The Apollo audience is notoriously hard on amateurs, as anyone who’s watched all the televised versions of Amateur Night knows very well. Fortunately, veteran comedian Sinbad is far from an amateur.  His successful three-decade career has crossed genres from TV to film to the standup stage. Best known to many for his role as Coach Walter Oakes on the Black college sitcom “A Different World” he’s also done a reality show and several televised specials. Sinbad even took a backwards step into politics during the 2008 presidential election when he refuted then-candidate Hilary Clinton’s claims that she’d been near sniper fire on a trip to Bosnia. (Sinbad was a performer on the same tour.)
