Cliff spent 35 years working as a police officer. He started his career in upstate New York working patrol for five years with the Livingston County Sheriff's Department. He then joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, and after 30 years of service, retired at the rank of Sergeant. Cliff started doing stand up comedy in high school. At his high school graduation party, he did his routine, and was hired by the band as their opener. Cliff continued working street patrol by day, and doing stand up at night, and soon became known as L.A's Comedy Cop. While working a foot beat at Universal City, a chance encounter with a show producer, resulted in his double life as a comedian and Deputy Sheriff, featured on a local television news show. Cliff studied comedy with Judy Carter in Los Angeles, who inspired him to start producing his own shows. Cliff produced comedy specials at the "Roxy" on Sunset, and the "Hollywood Palladium", where he headlined both shows. Cliff was asked to join a team at the Sheriff's Department tasked with teaching a court mandated sexual harassment policy. All members of the team were trained by outside consultants, and their competency in facilitating the program had to be approved by the court. Cliff soon found he had a much tougher crowd that he ever encountered in a night club. Cliff made sure that he became an expert in sexual harassment, so he could answer the tough questions, and be able to bring his sense of humor, without violating the policy he was teaching. Cliff understands the risk Corporations and meeting planners take in hiring outside entertainment. Cliff is committed to being hilarious, with actions and language that are also appropriate for the work place. Cliff will taylor 10 minutes to your organization. Cliff talks about the challenges of being a cop by day and a comedian by night. He likes self deprecating humor, attack mode, is just not his nature. Cliff continues to produce his own shows, and do some comedy club work. But he would rather be talking with and entertaining professional groups.

Cliff was such a good entertainer. He was exactly what we were looking for with our Comedy Fundraiser. With his talent and name recognition he helped raise over $8000. I cannot express how grateful we were to have found Cliff. I highly recommend using him and am currently getting ready to book him for next year!

I am always impressed with Cliff's comedy routine. He is always refining it and adding new material. I have attended his show 7-8 times now and it never gets old. He had the attendees doubled over in laughter. I thought due to the background of some of the attendees it may be a tough crowd, but everyone enjoyed the show. I received nothing but great compliments about his show and his material. Cliff Yates is a class act and someone I will hire for future events.
