Actor and comedian Sinbad arrived on the comedy scene with a “hit’em in the face” style of comedy that has kept audiences laughing in the aisles for the past two decades. He freely admits that he doesn’t know any jokes except for the ones that his dad told him “back in the day.” The basis of his humor comes from everyone he’s met, everything he’s seen and everything he’s done.
Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad has built a loyal following by taking the painful trials and embarassing tribulations of day-by-day life and throwing them back into his audiences’ faces, causing an uproar of comedic hysteria. Although he’s not any kind of choirboy, Sinbad is the son of a preacher man, and he decided to keep his comedy clean after his father attended one of his early performances. Up until that time, he had described his own comedic style as “semi-dirty.” Sinbad says that he learned that night that “funny is funny,” and noted that masters of dirty comedy — such as Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce — had all been able to work clean without losing a step.
Sinbad has drawn legions of fans from his HBO highly-rated comedy specials “Brain Damaged” (1991), “Afros & Bellbottoms” (1993), “Son of a Preacher Man” (1996) and “Nuthin’ But the Funk” (1998). His HBO music concert series, “Sinbad’s 70’s Soul Music Festival,” received the prestigious NAACP Image Award consecutively for two years as the Most Outstanding Variety Series/Special.
Sinbad is internationally known for his appearances in hit movies like “Jingle All the Way,” in which he played opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, and “Houseguest,” which co-starred the late Phil Hartman. And don’t forget his film debut, “Necessary Roughness,” where he did none of his own stunts!
Sinbad starred in the television sitcom “A Different World,” which premiered in 1986, as well as his own series, “The Sinbad Show,” which ran in the mid-nineties. Entertainment mogul Quincy Jones sought out Sinbad to host UPN’s first late-night talk show, “Vibe.” Sinbad also appeared as a recurring guest star on Showtime’s “Resurrection Blvd.” Most recently, Sinbad has appeared on the FX series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and on the third season of “Celebrity Apprentice.”
In addition to his television, film and comedy work, Sinbad has also written a self-help book entitled “Sinbad’s Guide to Life: (Because I Know Everything).”

Sinbad came to Norfolk Va. at the L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center and gave a great show but the people that put on the event promised that pictures would be taken with Sinbad and cell phone numbers would be taken so a call would be made to get their email addresses so they could email pictures taken with Sinbad, which this was 4/15/2017, and they said it would be two days before they would contact you. Today is 4/19/2017 and no pictures, no contact, no contact from emails sent. I went to their website, which is Eventbrite.com where you can set up events and sent several emails and no response from the event coordinator. I also asked for a refund if they didn’t do what they promised and still waiting. This is my last chance of getting anything done. I also sent an email to Sinbad’s co-host, Allison Moore and received an email from her concerning this matter. I hope this matter can be resolved, the last step is contacting the BBB or another organization to see if this is some type of fraud.
