The Chicago-born-and bred turned Los Angeles native is known for posing questions like “What’s Wrong With People?” and in his latest 2014 Showtime special, “Aren’t You Embarrassed?,” which spawned appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Conan. Maniscalco is hitting the road in 2016 bringing new material and some fan favorites to a variety of theatres across the country.
As the Dallas Observer noted, “Much of the material for his three comedy specials and tours comes from his astonishment with modern society’s unspoken rules and the juxtaposition of current culture against his upbringing in a hardworking, 'half-Sicilian, half-Italian' immigrant family.” Maniscalco shares, “Those values ... have been a catalyst for my comedy. I’m like, 'Wow, I guess a lot of people didn’t have this type of upbringing' … that old world technique of, you know, nothing’s given to you, you’ve gotta work for everything you’ve done.”
All he has worked so hard for is paying off with his first memoir also expected in 2016 mixing two of his favorite things: laughs and food, titled “Where You Wanna Eat?” The memoir by Maniscalco and co-author Alan Eisenstock will explore Maniscalco’s dining experiences and dos and don’ts from a lifetime as a diner, waiter and keen observer of human nature through a series of his most memorable meals (Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster). The first glimpse at the table-side humor audiences can expect from Maniscalco in his memoir can be seen in January when he joins Jerry Seinfeld for "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee."
Additionally, Maniscalco will make several major motion picture appearances in the coming year including a voice-over role in the animated feature "Nut Job 2," a New Line Feature comedy "The House" starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler (directed by Andrew Cohen), and in the independent drama "Cruise" directed by Rob Siegel and produced by Jeremy Renner.
