Sebastian Maniscalco to headline Madison Square Garden in January 2019

A favorite of New York City who previously packed the Beacon Theatre for multiple nights, Sebastian Maniscalco is now arena-bound, booking Madison Square Garden for his next tour stop through the Big Apple. He’ll play MSG on Saturday, January 19, 2019.

“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.”

Chase cardholders will have advance access to tickets this Tuesday through Thursday. Tickets and VIP packages go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, available through Ticketmaster Charge by Phone (1-866-858-0008), and all Ticketmaster Outlets. Tickets are also available in person starting on Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Madison Square Garden, Beacon Theatre and Radio City Music Hall box offices.

Although the ranks of Garden headlining comedians has swelled in recent years, Maniscalco remains only the 14th stand-up to headline the arena. The others: Steve Martin, Andrew Dice Clay, Dane Cook, Chris Rock, Eddie Izzard, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, Russell Peters, Louis CK, Gabriel Iglesias, Bill Burr, Jim Gaffigan and Amy Schumer.
