Stand-up comedian and actor Sinbad returns to The Orleans Showroom with his unique comedic storytelling and wit January 30 and 31.
Sinbad is best known for various television and movie appearances throughout the 1980s and 1990s, including several HBO comedy specials.
Sinbad’s comedy is built more on stories than jokes, based on everyone he meets, everything he’s seen and everything he does. As the son of a preacher man, he is committed to making his comedy side-splitting but not profane. He also takes the trials and tribulations of audience members and throws it back in their faces, creating a unique comedy experience.
Sinbad began his career as a seven-time contestant on “Star Search.” He spent four years on the television show “A Different World” and starred in his own series, “The Sinbad Show.” Sinbad made his film debut in “Necessary Roughness” and also had leading roles in “Jingle All the Way,” “Houseguest” and “First Kid.” His appearance on the series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” received critical acclaim.
Sinbad was named one of Comedy Central’s top 100 comedians and was featured in a special program on the network in 2010. He received a NCAAP Image Award two years in a row for his annual HBO special “Sinbad’s ‘70s Soul Music Festival.” Sinbad has also participated in several USO tours.
Recently, Sinbad released a new one-hour special that debuted on Comedy Central. “Sinbad: Make Me Wanna Holla” is a stand-up special featuring a riotous original performance that took place in Detroit.
