Overview

The show revolved around a macho, stubborn, derisive twenty-something radio deejay/talk show host named Martin Payne (played by Lawrence), who worked at WZUP, an urban talk radio station in Detroit, Michigan for the first half of the series and the local cable-access TV station, Channel 51, for the second half until the series' end, when he was offered his own nationally syndicated talk show in Los Angeles, requiring him to move there. His girlfriend (and later, his wife) was Gina Waters (played by Campbell), an ad executive who could, on occasion, be as egotistical and badly behaved as Martin, but otherwise maintained a level head. Speaking of Gina's head, a common running gag was to poke fun at Gina for her large forehead. In the series finale[1], she was promoted to Senior Vice President of the ad office in Los Angeles after the Detroit office ceased operations, necessitating her move there with Martin.

Martin's closest friends were Tommy Strong and Cole Brown. Tommy (played by Thomas Mikal Ford) was a friendly, exuberant guy who seemed to get the most irritated with Cole's stupidity out of everyone else in the gang, often commenting, "Cole... you stupid." Because no one ever knew what Tommy did for a living, a common running gag occurred whenever Tommy mentioned his job in a given situation- everyone exclaimed in unison, "You ain't GOT no job!" Cole Brown (played by Carl Anthony Payne II, who had previously played Theo's friend Cockroach on The Cosby Show) was a loyal yet idiotic airport attendant who initially had a crush on Gina's sassy, attitude-having best friend and co-worker Pamela James (Tichina Arnold, who co-starred with Campbell in the theatrical adaptation of the off-Broadway musical Little Shop of Horrors) Pam completed the circle of friends. She and Martin had somewhat of a love/hate relationship, as they constantly traded insulting wisecracks between each other, but were there for each other when it all came down to it. Ironically, Arnold is one of Lawrence's closest friends in real life.

Later in the series' run, Tommy and Pam dated each other exclusively for a while, then returned to just being friends. Cole's romantic interest for a couple of seasons was Big Shirley, a mountain of a woman who was seldom seen; when she was, it was only a shot of a portion of her huge frame, the joke - presumably - being that she was just too large to fit into the shot. Oddly enough in the episode "Baby, It's Cole'd in Here"[2], she is shown as just a large woman. Nothing more as the show began to depict her as more of a monster later on. In the final season, Cole found a kindred spirit in Shanice (played by Maura McDade), a dimwitted but well-meaning girl. They became engaged in the final episode.


Recurring characters

One of the trademarks of Martin was Lawrence playing multiple characters in the series, utilizing various costumes. The most notable of Lawrence's other roles on the show was that of Sheneneh Jenkins [3], a stereotypical "Detroit ghetto girl" and owner/operator of Sheneneh's Sho' Nuff Hair Salon, whom Lawrence played in drag. Momma Payne and Sheneneh were the only two characters Lawrence played in drag on the show and both women hated Gina. Though she's awkwardly tall and large, Sheneneh often characterizes herself as a "la-a-a-dy." She lived in an apartment across the hallway from Martin's, and factored into many of the sitcom's stories by picking fights out in the hallway. Her dialogue consistently makes use of ghetto-like catchphrases, such as "Aw-ight?", "Okaaaay?" "Oh no you di-in't", "Girl, I can hook you up." Sheneneh is always showily dressed to an excessive degree. She has very large painted fingernails. Her character is generally portrayed as being feisty and very mouthy. She's especially antagonistic towards Gina and Pam. Often, Gina will end up having to break up fights between Pam and Sheneneh, only to get dissed, herself, by Sheneneh. Sheneneh has many girlfriends who appeared occasionally in some episodes. They included Bonquisha (played by Kim Coles), Keylolo (played by rapper Yo-Yo), and her loudmouth girlfriend Laquita, (played by actress Simbi Khali). At the salon, she was assisted by a fellow stylist, Rhodesia (played by Kelly Jo Minter). For the rapper, see Ghetto (rapper). ... Look up Drag in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

