Sinbad could be the spokesperson for the dont believe everything you read campaign. Last year, calls came flooding in soon after rumors of the comedian/actors death spread to Wikipedia (sorry, college kids, find a better source for your term paper). His managers and family were inundated with condolences, despite Sinbads, you know, being alive. But the comic did appreciate the attention. I wish that people wouldve called me back like this when I was alive, he told the online publication EURweb. I gotta die more often. Seriously, my death is gonna be my comeback. And apparently it was. Sinbad has been back on the stand-up touring circuit sharing stories like this as well as other tales from the famous life and his childhood. Its all delivered in his signature pacing-back-and-forth, physical style (which is pretty impressive seeing as how the dude is damn near seven feet tall). See the former and undead star of A Different World at 8 p.m. Verizon Wireless, 520 Texas. For tickets and information, call 713-629-3700 or visit www.verizonwirelesstheater.com. $37.50 to $47.50.
Sat., Dec. 6, 8 p.m., 2008
