At 24, Sebastian Maniscalco arrived in LA with a suitcase and saved up minimum wages. He knew no one and nothing about standup comedy, but he was determined to go for it anyway. At 44, he's on the Forbes' list of highest earning comedians, sells out arenas, and has starred in four hit comedy specials including Why Would You Do That? on Showtime. Stay Hungry tells the story of the 20 years in between.
A different perspective on success!! Good stuff!!

Great insight into my favorite comedian.
I truly enjoy Maniscalco’s brand of humor b/c it’s relatable to my life, except instead of being Italian, I’m Cuban. I’ve seen his shows when he was moving up the comedy club circuit from smaller clubs to now large arenas. His book was very enjoyable b/c it gave depth to the story told on tour.
Great to see that hard work truly pays off. Congrats Sebastian, I look forward to your next tour. Make it to Miami next time, I saw you in Ft. Lauderdale. Recommend the book.
