Mr. Leory Brown.jpg

Leroy S. Brown. The show's main protagonist, Mr. Brown is a church deacon who's very proud about being saved. He has one brother, Larry "L.B." Brown, who is never mentioned in the series but appears in the film, and one sister, Vera. He was married years ago, but his wife died; in the original Tyler Perry plays, they had a daughter, but the character was never mentioned in the films and only shown in the play "Madea's Family Reunion". In "Madea's Class Reunion" he learns that he has a daughter, Cora Simmons, the result of a prom-night escapade with Mabel "Madea" Simmons. Brown isn't overbright (mentally, that is; the word more aptly describes his outrageous dress sense) and he has the wiseguy role, making fun of characters like Edna and Reggie; but he is a nice, caring, giving man. He works part-time as a hospital janitor and also as a school enforcement officer (he once beat up a teacher he thought had done something wrong). He is somewhat good at karate, busting out his "Kangaroo" move. His catchphrases include "Stop being nasty!", "What the what?", and "The Devil is a lie!" Running gags involve Brown calling Edna different kinds of animals, making fun of Cora's fiancé' Reggie's weight, and otherwise being open about his dislike for this future son-in-law. In one episode Brown begins to deal with his diabetes. Although he has used many variations to what the middle initial "S" is in his name, in one episode it is revealed his middle name is Sakagawea (pronounced sah-kuh-jeh- Mr. Brown and Mattie had a daughter named Aquaneesha who appears in Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion The Play. It was also revealed in Tyler Perry's Madea's Class Reunion that Cora is his daughter, but in Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family The Movie they take a DNA test and the results show that he isn't her father, even though Madea thinks he is. He has two siblings, brother L.B. and sister Vera, a half-sister named Brenda, a sister-in-law Sarah, a nephew Will, portrayed by Lamman Rucker, nephew-in-law Gerald, is portrayed by Terry Philips, nieces Milay (portrayed by Tamika Scott) and Sasha Brown. In the T.V. Series, Meet the Browns, Mr. Brown has strong feelings toward Edna.
