Seasonal Special Happenings

Meatballs, Not Basketballs

When: Thu., May 15 2014

Sebastian Maniscalco puts a second-generation twist on everything he talks about, and it’s pretty funny. He observes how 50 years ago, his Italian mom would save a cake “just for visitors” and leave the crap muffins for the family to eat. Nowadays his mother cusses and pulls out a sword every time the doorbell rings. You won’t ever catch this guy playing basketball because Italians “don’t play sports” in America. Give him a meatball sandwich instead, and he’ll paint your whole ceiling. You’ll feel right at home if you happen to come from an Italian family, but even if you don’t, this guy’s observations are hilariously spot-on. The show starts at 8 tonight at Hilarities; performances continue through Sunday. Tickets are $23 to 25. (Trenholme)
