What an absolute JOY it was talking to Sebastian Maniscalco!
As a comedian, you can only hope to talk to someone not only as funny and hardworking as him, but KIND. He's as humble as they come! We talked about his recent Netflix special, "Is It Me?", his love for Vegas, where he met his wife and what it's like having young kids at 50, his golf/pickleball obsession, his family Halloween costume and more! The entire interview is time-stamped below.....ENJOY!
And, special thank you to Sebastian, The Wynn Las Vegas and Blue Wire Studios for this incredible opportunity!
