If you've ever seen a Tyler Perry movie, you'll no doubt recognise David Mann as the neighbour of the memorable Madea Brown. However, this talented comic actor has been a regular fixture of the stand-up circuit for years. In addition to his work as a comedian, he's also established himself as a talented gospel singer and recording artist in his own right. Whatever branch of his talents you're looking to experience, see him live when you buy David Mann tickets online at StubHub.
David Mann - career beginnings and gospel singing success
Although today he's better known as an actor and comedian, David Mann actually started out his working life as a gospel singer. It was through singing that he met his wife Tamela Brown, another frequent collaborator of Tyler Perry. Before all of that however, Mann fine-tuned his talents as a performer. This Texas native was a regular at his high school drama club and became a frequent face at community theatre events, all the while juggling a burgeoning gospel career. His proximity to the bible belt worked in his favour and he became one of the most lauded singers in the region in just a few years.
Although an instantly recognisable face on the gospel circuit, it wasn't until pairing with comedy heavyweight Tyler Perry that David Mann became known to millions. Taking on the role of Mr. Brown in the Medea series and spin-off material, he became a serious contender on the comedy landscape.
David Mann - playing Mr. Brown and becoming a comic legend
David Mann commenced his ongoing partnership with Tyler Perry when he took on the role of nosy neighbour Mr. Brown in I Can Do Bad All By Myself. This memorable role would lead to further castings across media, with further spotlights in Medea's Family Reunion, Medea's Class Reunion and Meet the Browns. He's appeared in numerous Perry plays, television shows and stage productions over the years, making him one of Perry's most prolific performers.
Capitalising on his success as a big screen star, Mann turned his comic antics up a notch and began performing as a stand-up comedian, debuting his material to wide audiences across the country. The comedian regularly tours the US to sold-out crowds, combining material from his signature characters, experiences behind and in front of the camera, as well as his tenure as a world-class gospel singer.
