Community Center are pleased to announce actor, host, comedian BD Freeman will be
performing a few pieces from his brand new one person show “Manic Impressive!”; a
hilarious opus of BD sharing his manic impressions of a world gone coo-coo. He will be
performing on stage at the Juneteenth Day Celebration on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at
3:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
BD became a well-known signature star and a comedic audience favorite while
appearing for 9 seasons on VH1’s “The Greatest” and the “I Love The …” show, and
the films “No Stranger Pilgrims” and “Carver Cove”. His hilarious monologues and
impression along with a natural, easy going style have put him on stages across the
country, including The Improv, the Comedy Store, and The Laugh Factory.
BD’s brothers Jeffrey and Jerry Freeman will be opening his show with some original
short comedy sets. With such a hilarious trio of performers, we encourage guests to
arrive early to find good seats and enjoy the show.
It is an honor for BD to travel from Hollywood, back to his hometown to perform for such
a memorable occasion and celebration. Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth
Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19,
1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the
emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South.
