SINBAD
GCA FY18
SINBAD
His ‘hit ’em in the face’ style of comedy that has kept audiences rolling in the aisles for more than two decades isn’t about jokes, except for the ones that his dad told him “back in the day.” Sinbad’s comedy is about stories, and boy does he tell stories! The basis of his clean humor comes from everything he’s seen and done. Comedy Central ranked him as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time!
