MARTIN LAWRENCE (Bobby Davis) has established himself as one of America's most popular actor/comedians with starring roles in such hit movies as "Big Momma's House,” "Bad Boys” and its sequel "Bad Boys II,” "Blue Streak” and "National Security.” Lawrence's many other screen credits include "Do the Right Thing,” "House Party,” "Talkin' Dirty After Dark,” "House Party 2,” "Boomerang,” "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate” (which he also co-wrote and directed), "Nothing to Lose,” "Life,” "What's the Worst That Could Happen?” and "Black Knight.” Most recently, he was seen in the box-office success "Big Momma's House II” as well as in the comedy "Rebound.” He also voiced the character of Boog in the animated "Open Season.”

Lawrence began his career as a stand-up comedian, gained major attention at Hollywood's legendary Improv, and shortly thereafter won a performance spot on TV's popular talent showcase "Star Search.” Columbia Television executives, impressed by his "Star Search” appearance, offered Lawrence his first acting job, a regular role on the sitcom "What's Happening Now!”

Lawrence was then personally chosen by music mogul Russell Simmons to host his groundbreaking showcase for young comedians, HBO's "Def Comedy Jam.” Lawrence worked on the show for two seasons and is credited with helping expose a new generation of stand-up comics, including Chris Tucker, Damon Wayans, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer.

The actor-comedian went on to co-create, executive produce and star in Fox Television's "Martin.” The hit sitcom, which ran from 1992-1997, earned three NAACP Image Awards and is one of several series credited with helping solidify the fledgling Fox network within the industry.

Lawrence has also starred in two hugely successful concert films: "You So Crazy” and "Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat” and has recorded the Billboard Top 10 concert album "Talkin' Shit” and the Grammy®-nominated "Funk It.” In March 2007, Lawrence will begin production on "The Better Man” for Universal. Additionally, he acts as executive producer for the STARZ original comedy program "Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-Up.” Episodes of the show will being airing in March.
