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 more than two decades.

Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 stand-up 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 an uproar of comedic hysteria.

He can also make it sound profound without being profane. Not that he's any kind of choirboy. By being the son of a preacher-man, he decided to keep his comedy clean after his father attended one of his early performances. 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.

Says Sinbad, "Some of them compare me to Bill Cosby because I don't curse. I take that as a compliment, but my style is wilder than his." He freely admits that he doesn't knows any jokes, except for the ones that his dad told him "back in the day." Sinbad tells stories, and boy does he tell stories!
