venues in the nation for 2014, regardless of size.
