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.”
