Comedian Sinbad at Big Sandy Superstore Arena Friday night

Oct. 01, 2013 @ 02:42 PM

 HUNTINGTON -  Sinbad has starred in TV, movies, and even written his own tongue-in-cheek self-help book,  “Sinbad’s Guide to Life: (Because I Know Everything).”

 But no matter in what field he roams, the son of a preacher and former college basketball player, never drifts too far from his first love – talking and hamming it up in a room full of people.

 Ranked by Comedy Central as one of the Top 100 standup comedians of all time, Sinbad, helps Marshallville get its Homecoming Weekend herd on with an 8 p.m. show Friday, Oct. 4 at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena.

 Tickets are $25 and $35 for the general public, and $20 for Marshall students who pick them up at the Arena Box office. Tickets are also available at Ticketmaster outlets, online and by calling 1-800-745-3000.

 Sinbad, who of late has guested on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and who did a stint on “Celebrity Apprentice,” said nothing beats the rush of a microphone flowing with a conversation with a live audience all vibing off the energy in a room.
