Martin || Martin Lawrence on Boxing (Audio)


Hilarious audio skit about boxing. Martin kills it. From his 1993 Comedy CD "Talkin Shit".

Martin is an American TV sitcom that tackles on the macho, stubborn, derisive twenty-something radio deejay/talk show hosts named Martin Payne who played by Martin Lawrence. A man who worked at WZUP, an urban talk radio station in Detroit, Michigan for the first half of the series and the local cable-access TV station, Channel 51, for the second half until the series' end. He was offered by his own nationally syndicated talk show in Los Angeles, that needing him to move there. His girlfriend (and later, his wife) was Gina Waters played by Tisha Campbell who's an advertising executive who could, on an occasion, be as egotistical and badly behaved as Martin, but otherwise preserved a persistent degree head. Speaking of Gina's head, a common running gag was to poke fun at Gina for her large forehead. In the series ending, she was promoted to Senior Vice President of the ad office in Los Angeles after the Detroit office ended and forcing her to move there with Martin.

Martin's closest friends were Tommy Strong played by Thomas Mikal Ford and Cole Brown played by Carl Anthony Payne II. Tommy was a friendly, joyful guy who get the most irritated with Cole's stupidity out of everyone else in the gang, often commenting, "Cole... you stupid." Because no one ever knew what Tommy did for a living, a common running gag occurred whenever Tommy mentioned his job in a given situation- everyone exclaimed in unison, "You ain't GOT no job!" Cole Brown, who had previously played Theo's friend Cockroach on The Cosby Show, was a faithful yet idiotic airport attendant. Who initially had a crush on Gina's sassy, attitude-having best friend and co-worker Pamela James (Tichina Arnold, who co-starred with Campbell in the theatrical adaptation of the off-Broadway musical Little Shop of Horrors) Pam completed the circle of trusted friends. She and Martin had a love and hate relationship, as they constantly traded insulting wisecracks between one another, but were there for one another when it all came down to it.
