Sebastian Maniscalco Makes Announcement on Conan


During his set on Conan on Wednesday night, Sebastian Maniscalco said he doesn’t get guys who have major life events to announce and do it on Facebook. Sebastian did something more personal, he announced his news on national television when he let the world know that he and his wife, artist Lana Gomez, are expecting a baby! The family is expecting a new little Maniscalco on May 1st. And if this baby kicks and gyrates as much as Sebastian does on stage, Lana is in for a long pregnancy.

Sebastian Maniscalco made the baby news while performing a bit on the ridiculousness of grooms who insist their groomsmen learn complicated choreography to entertain their brides at wedding receptions in a lame attempt to go viral. Sebastian added that he wouldn’t even begin to know how to ask one his buddies to start learning dance steps without taking a beating. And here’s something you shouldn’t expect to see expectant father Sebastian Maniscalco do that other dads-to-be do online, that’s posting a photo of himself knelt down on his knees kissing a very pregnant woman’s stomach. That’s not going to happen. He’s also got a real problem with people who turn their social media pages into fundraisers. The one exception he could understand, is if you wanted to buy a kid a leg.

After his set, Sebastian went and sat with Conan for some panel and some complaining about his family at Thanksgiving. It’s definitely worth the watch in the clips below to find out why Sebastian’s father didn’t want him in the hometown Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade and the very unique way his dad thinks he’s being robbed every time he drives into a gas station. Plus, Sebastian has some advice for people who think they need to bring a dish to a friend or relative’s house for the holidays. “Just keep your slop at home and bring a bottle of wine!”

Congratulations again to Sebastian and Lana from the IBang! Sebastian Maniscalco’s latest special, “Why Would You Do That?” is available at and on Showtime on demand.
