country's most popular comedy mini-features, "The Cla'ence Update of
CBS' The Young and the Restless.
Comedy Fans know him as Brad Sanders...actor / writer / producer and voice behind
"THE Cla'ence UPDATE."
Update" was conceived as a bit for Sanders' nightclub act. Sanders debuted his
soap update at the Comedy Corner club in Dallas, Texas where it caught the attention of
radio personality Tom Joyner. Joyner invited Sanders to perform the first radio
broadcast of the Update for his top-rated morning show. After its successful radio
bow, the Update aired as a live broadcast (by telephone) to a number of radio
stations. Today, a syndication story, "The Cla'ence Update" is a broadcast
to more than 100 radio stations across the United States.
Cla'ence's success with "The Young & Restless" led Brad Sanders into new
ventures with CBS television. Although the network has come to rely on his
professional vocal work, fans can now match the familiar "voice of CBS daytime"
with a face. Sanders promotes the network's daytime line-up in a series of funny and
innovative on-camera promotional spots.
"On the Phone with Ti-Rone," another product from the Sanders' hit factory,
features his other persona, Ti-Rone. An "urban Dear Abby," Ti-Rone answers
listener's letters and phone calls with a little common sense advice. Over 100 radio
stations carry "On the Phone with Ti-Rone" which is syndicated by Sanders'
Brad Sanders' writing and production talents are evidenced by his success with "It's
Your World," a fully produced short form soap opera currently airing on the
nationally syndicated "Tom Joyner Morning Show." Sander's co-created, "It's
Your World," a soap opera mini-feature with comedian Myra Jay. His writing
skills have made this weekly syndicated radio feature a national hit.
Cla'ence and Ti-Rone are characters Sanders brought to life on the nightclub stage.
In fact, comedy is where it all began. One can often find Sanders working out new material
on stage at Hollywood's Laugh Factory, making guest appearances on TV comedy shows and
headlining gigs at some of the country's top clubs and concert venues.
In addition to his radio, television and nightclub careers, Sanders' film resume continues
to grow with film roles that include animated feature "Bebe's Kids," and feature
films, "Fear of a Black Hat," "Hollywood Shuffle" and
