Refreshing and contagiously funny! The kind of funny that sticks to your bones. Horace Sanders engages the audience by showing them the hilarious moments in their own lives. He combines relatable material with high energy and quick improv abilities to make each performance a once-in-a-lifetime event. Arsenio Hall stated it best, “Horace is like Sarah Lee, nobody doesn’t like him. Very few comedians can have kids, adults and even grandparents together, laughing at the same time about totally different things.”
While most comedians dream of having a perfect set, Horace Sanders actually did; and he has the ‘stars’ to prove it. The Detroit native became the CBS Star Search Comedy Champion with a perfect score of 20 stars from the celebrity judges. Combined with 19 stars from the live home audience, he received the highest total in the show’s history also grabbing the $100,000 and a development deal for his own sit-com.
Horace Sanders received his comedic break while studying at The University of Michigan. Performing in a variety of venues (colleges, churches, clubs, charity events, etc.) helped to develop his versatility and style. This soon led to appearances with notable entertainers such as Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, LeAnn Rimes, Michael Jackson, Chris Tucker and the legendary Bill Cosby.
Formerly co-host of the “Morning Show” in Detroit on KISS 102.7 FM, Horace has been featured on CTN Live, The Comcast Comedy Hour, BET Comic View and Comedy Central. While completing an international tour as the opening act for Sinbad, he hosted the 2003 BET broadcast of the Savoy Soul Beach Music Festival in Aruba and in 2004. In June of 2004, Horace Sanders performed along with Steve Harvey, J. Anthony Brown and Sinbad before an estimated 80,000 at Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Mega-Fest in Atlanta, GA. Horace also starred in “FUNNY,” a film exploring the world of stand-up comedy, which was released in Summer 2004. Spring 2004 also marked the release of his first live CD and DVD entitled “FUNNY TO ME.” Once you have seen Horace H.B. Sanders perform you will know what the H.B. stands for…Hilarious Brother!
