LOS ANGELES, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Former California gubernatorial candidate Gary Coleman has signed as a political analyst with All Comedy Radio, the new Hollywood-based radio network said.

Coleman, who finished eighth out of 135 ballot candidates in last week's California recall election, will begin his on-air commentaries Friday, the network said.

ACR Chairman Kent Emmons, a supporter of Coleman's candidacy, said: "After the contract signing we did high-fives. Well, to be honest, we did fives."

Coleman is best known as a child star on the television program, "Diff'rent Strokes."
