During the “Reunion Road Trip: It’s a Different World” special that took place on Tuesday, June 22, Sinbad narrated how Cosby saved his job.

Speaking to his fellow castmates from the show, the actor said, “So I heard that they were looking for a comic to warm up the audience. I said, ‘what’s that?’. I have never warmed up a studio audience. So I lied to get the job.”

During the show’s auditions, Sinbad began to cook up shows in which he’d previously warmed an audience. He mentioned “Magnum P.I.,” to which Jasmine Guy responded, “Magnum P.I. don’t have no warm-up, it’s a drama,” while smiling. Sinbad responded that Magnum P.I. is a show set “outside with no studio audience.” He continued, “They were about to fire me right then and Cosby said, ‘no.’ He said, ‘This man should be on TV.’”

Some fans praised Sinbad for overcoming obstacles and opening doors for stand-up comics to be actors as well. One fan said, “It used to be rare to see stand up comics who were also actors. Now we everywhere thanks to men like Sinbad.”

Another one expressed their appreciation for the show, saying, “It’s was such a blessing to have seen this show air as child….. I’m so glad teens and young adults can watch it today! A remake could never do it justice.”

Someone else wrote, “This show was everything to all of us. Can’t wait to watch this!”

The show was NBC’s byproduct of “The Cosby Show” and was created to tell the story of Denise Huxtable as she attended an HBCU. Eventually, Huxtable became less of the focus, and the attention shifted to the other college students like Whitley Gilbert-Wayne, Dwayne Wayne, Ron Johnson Jr., Winifred “Freddie” Brooks, among others.
