Comedian, actor, director and producer Martin Lawrence will take the Wang Theatre stage on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 8:00PM, as part of the Doin’ Time: Uncut Live Tour, his first stand-up tour in four years.
Martin Lawrence started in stand-up comedy at 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. Lawrence later went on to star in comedy blockbusters like Bad Boys, A Line Between Love and Hate, which he also directed, and Big Momma’s House, where he proved his talents in creating and acting as multiple characters in one storyline.
