Sebastian Maniscalco cut back on his schedule to enjoy normal life, for a time. He’ll be golfing while visiting Vegas this weekend. “Is that even possible, in the heat?” Maniscalco, headlining Encore Theater on Friday and Saturday night, asks rhetorically. “My tee time is 8:30, 9 o’clock …” It’ll be hot, especially on the back nine. But the comic will play anyway.

He’s what we can call a good golfer, for a stand-up. He’s a 21 handicap, getting back on the links after overcoming sciatic pain in his back and left leg over the past two years. “I got that under control and I started golfing again,” Maniscalco says. “But listen, if you golf with me, it’s not like I’m holding up play.
