Summary

A Conversation with the Mann is the remarkable fictional story of the life of black comedian extraordinaire Jackie Mann. Jackie is a poor boy from Harlem and the victim of abuse from his widowed, alcoholic father. But everything changes on the day he discovers the power of comedy. When his classmates make fun of his tattered clothes, Jackie turns everything around by freely poking fun at himself and soon has everyone on the floor with laughter. His amazing talent -- and raging ambition -- take him through the local club circuit to become the most sought-after comedic entertainer in opulent, 50s Las Vegas and beyond.
