WHO IS HE: Sinbad began his career in 1983 on a bus tour of comedy clubs across the country. After being discovered by comedic legend Redd Foxx, Sinbad made appearances on television shows such as “Star Search” and “The Redd Foxx Show.” The comedian hosted his own talk show called VIBE and also served as host on Showtime at the Apollo. In the late 1980s Sinbad played Walter Oaks on “A Different World,” which was a spin-off of “The Cosby Show.” More recently he has appeared in the Showtime series “Resurrection Blvd.” In addition to comedy and acting, Sinbad is also a humanitarian who has dedicated his time and money to many notable charitable causes including the Children’s Defense Fund, the Omega Boys Club and various AIDS awareness groups.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Sinbad’s comedic style revolves around telling real-life stories without a written script. He has an explosive delivery and relies on his strong improvisational skills. Sinbad gives a clean comedy show that is suitable for all ages and he is no stranger to the stages of Atlantic City, performing in the resort city several times a year. Despite his success, Sinbad is one of those comics who appears to have as many people who strongly dislike him as he does those who think he’s hilarious.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $65, and the show begins 8 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at Tropicana Casino and Resort’s Showroom.
