The family of actor and comedian Sinbad is speaking out about his recovery from a stroke in 2020, saying in an update that the television and movie star "has made significant progress beyond what anyone expected, but there are still miles to go."

Sinbad, who was born David Adkins, gained fame with his HBO stand-up specials and work on sitcoms such as “A Different World” and the short-lived “The Sinbad Show.”

He has also acted in several films, including “Houseguest,” “First Kid” and the Christmas comedy “Jingle All the Way.”

He had a stroke on Oct. 25, 2020, as a result of a blood clot that went from his heart to his brain, prompting him to undergo “a thrombectomy to remove the clot and restore normal blood flow to the brain,” according to a website his family created to keep fans updated on his journey.

Sinbad was able to talk and move with discomfort after the surgery. His initial prognosis was good before he suffered another blood clot the next day, so he underwent the same surgery again. He was taken to a different hospital, where doctors said he was experiencing brain swelling, his family said.
