Comedian, actor, director and producer  Martin Lawrence will return to the stage as the host of 2018’s hottest comedy event: the  LIT AF Tour, featuring an amazing lineup of comedic talent and one of the stops is at Verizon Arena in North Little Rock.  Coming off the 20th anniversary of Def Comedy Jam, where he is known for his legendary hosting, Lawrence has made a triumphant return to the stand-up stage wowing audiences with his signature style of hilarious stories, social commentary and more. The LIT AF Tour stars Lawrence as your high-powered host who presents a fire lineup of comedians including  DeRay Davis,  JB Smoove,  Rickey Smiley,  Michael Blackson,  Jay Pharoah,  Deon Cole,  Bruce Bruce,  Adele Givens and  Benji Brown.

Martin Lawrence started in stand-up comedy at the legendary The Improv, where he honed his talents until he was asked by Russell Simmons to host his groundbreaking comedy series Def Comedy Jam on HBO. From there, Lawrence became a household name after his hugely popular self-titled TV show, Martin, was an instant hit with TV viewers. He starred for five years as not only the title character, but other support characters like the sassy Sheneneh and Mama Payne, who became comedy classics. Lawrence would later go on to star in comedy blockbusters like Bad Boys 1&2 A Thin Line Between Love and Hate, which he also directed and Big Momma’s House, 1, 2 & 3 where he once again proved his talent for creating and acting as multiple characters in one storyline.

“Being on the road with this group of funny AF comedians is a blast,” Lawrence said. “No two shows are the same we all bring something different to the party.”

The show will take place on Friday, December 7 and tickets range from as low as $39.50 up to $119.50. Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 27 at 10:00 a.m.

Tickets will be available on Ticketmaster’s website or at the Verizon Arena Box Office.
