Ingeniously funny and extraordinarily talented are understatements when it comes to the multifaceted actor and NAACP Image® Award winner for Outstanding Actor In A Comedy Series (Meet The Browns, “Mr. Brown”), David Mann. A native of the "Bible belt" state of Texas, David masterfully showcases his God given talents in today's most dynamic and distinguished genre.
Accentuating his already natural gift of making people laugh as a youth, David set his sights on acting. Finding his natural element, David was commonly cast as the production's funnyman where his infectious comedic flair was visibly realized and fittingly unleashed. His accomplished performances quickly gained notable recognition advancing his diversified image into public notice.
In short order, David joined forces with world-renowned producer, director, actor, and playwright, Tyler Perry. The illustrious innovator had written, directed, and produced numerous plays including the hit stage play, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself,” where David remarkably immortalized the intrusively nosey, wisecracking, ashy-kneed, and outrageously funny neighbor, "Mr. Brown." As was apropos, David's bravo performance led the way for “Mr. Brown” to become a regular in Perry's stage and film productions and in the hilarious television comedy, “Meet The Browns.”
David reprised the role of “Mr. Brown” for audiences on 2019’s massive Madea’s Farewell Tour. The tour was a sure-fire hit, playing to packed theaters across the country.
David and his wife, Grammy®-winning recording artist and actress Tamela Mann, together helm Tillymann Entertainment. They starred together in the NAACP Image® Award-winning docu-series “The Manns” and the hit comedy “Mann & Wife.” In 2018, the Manns released their first book and joint album, Us Against the World: Our Secrets to Love, Marriage, and Family. The book won a NAACP Image® Award for Outstanding Literary Work and the album continues to garner top-charting singles including the current Urban AC track, “Ups & Downs.”
