Meet and Hear Stan and Hunter Freberg
An Evening of Legendary Careers, Laughter and Love
This is a free event! No ticket required!
Stan Freberg is one of America's best loved humorists, satirists, and keynote speakers. He is known worldwide as an award-winning composer, lyricist, singer, actor, writer and director. His albums and CDs have sold millions, reaching multi-generations of fans.
Starting at the age of 18, he began a lifetime career as a voice over actor doing over 400 Warner Bros. cartoons. He also was directed by Walt Disney himself, who chose Freberg to be the voice of the beaver in Lady and the Tramp. Presently Freberg does several voices for Garfield on Comedy Central.
The beginning of Freberg's radio career started with him appearing in a small part, on the Jack Benny show and culminated a few years later with actually replacing Jack Benny with the Stan Freberg Show on the CBS Radio Network.
During the same time period he helped create the award-winning children's program "Time For Beany" ("Beany & Cecil"), which received an Emmy for Best Children's Show three years in a row. He performed many characters including Dishonest John and the much loved Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent. Professor Albert Einstein was one of the show's millions of fans.
The Capitol Tower was Freberg's next home. During Freberg's Capitol years, he recorded such hits as "John and Marsha" (a take-off of the record appeared on Mad Men), "St George and the Dragonet" (featured on PBS Pioneers of Broadcasting), "Green $hristmas", and "Stan Freberg Presents The United States of America". He is known as one of the handful of Capitol Legendary
Recording Artists and served on the founding Board of Governors of NARAS where he personally created the word "Grammy" in 1957.
Radio, television, and print advertising were next. He is the original "Mad Man". There was no humor in advertising before Stan Freberg. Advertising Age magazine called him "The Father of the Funny Commercial."
Feature stories about Freberg have appeared in TIME, People, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous trade pulications. Interviews may also be found online at the Chicago Tribune and The Huffington Post. He has been a frequent guest on television shows ranging from "The Today Show" to "The Tonight Show".
