The first time we saw the very Italian comic Sebastian Maniscalco, we were dead certain that he was a native New Yorker. But it turns out he was actually born in Arlington Heights, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, very close to where we grew up. In 1998, he moved to Los Angeles and started appearing at The Comedy Store, while working his way up in the world of stand-up. He’s a little like Jerry Seinfeld in his funny observations, but he’s a lot more animated. Sebastian is in NY promoting his new Netflix special Stay Hungry, and we’re surprised to see him wearing head to toe MAUVE!
