As you know Martin Lawrence is officially back on the road with his current tour and special, Doin Time. The tour marks a huge return for Lawrence in the stand-up world after a long hiatus. In a new talk with Laugh Spin; Martin touched on his run back on stage which even included a night he saw Eddie Murphy on stage that inspired his career.
LAUGH SPIN: In the opening of this special you spoke a little bit about going to see Eddie Murphy and that sort of made up your mind that you wanted to become a comedian. Can you tell me a little bit more about that experience?
It was a beautiful experience because I was a big fan. I drove two hours to see him in Richmond and when I was watching him perform I was thinking, “He is so good!” On the way home, I said to myself, “I got work to do! If want to be as good as Eddie I have a lot of work to do!” From that point on I just kept working really hard on my material.
