Students and parents alike will howl at Sinbads animated and physical style of comedy. This former host ofIts Showtime at the Apolloand co-star ofThe New Redd Foxx Show,The Cosby ShowandA Different Worldgot his first big comedic break as a finalist on the internationally-televised talent showStar Search.Soon after, celebrity fans like Bill Cosby were casting Sinbad in primetime sitcoms.

Sinbad doesnt write his material; he relives it on stage as he remembers it. Sinbad never curses�€he wants people to bring the whole family to his shows. It is his very own family ties that encourage his clean, animated and hilariously funny comedy that is well received by audiences everywhere. His improvised and spontaneous style of humor has made him one of Americas favorite and timeless comedians.

Sinbad never tells jokes.I dont know any,he admits. Instead, he delivers self-styled monologues, telling real-life stories that parody America past and present. His humorous storytelling mirrors our own daily foibles, poking holes in our everyday lives.

Sinbad has also found success on the big screen with starring roles in such films asNecessary Roughness,Houseguest,ConeheadsandJingle All The Waywith ArnoldSchwarzenegger .

Tickets for the Sept.17 show are $30 for the general public and $25 for WVU students with valid ID. Tickets may be purchased at the Mountainlair Box Office, online at, at any Ticketmaster outlet (including Giant Eagle in the Mountaineer Mall) or by phone at 304-292-0220.
