    Damn Gina, looks like 2020 is going to be Martin Lawrence’s year. Not only is he returning to the big screen with Will Smith in Bad Boys for Life, but he’s heading back on to the road for a new edition of “The LIT AF Tour”.

    Presented by AEG, the new stand-up comedy tour comes two years after the original run. Past guests Rickey Smiley, DeRay Davis, Jay Pharoah, and Bruce Bruce will rejoin Lawrence for the nationwide jaunt, alongside new additions Hannibal Buress, Lil’ Rel, Lil’ Duval, and Tommy Davidson. Also appearing at select dates are Michael Blackson, Adele Givens, Earthquake, B. Simone, and Donnell Rawlings.

    “Being on the road with this group of funny AF comedians is a blast,” Lawrence said in a statement. “Bringing the tour back out on the road is always exciting, no two shows are the same and we all bring something different to the party.”


    The bill will vary between each stop on the 29-date trek, which kicks off January 31st in Washington, DC. Other cities on the itinerary include Birmingham, Raleigh, Detroit, Atlanta, Baton Rouge, Memphis, Brooklyn, Ontario, Chicago, Jacksonville, and Las Vegas. The whole thing wraps in literal paradise with a May 30th show in Honolulu, Hawaii.
