Martin Lawrence Returns To Stand-Up For First Time In Eight Years With New Arena Tour

Comedy legend Martin Lawrence has announced his return to stand-up comedy after eight years for his newest comedy tour, Y'all Know What It Is! Tour.

The new show will head to nearly 40 cities across the U.S. through April 2025 including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Vegas, Dallas, Brooklyn and Washington, D.C. This new tour immediately follows the release of the highly anticipated Bad Boys: Ride or Die heading to theaters June 7th, the fourth installment in the Bad Boys franchise starring alongside Will Smith.

"Y’all Know What It Is!" is a fresh one hour set where Martin brings the real talk and finds the funny in everything from family to culture as only he can. The comedy maestro is also bringing a bolstered roster of comics hand-picked personally by him joining along the tour including Adele Givens, B. Simone, Chico Bean, DC Youngfly, Deon Cole, Desi Banks, Gary Owen, Jess Hilarious, Mojo Brookzz, Ms. Pat, Rickey Smiley and more. Guest comedians vary by city.

"Comedy gives me that instant gratification," says Lawrence in a press release. "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!"
