(LOS ANGELES) — If you hear the words, “Watch Out Deh Now,” then you know that it’s more than a heed to action, but rather the trademark catcall for funnyman and radio personality J. Anthony Brown. Well, if you want to hear more witty banter from Brown, then you’re in luck. The comedian just launched the J. Anthony Brown Radio Show on the weekends: two hours of comedy, counting down Billboard’s weekly top Urban AC hits with lots of comedy, pop culture, sketches and interviews, plus his famous “murdered hits” song parodies.

About the J. Anthony Brown Radio Show | the team
The J. Anthony Brown Radio Show is the brainchild of veteran radio executive Sandra Smith, who’s also in the driver’s seat, handling affiliate sales and co-executive producer duties of the show. Prior to this gig, Smith served eight years as the senior director of affiliate relations for Radio One and Reach Media, affiliating such top-rated, syndicated radio shows as the Tom Joyner Morning Show, the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, and the D.L. Hughley Show. In that capacity, she worked with more than 200 stations, and their audience of 15 million listeners per week. She also enjoyed a distinguished career in the music industry, holding various senior management positions in the urban promotions departments at Capital Records, Motown Records and Atlantic Records, respectively. Brown also tapped Niele Anderson as co-executive producer; plus, his co-host of the radio show. Formerly, Anderson served as a Radio One on-air personality and producer as well as KDAY-FM in Los Angeles. She’s also the former religion editor of the Los Angeles Sentinel, the largest African American newspaper West of the Mississippi. When she’s not on the air with Brown, Anderson is managing Brown’s comedy club, the J Spot Comedy Club, and keeping her finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the world of comedy.

A Little More About J. Anthony Brown
As luck would have it, the South Carolina native began his career in entertainment by accident after relocating to
Atlanta in 1972. He was pursuing a career as a clothing designer, and found himself $316 short of tuition money. To raise some funds, Brown visited a local club and entered a gong show contest. The one-time tailor was asked back to the venue, and later transformed it into a city hot spot as word of his natural wit traveled quickly. And as they say, the rest is history.
Brown later left Atlanta for Hollywood, landing a job as head staff writer for the ground-breaking, Emmy-winning late night talk show, “The Arsenio Hall Show.” Other writing credits include the “Tom Joyner TV Show,” “Steve Harvey’s Big Time,” “Me and the Boys,” and “The Parent ‘Hood.”
In addition to his other television credits mentioned above, Brown hosted two consecutive seasons of BET’s “Comic View,” as well as performances on “Def Jam,” “It’s Showtime at the Apollo” and “Evening at the Improv.”
