If only the world could be as happy as me as you watch and listen and participate with a professional comedian, Sinbad. He is a joy to watch, listen to. Very animated in facial expressions and becomes very family orientated to the audience in every warm way and comical way. His approach and comedy is like having a breath of fresh country air in the middle the forrest. He is drug-free, with a great heart and soul next to me that is. Sinbad, thanks for the dorfins of energy.

Sinbad redefined stand-up comedy and turned it into a family affair. With an amazing ability to tell profound stories without being profane, he became one of the most highly sought after comedians of the 1980s and early 1990s. He first made his mark on TV as a regular on the hit series A Different World (NBC, 1987-1993) as a coach and dorm director who clowned around as much as the college students he was in charge of. He also starred in several successful HBO comedy specials including Sinbad: Brain Damaged (1990) and Sinbad: Afros and Bellbottoms (1993). In his shows, the larger-than-life comic kept audiences laughing by sharing hilarious and spontaneous stories instead of churning out one punch line after another.
The son of a preacher man, Sinbad never cursed during his act and was always mindful of the younger audience who also flocked to his family-friendly feature films like Houseguest (1995) and Jingle all the Way (1996). After his career went on hiatus in the 2000s, Sinbad reemerged in 2010 as a contestant on the NBC reality competition series Celebrity Apprentice 2008. That same year, he starred in the Comedy Central aptly-titled special Sinbad: Where U Been, reclaiming his place as a true comedic giant.
