New York, NY –The Madison Square Garden Company and Outback Concerts announced today that Sebastian Maniscalco, dubbed “one of the hottest comics” by Newsday and “one of the funniest comics working stand-up today” by Esquire, will take the Madison Square Garden stage on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 7:00PM. Tickets and VIP packages will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 21 at 10:00AM ET.
With a string of record-breaking sold out comedy appearances, a best-selling memoir Stay Hungry, five sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall earlier this year, an appearance in the summer film TAG as well as appearances in upcoming fall films Cruise and Green Book, 2018 has been a milestone year for People Magazine’s “The comedian's comedian” culminating in Maniscalco receiving Billboard’s inaugural Comedian of the Year award this November. And 2019 is already shaping up to be another banner year for one of Forbes’ Highest Paid Comedians. With a role in Martin Scorcese’s 2019 picture The Irishman as well as a new Netflix special coming early next year, Maniscalco can also add playing ‘The Garden’ to his list of accomplishments. 
“I told my Father that I was going to do The Garden and he said, ‘I hope you’re planting cucumbers and tomatoes,’” said Maniscalco. “This is an amazing time for me and my family and I can’t wait to perform at the greatest arena in the world.”
Distinguished by the New York Times as having his “own kind of panache,” Maniscalco’s live performances have become critically-acclaimed events “embraced with thundering applause and tear-inducing laughter,” according to a recent Billboard review which described his sold-out Greek Theatre performance as “devastatingly full-force comedy.”
Chase cardholders will have advance access to tickets from Tuesday, September 18 at 10:00AM ET through Thursday, September 20 at 10:00PM ET; limited presale tickets are available. Tickets and VIP packages go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 21 at 10:00AM ET and will be available through Ticketmaster Charge by Phone (1-866-858-0008), and all Ticketmaster Outlets. Tickets are also available in person starting on Saturday, September 22 at the Madison Square Garden, Beacon Theatre and Radio City Music Hall box offices.
