Funnyman Martin Lawrence got his first big break on Star Search. He then rocketed to fame as an edgy, honest and totally unpredictable standup comic. On the small screen, his self-named sitcom, Martin, ran for five hit seasons. He then entertained audiences on the big screen in hits like Bad Boys and Big Momma's House.
After all his success, he is finally making his first Oprah Show appearance! "We watch you every day in the office in L.A., my mother and all us," he says. "And I go, 'Mama, I ain't been on there yet, Mama.' She said, 'You will, baby. Someday you will.'"
