Bad Boys
and Martin star of television and silver screen Martin Lawrence is back to his roots of stand-up, hosting a badass collection of comedy friends on the Lit AF Tour. Lawrence, the creator of the acrobatic and absurdist comedy hour You So Crazy, will be performing and hosting. It's a dual skill he mastered hosting Def Comedy Jam, when Marty Mar had crowds convulsing out of their seats before ushering on a wild-ass friend to keep the good times rolling. In typical Lawrence fashion, he continues to keep outrageously funny company; the Lit AF Tour also features Chicago radio king Rickey Smiley, Barbershop and Semi-Pro silly-man DeRay Davis, Def Comedy destroyer Adele Givens and Comicview's Clayton Thomas.
