“Comedy gives me that instant gratification,” Lawrence said. “Seeing the fans up close and in person, making people laugh, doing what I love most, this is what it’s all about for me. But hey…y’all know what it is!”

Lawrence launched his comedy career in New York City at the Improv Comedy Club. His breakthrough film role came courtesy of Spike Lee in the classic Do The Right Thing! 

Other film roles followed including House Party and Boomerang. He soon captured the attention of mega producer Russell Simmons who tapped Lawrence to host the groundbreaking HBO series Def Comedy Jam. In 1992, Lawrence landed his own hit series — Martin — garnering substantial ratings.

Following the finale of his self-titled comedy series, Lawrence starred in a string of top-grossing films including Life, Big Momma’s House, and the Bad Boys franchise. Lawrence returns to the Bad Boys franchise with Bad Boys: Ride or Die opening in theaters worldwide on Friday, June 7.

Tickets to each of the comedian’s upcoming live shows in the Magnolia State can be purchased here.
