Where  750 West Lancaster Blvd., Lancaster CA 93534 (map)
DescriptionLancaster Performing Arts Center has made a legendary addition to its 2010/2011 season! American stand-up comedian and actor Sinbad will be returning to the LPAC on Thursday, April 21st at 8:00pm. Sinbad, whose last Comedy Central Special beat out both Larry the Cable Guy’s last special & Jim Gaffigan’s last special will also be starring in his very own tv show, SINBAD’S FAMILY AFFAIR, for the WE Network to air in April! Sinbad is a legendary comedian not because he tells jokes – “I don’t know any,” he admits – instead, he stalks the stage, telling real-life stories. He doesn’t deliver payoff lines, he slam-dunks them! His comedy is large, physical, and impetuous. His clean, homegrown humor, family-friendly persona and animated antics have earned him dedicated fans of all ages since the 1980s. Sinbad began his career appearing on Star Search, where he won his round against fellow comedian Dennis Miller. Since this modest beginning, Sinbad has gone on to become one of America’s best-loved and funniest comedians to national stardom on television and movies. He made his big screen debut in the 1991 gridiron comedy “Necessary Roughness.” His other motion picture credits include starring roles in “Houseguest,” “First Kid” and “Jingle All the Way” and a cameo in “Coneheads.” He was the voice of the canine Riley in “Homeward Bound II.”
