About Nick Di Paolo:
In this day of watered down comedy Nick Di Paolo’s brutally honest performances remind audiences of what great stand up should be: funny, socially relevant and a little bit reckless. His seething, sarcastic style landed him at clubs such as Catch a Rising Star, Caroline’s and The Comedy Cellar. It was at clubs like these where he honed his uncompromising point of view, which makes him not only a club favorite, but a true “comic’s comic.”
Di Paolo has performed on shows including “The Tonight Show,” HBO’s “Young Comedians Special,” “Late Night with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” He was twice nominated for an Emmy for his writing on “The Chris Rock Show” and has also had three half-hour stand up specials of his own on Comedy Central. Di Paolo was one of the stars on “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and a stand out on many Comedy Central roasts; he also had guest starring roles on “Lucky Louie” and “The Sopranos” as well as films including Artie Lange’s “Beer League.” He is a favorite on both Howard Stern and Opie and Anthony and hosted his own show on New York’s 92.3 Free FM.

About Sebastian Maniscalco:
Los Angeles-based Sebastian Maniscalco’s facial expressions and complete disgust with human behavior have given him the reputation as one of the most sought-after comedians working today. Maniscalco’s comedy is impeccably paced and chock-full of seething observations on daily human behavior. Most recently, he has starred in the film “Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show” and his “Comedy Central Presents” special is the highest rated comedy special on ONDEMAND.
His humor also created memorable spots on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Comics Unleashed” and Showtime’s “Comics Without Boarders.” His comedy is so diverse, it has enabled him to work with prestigious acts such as B.B. King, Al Green, Anita Baker, Gladys Knight and Dennis Miller. His DVD “Sebastian Live” is currently available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.com.
