About David Mann
I have just learned that David Mann net worth reached $5 million and I must say I am impressed. After all, there are plenty of actors who have been busy working in entertainment industry for decades and their fortunes did not even come anywhere close to a million. And when it comes to David, he started his professional career in the early 1990s and since then has not developed any significant character except that of Mr. Brown. I don’t know how about you, but this makes me curious about the sources of David Mann net worth.
Although the artist we are speaking about started his professional career in 1992, there has been no significant increase in David Mann net worth right until 1999. That year he appeared in a play I Can Do Bad All by Myself, which was written and directed by Tyler Perry. You may not know this man, but you sure have heard about his character Madea. Both Madea and Mr. Brown (I Can Do Bad All by Myself marked the first official appearance of these fictional characters) seemed to be really popular among the audience and the two artists, Tyler Perry and David, went on to work on variety of projects together. We will discuss some of these projects in the following paragraph, but before that, here is an interesting fact: twenty years after the premiere of the play I Can Do bad All by Myself, Tyler released romantic musical comedy-drama film, which was written, directed and produced by him. The movie received mixed to positive reviews and experienced a considerable commercial success, grossing over $50 million in box office revenues.
Following the debut in the late 1990s Mann went on to star on a number of stage productions by Tyler Perry, as well as movies and television series created by this artist. For example, the actor featured on “Madea’s Family Reunion”, Madea’s Class Reunion, What’s Done in the Dark and Madea’s Big Happy Family. In every one of these productions Mann has portrayed Mr. Brown, the father of Madea’s daughter Cora. When during the interview aalbc.com asked the actor how much of the character was in the script and how much he was able to contribute to its creation, he replied: “It’s about 50-50. They kinda give me the skeleton, and I’ll put the meat on it. A lot of it is ad-libbed. They’ll give me my lines, and I’ll take them and just go from there. Sometimes, an episode might be running a few minutes short, so they’ll just give me that room to go in and add my little brand of comedy.” I think you would agree that together with Perry, David has managed to create an unforgettable character. If this was not the case, David Mann net worth would not stand at $5 million.
