Named one of the top 100 comedians of all time by Comedy Central.
David Adkins was born on Nov. 10, 1956 in Benton Harbor, MI. After college, Adkins served in the U.S. Air Force as a boom operator, based at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, KS. On evenings off, Adkins often performed stand-up comedy in downtown Wichita; even competing as a comic in the USAF Talent Contest in 1981. He eventually toured with the U.S. Air Force Tops in Blue program, where active members performed shows all over the world.
Having left his military career behind, Adkins went full blast with his acting career. Under the stage name Sinbad, he started making the rounds on the comedy nightclub circuit in Los Angeles, as well as competing on "Star Search" (CBS, 1983 -1995), a popular talent competition show for aspiring musicians and comics famously hosted by Ed McMahon. He won seven times, but eventually lost out to comic John Kassir in the final round. Sinbad's exposure on "Star Search" led to a featured role on the short-lived comedy series "The Redd Foxx Show" (ABC, 1986) and a guest spot on the Golden Globe-winning sitcom, "The Cosby Show" (NBC, 1984-1992) starring Bill Cosby as Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, the patriarch of an upper-middle class family living in Brooklyn, NY.
