Comedian Sinbad bringing stand-up show to Rivers Casino
Comedian Sinbad will perform at 7 p.m. July 19 in the new event center at Rivers Casino on Pittsburgh’s North Shore.
Born David Adkins, Sinbad launched his stand-up comedy career by appearing in 1983 on “Star Search,” where he beat out another then-unknown comedian named Dennis Miller before losing in the finals.
In 1987, Sinbad landed a role in “A Different World,” a spin off of “The Cosby Show,” and also had his own 1993-94 sitcom, “The Sinbad Show.”
He has appeared in movies, including “Houseguest,” “First Kid” and “Jingle All the Way.”
Sinbad also is known to display his music ability after his shows. He plays multiple instruments, primarily percussion, and has played with numerous artists and musicians under the name “Memphis Red.”
Tickets to the Rivers Casino show, starting at $30, are available at riverscasino.com and at Dorsey’s Record Shop, 7614 Frankstown Road, Homewood.
