If you were playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, someone you might want to sneak into your lineup of connected stars is Sinbad. Though he's not the first actor that comes to mind when you think "who's acted with everyone," he definitely might win you a game or two.
Fans of comedy, and those of you older the age of 30, will remember that he played alongside the Cosby family folks and Marisa Tomei in A Different World, Salma Hayek co-stared with him in The Sinbad Show, and not sure if this counts in finding your way to the Bacon, but he spent a Bosnia and Herzegovina USO tour with former FLOTUS Hillary Clinton and Sheryl Crow.
And now, Sinbad is back with a live special Make Me Wanna Holla where the clean talking comedian will dampen your drawers, whether or not you like it. The film will screen at more than 500 theaters on August 22 thanks to Fathom Events.
The movie was filmed at the Fillmore Detroit on August 2, in Sinbad's home-state of Michigan. According to a press release, Sinbad said, "I'm excited to be doing my first stand-up special for movie theaters. This will be my funkiest stand-up ever. It's time to know the dark side -- the Memphis red side of Sinbad."
Win two tickets to see the screening at the Royal Palm Stadium 18 with RPX in West Palm Beach at 8 p.m. on Thursday, August 22.
