A Grand favorite! Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup performers of all time, unpredictable comedian Sinbad is celebrated for his humorous take on life's painful trials and embarrassing tribulations. Sinbad's lively storytelling is noted for its take-no-prisoners approach, as the long-time actor and seasoned performer will often work the audience's own awkward experiences into his punchlines. The act has served him well, with dozens of film and television roles to his credit, including a cameo appearance on the hit FX series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and a new reality series on WEtv.

Despite his explosive performances, Sinbad believes humor can be effective without becoming profane. The 6'5"comedian was convinced that “funny is funny” after his father, a preacher and humorous man in his own right, visited one of his son's early performances. Realizing that his own influences could deliver clean comedy and still leave audiences in laughter, Sinbad charted a career as an unpredictable but family-friendly force stalking the stage for the next great joke. Sinbad’s unique style – often described as large, physical, impetuous, and manic – has earned him a devoted following and international stardom.
