David Mann has been outspoken about his Christian faith since getting his start in gospel legend Kirk Franklin’s choir decades ago, but he doesn’t want to be known as just a Christian comedian.

The 49-year-old, whose face is well-known as a comedic element in 11 Tyler Perry films like “Meet The Browns,” is currently embarking on the “Rebirth of Comedy Tour” with the likes of Christian comedians Akitunde, Mark Gregory and Christian rapper Big Redd.
