Biography

Refreshingly FUNNY! Arsenio Hall stated it best, "Horace is like Sarah Lee,... nobody doesn't like him." CBS crowned this Detroit native as the new Star Search Comedy Champion and awarded Horace $100,000.00 and a development deal for his own show. Horace has the distinction of holding the highest score in the show's history, a perfect 20 stars from the celebrity judges and 19 stars from the live home audience.

Who would have thought that an academic scholarship to The University of Michigan, would produce one of the brightest and creative 'comedic' minds of this generation? Throughout his 13 year career, Horace has shared the stage with Bernie Mac, Dave Chappelle and Bill Cosby. H.B. is willing to perform anywhere a crowd will gather, (comedy clubs, churches, theatres, corporations, schools, etc). Most impressive is his ability to adapt to his audience, regardless of their gender, religion, ethnicity or credit score. Whether the audience is 100 couples at a marraige retreat in New York or 28,000 at Phillips Arena in Atlanta, GA, Horace consistently delivers STAND-OUT, STAND-UP performances."
H. B.'s hard work paid dividends when he received the opportunity to work with one of his major comedy role models, Sinbad. In 2002-03 He was the opening act on Sinbad's International Tour. Although H.B. is a headliner, he still accepts the pleasure of working with Sinbad today.

Some of Horace's television appearances include "The CBS Early Show", "CTN Live", "BET Comic View" and "HA! Stand Up Showcase". Horace was also nominated for Best New Artist in The National Association of Campus Activities (NACA).

Horace is able to make each performance a once-in-a-lifetime event. Once you have seen Horace H.B. Sanders perform, you'll know why people say the "H.B." stands for... HILARIOUS BROTHER!
