This tour will be Lawrence's first comedy tour since 2016 and it's titled the “Y’all Know What It Is!” tour.

The tour is set to launch soon after the June 7 release of the highly anticipated Bad Boys: Ride or Die feature film, reuniting Lawrence with co-star Will Smith.

“Comedy gives me that instant gratification,” Lawrence says. “Seeing the fans up close and in person, making people laugh, doing what I love most, this is what it’s all about for me. But hey…y’all know what it is!”

“Y’all Know What It Is!” is an all-new stand-up show and fresh one-hour set where Martin brings the real talk and finds the funny in everything from family to culture as only he can.

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m. local. To purchase tickets, visit
