Rise From the Ashes!

Sinbad, fresh from a virtual death on Wikipedia, performs today at the Parker Playhouse (707 NE 8th St., Fort Lauderdale). Perhaps you heard: The actor/comedian was in the news again recently. For weeks, the media debated whether Hillary Clinton had actually come under sniper fire on a visit to Bosnia, as she somberly claimed. In the end, CNN called in Sinbad to adjudicate. He had accompanied Mrs. Clinton to the war zone in 1996, at the twilight of his family-friendly fame. He had this to say: “I think the only 'red-phone' moment was: 'Do we eat here or at the next place.'" It’s official: Sinbad’s back. Catch the Phoenix himself tonight at 7:30 p.m. the Gilda’s Club South Florida 13th Annual Fundraiser. Tickets cost $50 to $200. Call 954-462-0222, or visit www.parkerplayhouse.com.
