Comedian Sinbad struggles to walk two years after suffering a Stroke

The comedian Sinbad is still trying to regain the ability to walk and talk following his 2020 stroke. The comedian’s family posted an update on social media showing a glimpse of his rehabilitation.

The update was made on Sinbad’s official Instagram page, Monday, Nov. 21st. The post included a photo of the 66-year-old stand-up comic doing some physical therapy, holding a walker with someone aiding him from behind.

Sinbad, a native of Benton Harbor, Michigan, suffered an ischemic stroke on Oct. 25, 2020. It was caused by a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain.

While performing surgery on him, Sinbad's doctors discovered bleeding that caused brain swelling. He had to be put into a medically induced coma and placed on a ventilator.

Sinbad lost movement on his left side and the ability to move his head. He spent 9 months in the hospital before returning home in July 2021 to continue therapy.

While the beloved comedian and actor has made progress, his family says the cost of his healthcare is taking a toll on them financially. A “gift” link is provided on a special website set up for Sinbad,, where fans can send donations to help pay for his ongoing treatment.
