Martin Lawrence Has a New ‘Uncut’ Stand-Up Special Coming Out Soon
Martin Lawrence is back on stage in his first stand-up comedy special in 14 years.
The special, dubbed, Martin Lawrence Doin’ Time: Uncut, will be the first since 2002's Martin Lawrence: Runteldat.
Although it won't be live, the special was filmed at Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles during Lawrence’s Doin’ Time: Uncut Live tour earlier this year.
According to a press release, Lawrence will give “impressions and insights" on "everything from sex and relationships to President Obama, Bill Cosby, Hollywood and more" in the upcoming special.
"I look forward to having my third concert film premiere on Showtime," said Lawrence said in a press statement. “Fourteen years is a long time between concert specials and I am excited to know that my TV audience will be able to enjoy this show as if they came to see me live."
And his fans certainly enjoy it. His last special earned $20 million dollars, a whopping profit considering the production cost was $3 million. But that's not the only thing Marty Mar's fans can be rejoicing right now. The third installment for the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys For Life, is also underway with the famous duo, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, reprising their roles as Detective Mike Lowrey and Detective Marcus Burnett, respectively. So far, it's set to hit theaters on Jan. 12, 2018.
Martin Lawrence Doin’ Time: Uncut will air on Showtime on Sept. 9 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
