The hottest comedy tour of the spring and summer is scheduled to kick off in a little over a month. Starting March 31 in Atlantic City, Martin Lawrence will be leading a star-studded comedy tour across North America for a total of 16 shows scheduled to liven up arenas until mid-June. Titled the LIT AF Tour, Lawrence will be joined on various dates by fellow comedians including SNL alum Jay Pharoah, J.B. Smoove (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Michael Blackson and Rickey Smiley (“Rickey Smiley For Real”), just to name a few.
The all-star comedy run will feature Lawrence as the master of ceremonies as it makes its way throughout major cities across the U.S. throughout the spring. Notable stops on the upcoming run include a show at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center, Atlanta’s Philips Arena, Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Professional funnymen Deon Cole, Bruce Bruce, Adele Givens and Benji Brown will also join Lawrence on select dates throughout the tour. Tickets for the upcoming shows are on sale now or will be opening to the public starting Feb. 23, and can be purchased by clicking here.
Since starting his journey by performing in New York City clubs back in the 1980s, Lawrence has gone on to have one of the more successful comedy careers over the last three decades. Day one fans will remember him as the smooth talking, fedora-wearing DJ from the “House Party” film series, while younger generations will know him from more recent Hollywood blockbusters including the “Bad Boys” and “Big Mama’s House” franchises. More recently, the 52-year-old entertainer released his “Martin Lawrence Doin' Time: Uncut” stand-up special via Showtime back in the fall of 2016, which followed a national headlining tour by the same name earlier that year.
