An Evening with Sinbad
For more than two decades, comic powerhouse Sinbad has courted laughs with a clean standup style that teases the hilarity out of quotidian activities, earning him a spot among Comedy Central's Top 100 Greatest Standups of All Time. Eschewing profanity, the comic zeroes in on the common everyday experience, quipping about relationships, ordering at McDonald's, and the outrageous price hikes of rocket fuel. Sinbad amps up the humor of simple situations with a malleable face that exaggerates expressions and a confident delivery that vocalizes inner thoughts to hilarious effect. Unlike knock-knock jokes and adaptations of Thomas Pynchon novels, the funnyman's style translates well to the small and silver screen, leading to appearances in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Celebrity Apprentice, and Jingle All the Way.
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
