“Remember when mama used to hitcha with the belt? Shoot. You all, ‘Not the buckle, Mama! Just don’t hit me with the buckle!’ Man. Parents these days are afraid to hit they kids. It’s true! And what’s with kids and the video games?” Alright. So that was my best attempt at a Sinbad bit, circa 1993 — you know, that tricky period in The ’Bad’s career between A Different World and Houseguest, when he really shined his brightest? Since losing his foothold as the nation’s foremost flat-topped, neon track-suited, clean clown of the comedic stage, The ’Bad has seen some rough days. He filed Chapter 7 back in December, and shortly thereafter he was dismissed from The Celebrity Apprentice after just two episodes. However, Sinbad also made a cameo as himself (alongside a sketchy, tweaked-out Rob Thomas) in an especially hilarious and surreal episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia back in late 2008 that, if nothing else, showed us one thing: He may not be at the top of the comedy world anymore, but he has a sense of humor about himself. That’s good enough for us.
