Growing up in the late 80's and early 90's, before the Def Comedy Jam era, Sinbad was quite possibly the most popular comedian in the country during that time frame. His hilarious and "clean" jokes won over millions of fans and he had an incredible run of TV shows and movies which is why he's still beloved to this day.

We received some scary news over the weekend from Sinbad's family who announced that the 64 year old comedian is recovering from a stroke according to Variety. Sinbad's real name is David Adkins and in a statement, his family says that he is on the road to recovery.

Sinbad is a light source of love and joy for many generations. While he is beginning his road to recovery, we are faithful and optimistic that he will bring laughter into our hearts soon. Our family thanks you in advance for your love and support and ask for continued prayers for his healing. We also ask that you please respect our privacy during this time.’ Thank you.” -statement from The Adkins Family via Variety

 

We send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers on a speedy recovery to Sinbad and his family and we hope to see him making us laugh again soon!
