Our Weekend Saturday Picks

@HOB Houston

Comedian Sinbad makes his way this weekend to Houston's HOB. While his popularity may have peaked in the 1990s, Sinbad remains a popular live performer, landing several stand-up gigs each year. Image of SinbadSinbad also continues to appear on television and in films. He lent his voice to the animated series Slacker Cats and was a competitor on Trumps Celebrity Apprentice back in 2010. He also dabbled in a reality series back in 2011.

But the comedian hit a peak in the 80's Cosby Show spin-off "A Different World", which ran from 1987 to 1991. This is when we didn't know the real Bill Cosby.

In addition to acting, Sinbad continued to perform his stand-up comedy. He became known for his offbeat yet clean approach to humor. As he explained to Ebony, he has been called "a middle-of-the-road comic. 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."

The 80's iconic comedian was never shy about his military experience. Sinbad served in the United States Air Force as a boom operator aboard KC-135 Strat tankers. While assigned to the 384th Air Refueling Wing at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas, he would often travel downtown to perform stand-up comedy. He competed as a comedian/MC in the Air Force's Talent Contest in 1981. Sinbad was almost dismissed with a dishonorable discharge for various misbehaviors, including going AWOL.
Image of Sinbad“I didn't make the Air Force basketball team and went into denial. So, I kept going AWOL. My mother kept begging me to go back. I told her, "No, I'm not going back. I'll just grow a beard. They won't recognize me. I'll just be another black man with a beard." I was going to Georgia Tech to learn about computers. I'd go AWOL all the time. I'd just leave. I'd come back, hoping they'd throw me out.” After a series of incidents, he was eventually discharged "for parking my car in the wrong position."
