Buddy is a stand-up comedian, and he has written comedy for DL Hughley, Jamie Foxx, and many more. His writing talents earned him a 2014 NAACP Image Award in the “Outstanding Comedy Series Award” category for the hit show Real Husbands of Hollywood starring Kevin Hart. In addition to his work as a performer and writer, Buddy is a tireless activist. He is sure to keep us all entertained as we award Scholarship Recipients and Honor the Mother of the Year.
