It’s produced by CBS Television Studios and Garcia’s Amigos De Garcia Productions shingle. Co-EPs are Maniscalco (pictured), Judy Brown-Marmel, Norman Aladjem and Alix Jaffe.

    finally!! my favorite comedian! Sebastian’s voice is what helps me get through the day- his funny wit is so relatable enjoyable and the country will for sure join his “Aren’t You Embarrassed?” and “What’s WrongWith people? movements once they get to know him on this show!
