sinbadDavid “Sinbad” Adkins brings his famously family friendly (yet still somehow engagingly edgy) brand of comedy back to the Count Basie for an umpteenth encore this Friday night. 

His major motion picture career (Houseguest, First Kid, Jingle All the Way) is largely behind him — although apparently so are the multi-million dollar financial woes that dogged his highest-profile years. But for the standup stalwart known as Sinbad, the live stage is his first and foremost port of call, an environment in which his signature style of observational, often stream-of-conscious humor works in sync with broad-based audiences in theater-scale venues that he continues to fill from coast to coast.

Here on the greater Green, the venue of choice is the venerable Count Basie Theatre — and it’s to the Basie boards that Sinbad returns for a repeat engagement Friday night, with a set that promises a full-length dose of clean, yet cutting comedy.

Tickets for the 8 pm show ($25 – $49) are gettable right here — and comedy fans can also visit the Count’s website to reserve advance tix for upcoming events starring Jim Breuer, Bill Maher, Andrew Dice Clay and Ron White.
