SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO -- January 17, 2014. "What's Wrong with People?" asks Sebastian Maniscalco in his hilarious new hit stand-up spe- cial airing on Showtime and available on DVD nationwide on March 27th. In "What's Wrong with People," he brings his witheringly sarcastic and exasperated take on modern behav- ior and decorum, trying to bridge the gap between the Italian-American Old World he grew up in and the con- temporary frenetic world we all live in today. The result is an original, highly" relatable stand-up comedy tour-de- force that has Sebastian performing sold-out concerts worldwide. His self- deprecating comedy reminds fans of a young Jerry Seinfeld who constantly challenges his audience to recognize the absurdities of everyday life.
