Before we had "Def Comedy Jam," "Martin," or any of the other major avenues for Black Comedians to regularly showcase their talents to the world, there was Sinbad. And almost only Sinbad. Though Sinbad's persona had a good dose of Coonish "Non-Threatening Negro" in him, his comedy was Real & Very Old School. In the clip below, Sinbad gives us a great dose of humor-speaking on everything from college life, to bad jheri curls to beatings from mama. Somewhat forgotten from comedy history, Sinbad absolutely paved the way for so many others to come a short time later. Salute.
