Sinbad: Make Me Wanna Holla

7.01 h 30 min201413+
"Make Me Wanna Holla" is an all-out stand-up special featuring a riotous original performance by the king of comedy, Sinbad, recorded live in Detroit in his home state of Michigan. It covers everything he sees in his life, from the life advice his parents gave him, to why he is tired of people with no talent having clothing lines, as well as explaining who he "really" is.

Good Clean and TImeless

It seems some of today's comedians are more dedicated to profanity and perversion than to the art of humor. I'm finding Kevin Hart less and less comedic as he increasingly stumbles across ill-fitted bouts of profanity, that seem to do no more than interrupt his comedic flow. This is especially true of Chris Rock, whose comedy is no match for his profanity. Profane language is a natural part of some forms of comedy but there seems to be an instance on fitting profanity into much of today's comedy, even it it does not naturally fit.

Sinbad has made a commitment to clean comedy and thus his comedic flow is much sharper and it flows much more naturally than that of those who feel the need to add profanity for profanity's sake. This is classic observational humor and social commentary - from the perspective of a Baby Boomer but fitted for all. Great job Sinbad.

Sinbad is the best! Oh man!! He makes me laugh! His comedy is original and clean. He is improptu and interactive. Each show has a current flavor because he is making a lot of it up as he goes by his interactions with his audience. He has a really funny religious interaction at the end of this video. His daughter sings on it as well. Just a great way to spend an hour or so laughing!!

The best part was his choice of hair color
Verified purchase
For years I have seen this guy on the fringes of notoriety and wondered what exactly is causing him to believe he is relevant, clever, talented and humorous. This ‘special’ (as incongruous as it can be) resurrects hackneyed bits and the same ridiculous stereotypes we have heard from a broad swath of comedy practitioners. Sinbad has once again proven that despite a serious lack of acumen, if you have the right connections in management, there will be a place for you, albeit without laughter. His childish whine does not serve to enhance the fact he uses no profanity since most of the cursing came after I realized I looked at this for more than four minutes. I watched this video with a continuously serious eye roll and the only smirk came when I read a text on my phone from a friend.

I would never tell you not to waste your time; however I will implore you not to do so with this drivel.

Very Funny and clean comedy (no cursing)
Verified purchase
It's hard to find clean stand up comedy nowadays and we typically need to put the kids to sleep before watching any stand up because of that. Sinbad keeps it 100% curse free and brings the funny.

Sinbad has been entertaining
Verified purchase
I saw this special and he started with this band, then he did some comedy that makes me laugh. And it was great that he didn't swear too much and he made the audience laugh! Heck, even if I never saw him live, at least I enjoyed his funny style.

Memphis Red or SeidenGang wanna hang?
Verified purchase
Yes, there is no real cursing but we get stuck with this phony alter ego, Memphis Red. Memphis Red (Sinbad) keeps asking Sinbad (Sinbad) if Memphis Red (Sinbad) can open for Sinbad (Sinbad). Hell no we say. We paid for the old inappropriate Sinbad (Sinbad) not this milquetoast Memphis Red (Sinbad).

Please bring back the f-bombing Sinbad, sans Memphis Red, with Sinbad wearing his SeidenGang jewelry again.

Good entertainment
Verified purchase
This was good but I enjoyed 'Where U Been' much better which was clean through and through. The only thing I could have done without was the albeit short barrage of racial slurs in one of his jokes, and I believe the audience agreed. All in all, Sinbad is King and I look for his brand of comedy each and every time!

Great Artist - Poor Editing
Verified purchase
I saw this when he did it live in theaters and it was fantastic! Sinbad always has a great show, but the editing on the dvd is horrible. It depicts his show as mediocre and it definitely wasn't mediocre. The live show was hilarious and everyone in the theater was laughing the entire time. Don't sleep on Sinbad, he's one of the greatest. A clean, funny and thought-provoking artist.
