CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- July 22, 2013

Turning movie theaters into comedy clubs across the U.S. this summer, NCM
Fathom Events and New Wave Entertainment present the first in a series of
comedy specials with “SINBAD:Make Me Wanna Holla,”  an  exclusive cinema
event in select theaters on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 8:00 p.m. local time. The
one-night event features a riotous performance by the one and only Sinbad
featuring his stand-up routine that covers hilarious observations—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.

Pre-recorded live before an uproarious crowd at The Fillmore Detroit on August
2 in the comic’s home state of Michigan, “SINBAD: Make Me Wanna Holla” will
feature some exclusive footage—never to be shown again after the Aug. 22
event.

Presented in nearly 500 select movie theaters around the country through NCM’s
exclusive Digital Broadcast Network, tickets for “SINBAD: Make Me Wanna Holla”
are available at participating theater box offices and online at
www.FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater locations and prices,

“I’m excited to be doing my first stand-up special for movie theaters,” said
Sinbad. “This will be my funkiest stand-up ever. It’s time to know the dark
side—the Memphis red side of Sinbad.”

Sinbad, one of the world’s most beloved comedians, originally shot to fame in
the ‘80s with club shows and a star-making turn on the hit sitcom “A Different
World.” In addition to creating his successful series of stand-up specials for
HBO and Comedy Central, the veteran funnyman has starred in “The Sinbad Show,”
which earned him a1995Kids' Choice Awardsnomination for "Favorite
Television Actor,” as well as family comedies like “First Kid,” “Necessary
Roughness,”“Houseguest” and “Jingle All the Way.” Sinbad was also included on
"Comedy Central Presents: 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time."

“If you love to laugh like I do then you won’t want to miss Sinbad’s hilarious
comedy event from the comfort of your local movie theater this summer,” said
Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “He is one of
my favorite comics and this special Fathom event promises to be a side
splitting night of fun.”

Fathom Events and New Wave Entertainment, the premiere producer of stand-up
comedy specials, announced the series in May. The comedy series will feature
some of the biggest names in stand-up beginning with Sinbad this summer.

"New Wave could not be more excited about being in business with Sinbad and
taking his awesome comedy to the big screen for the first time!" said Brian
Volk-Weiss, president of production for New Wave Entertainment.
