Sebastian Maniscalco has been growing his following both locally and nationally for years, having performed at Pantages in 2016 and a sold-out show at the State Theatre last spring. This year he’s doing two shows at the State. Since the last time he came to town, Maniscalco has become a father, released his autobiography, Stay Hungry, and wrapped film roles in serious pictures working alongside the likes of Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino. But just because his star is burning brighter doesn’t mean he’s softened his tone. Whether he’s discussing his distaste for Uber (“It’s like hitchhiking with your phone”), confusion over why people think it’s okay act like assholes in public, or other parents’ lack of social cues, he’s unapologetically candid, and doesn’t give anyone a free pass.
