Bradley Freeman, Jr has been a puppeteer since he was 5 years old. From that time on it was his dream to become a Muppet performer. He would practice everyday after school lip-synching to the sketches from Season 1 of The Muppet Show. All through elementary, middle, and high school Bradley took puppets around to mess around with his friends, and to give them lessons in the television style of puppetry. After high school Bradley began creating, building, and performing original characters. In 2018 Sesame Street held a workshop to train young puppeteers from around the world. Out of over 400 international applicants, he was one of 30 selected to participate. This got him on the Sesame Streets radar, and several years later they held auditions for a new character named Wes. After a long audition process he got the part, and since then his world has completely changed for the better. Along with playing Tamir on Sesame Street, he has worked on shows like The View, Helpsters, Michael Bublé’s Christmas in the City, The Muppets Mayhem and more.
