Sinbad was awesome. I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache. Sinbad is funny and clean. And the Grove of Anaheim... what can I say, there is no bad seat in the house. Great show.

This was my first time to an event like this. I expected stadium seating, but there were tables and I was closer than expected. I thought I would have to view the screens to see the comedian. The price of food was rediculous, although it was good....continued

Description

Actor and Comedian Sinbad will perform at the Grove of Anaheim on Sunday, March 7. He will bring his “hit’em in the face” style of comedy to the Grove, which has kept audiences laughing in the aisles for over the past two decades.

Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad has built a loyal following by taking audiences’ painful trials or embarrassing tribulations of day-by-day life, throwing them back in their faces, and causing uproar of comedic hysteria. He can also make it sound profound without being profane. Not that he’s any kind of choirboy, but by being the son of a preacher man he decided to keep his comedy clean after his father attended one of his early performances. Up to that time he had been what he describes himself as”semi-dirty”. Sinbad says that he learned that night that “funny is funny”, and that masters of dirty comedy such as Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce could all work clean without losing a step.

Sinbad is internationally known for his starring appearances in hit movies like “Jingle All the Way,” playing opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger; “Houseguest” co-starring the late Phil Hartman, and let’s not forget his film debut “Necessary Roughness”, where he did none of his own stunts! He has starred in the television sitcom “A Different World” as well as his own series, “The Sinbad Show”. Entertainment mogul Quincy Jones sought out Sinbad to host UPN’s first late night talk show, “Vibe”. He also recently appeared as a recurring guest star on the Showtime Original Series “Resurrection Blvd.” Sinbad has even written a self-help book entitled “Sinbad’s Guide to Life: (Because I Know Everything)”.

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 annual HBO music concert series (Oh! You didn’t know he was musical?) “Sinbad’s 70’s Soul Music Festival” received the prestigious NAACP Image Award consecutively for two years as the “Most Outstanding Variety Series/Special”. Most recently, Sinbad has appeared on the FX Television series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and he also recently taped his one hour Comedy Central special to be aired in February 2010. Also, this March Sinbad will be seen in the third season of Celebrity Apprentice.
