SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO has reached heights that few comedians could ever dream about. His five television comedy specials (for Netflix, Showtime and Comedy Central) scaled new ratings heights, prompting NBC’s Nightly News to dub him “comedy’s new superstar” and the New York Times to call him “the hottest comic in America.” Recent success include a string of record-breaking, sold-out arena shows including Madison Square Garden; a new Netflix original special called “Stay Hungry;” the launch of his brand-new You Bother Me tour; and a starring role alongside Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated The Irishman. These successes follow a number of blockbuster years for the comedian, author and actor that have included releasing a best-selling memoir; landing a role in Green Book, which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards and receiving Billboard’s inaugural Comedian of the Year award.
DON FELDER is a proud, longstanding member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, having been inducted with the Eagles back in 1998. “Fingers” Felder spent 27 years with the Eagles, who have sold over 150 million albums worldwide to date and own the fine distinction of recording the top-selling album of all time — Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975), which has sold over 38 million copies (and counting). The “Fingers” nickname is well-warranted, as anyone who has ever watched the man’s hands blaze across whatever guitar fretboard he has in tow can readily attest. In fact, the inherent prowess of those dexterous digits helped Felder navigate the burgeoning rock scene in his native Gainesville, Florida, while he was growing up there in the 1960s. Felder has also recorded with and performed alongside top-drawer artists such as The Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Warren Zevon, Diana Ross, Stevie Nicks, Vince Gill, Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Stephen Stills, whom Don first crossed paths with in the aforementioned Gainesville in the early 1960s.
SUE BIRD is an Israeli-American professional basketball player for the Seattle Storm of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). Bird was drafted by the Storm first overall in the 2002 WNBA draft. She finished her UConn career ranked first in three-point field goal percentage and free throw percentage, second in assists and steals, and as a three-time winner of the Nancy Lieberman Award as the top point guard in the nation, while leading her team to a record of 114–4. Bird has won a joint-record four WNBA championships with the Storm , four Olympic gold medals, two NCAA Championships with UConn, and four FIBA World Cups. She is one of only 11 women to attain all four accolades. She is also a five-time EuroLeague Champion. During her WNBA career, she has been selected to eleven WNBA All-Star teams and eight All-WNBA teams.
