Filmed at the legendary Beacon Theatre, Sebastian Maniscalco continues to deliver his signature comedy style that blends high-energy physical acts-outs and hilariously demonstrative facial expressions.
Oakland-bred comic and best-selling author Moshe Kasher comes back to the Bay Area in this standup special. Back on his home turf, Kasher finds comedy in these uproarious stories about the people he's met -and how they see him
SM has two specials on Netflix. The first one "Aren't you embarrassed?" Came at a time when I didn't know who this guy was. But I literally laughed all the way through. His jokes had great timing, were relatable and to this day, I can watch that performance and still laugh at some of the jokes like I just heard them for the first time.
Stay Hungry is NONE of that. And it's a shame because when I saw this was out, I dropped everything to watch it. Like another reviewer mentioned, it's totally disjointed. So many of his jokes fall flat that it was almost cringy to witness, considering the incredibly large venue he was performing in; Radio City Music Hall.
There were a few parts that were genuinely funny, but the few parts that managed to get me to at least smile in this special, were more simply the fillers in the last one. That's how bad this one is in comparison.
Lastly this I'll say is that Sebastian is talented funny comedian, but I think they jumped the gun having him play this venue and if I had to guess, I think it made him try too hard. His last special everything was natural, almost as if he were reacting in the moment. This special, everything is forced, especially his signature physical gestures and perpetually annoyed persona that made him so funny leading up to this. My recommendation: Don't even bother with this one. It's a dud. But I genuinely hope it doesn't ruin his career.
