*Summer and the rest of 2024 looks to be quite busy for Martin Lawrence. He plans to hit the road for the “Y’all Know What It Is!” national arena tour which he will headline.

LoveBScott reports the tour will kick off July 20 at the Gila River Casino in Chandler, AZ. The outing, which wraps up on April 5, 2025 in Little Rock, AR, arrives in nearly 40 cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Dallas, Brooklyn, and Washington, D.C.

A press release for the “Y’all Know What It Is!” tour described the event as “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.”

Special guest comedians personally hand-picked by Lawrence will vary by city. Among the guest humorists will be Adele Givens, B. Simone, Chico Bean, DC Young Fly, Deon Cole, Desi Banks, Gary Owen, Jess Hilarious, Mojo Brookzz, Ms. Pat, and Rickey Smiley.

“Comedy gives me that instant gratification,” Lawrence voiced in the release. “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!”
