MARTIN LAWRENCE TO RETURN FOR FIRST STAND-UP SPECIAL IN 14 YEARS. SHOWTIME PICKS IT UP FOR THE FALL

On the heels of a sold-out national tour, Martin Lawrence hits the stage in this long-awaited stand-up special, “Martin Lawrence Doin’ Time: Uncut,” premiering Friday, September 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime on-air, on demand and over the internet.

Filmed live at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, in “Doin’ Time: Uncut” Lawrence touches on everything from sex and relationships, to President Obama, Bill Cosby, Hollywood and more, promising an “unforgettable night” that will “leave viewers in hysterics, from start to finish.”

Says Lawrence in a press statement: “I look forward to having my third concert film premiere on Showtime… 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.”

Directed by David Raynr, “Martin Lawrence Doin’ Time: Uncut” is executive produced by Lawrence and Studio71’s Gary Binkow and Michael Green. Producers include Barry Ehrmann, Robert Lawrence, Rae Proctor, Sean Lampkin and Michael Hubbard with production company You So Crazy and Studio71.