  • Edna (Momma) Payne: Martin's shrill, extremely frenetic, and easily excited mother, who is overprotective of Martin and dislikes Gina immensely. One quote of Momma Payne's was when Gina politely asked if she would sit down. While acting like she was boxing and throwing fists into the air, Edna replied, "Hell naw! Momma's feet stay planted. Never know when I got to go two to the body and over to the hip." Momma Payne is known to wear baggy dresses and sneakers. Ironically, it is the only role in which Lawrence does not cover up his mustache with stage make-up. This is probably due to the fact that Lawrence thought it would be humorous to portray an elderly woman as having a thick mustache equal to that of her son.
  • Otis: an abrasive, stern potbellied old man, who's always seen while on his job as a security guard. Otis is abrasive towards every stranger he comes across, whether they seem like trouble or not. His trademark is to repeatedly bark the comments, "keep on moving. let's just keep on moving. let's keep it moving", at random strangers. He refers to any males as "Boy!" (pronounced "Bah" by Otis). Otis has a habit of reaching behind himself at his rear end, and pulling out the back of his pants from his buttocks. Because of his immense stomach, old age, and geeky appearance, Otis seems like a weak old man who just tries to make everyone think he's capable of taking them out. Because of this, he's often challenged in some way, usually to physical fights which he is more than willing to get involved in. Surprisingly enough, through his loony wrestling style, he's always successful and easily beats up his competition.
  • Jerome: a loudmouthed, flashy Detroit pimp. Jerome makes big entrances, often loudly singing variations of his own theme-song "Jerome in the house! I say Jerome in the house! Watch ya' mooooooouuuth", upon arrival. He runs a casino, wears a family gold tooth, often parties, and regularly hits on Pam. His nicknames for Pam are "Junk in the Trunk" (or just "Junk" for short) and "Bad Pamma Jamma". His nicknames for Gina are "Hi-Yellow" and "Red Bone" or just "red" for short.
  • Roscoe: a 10-year-old kid with a consistently runny nose and a smart mouth. Lawrence played the role by standing still on his knees, and attaching shoes to his kneecaps.
  • Dragonfly Jones: A martial arts "expert", who was beaten up in nearly every appearance. He always seemed to owe money to a real martial artist, who was actually a student of his named Kenji, who would then beat him up. He also warmed up for a long period of time.
  • Bob: A white man who works in the marketing department of Gina's company who is best described as a stereotypical "surfer dude". He speaks in a Southern Californian accent mixed with a Texas twang and often uses words like "dude" and "man" even in professional settings. Lawrence achieves his appearance as this character with stage make-up and a prosthetic nose attachment to make him appear White, as well as wearing a long blonde wig to complete the look.
  • Elroy Preston: The fictional "Godfather of Black Surf Music" who is now basically forgotten and washed up. Preston now works as an auto mechanic, and is best known for randomly breaking into song while performing his mechanical duties. This character often distracts himself and irritates others when reminiscing on things that involve his trademark song. The song consists of Preston singing "Don't you know no good!" over and over.

These characters were generally very popular with audiences, although Sheneneh was the most famous. Lawrence would later dress as alter-egos in his feature films, notably Big Momma's House and its sequel, Big Momma's House 2. However, Lawrence's role in the movies is a man disguised as an elderly woman in contrast to the Momma Payne role, which is intended to be an actual elderly woman. The Martin Payne character very rarely shared screen time with Lawrence's costumed alter-egos. Periodically, however, split-screen filming techniques allowed Martin and Sheneneh or Martin and Otis to appear onscreen together.

There were also other recurring characters, such as Brother Man (pronounced "Bruh Man", played by comedian Reginald Ballard). Bruh Man lived on the fifth floor, directly above Martin, and often climbed down the "f-a-a-a-ah 'scape" to break into Martin's apartment, taking food, borrowing assorted items and generally lounging around as if he lived there. One memorable quote was in an episode where Martin had recurring dreams about Pam. Martin wakes up around 3 0'Clock and walks into his living room to find Bruh Man making a sandwich. After some words Bruh man says "What you doin up. I usually have the place to myself round' this hour." Another notable character was Ms. Geri (played by Jeri Gray), a tough trigger-happy senior who, regardless of her age and diminutive size, had no qualms about "whooping ass." Most of her physical confrontations were with Martin in mundane, everyday situations, such as standing in line at the DMV or at the unemployment office. Hustle Man (played by comedian Tracy Morgan), always came around to sell whatever crazy items he had from the 'hood, always greeting with his trademark "What's happenin', chief?" There was also Nipsey (played by Sean Lampkin), the rotund, good-natured bartender who owned Nipsey's Club, the group's favorite hangout. Reginald Ballard Reginald Ballard is an African-American character actor and comedian who is probably best known as Brotherman from the fifth flo in the sitcom Martin. ...

In Seasons 1-2, Martin had a co-worker at the radio station named Shawn, played by Jon Gries. Martin always found himself having rather strange conversations with Shawn. Shawn usually did things that upset Stan and once even tried to get a record deal from Snoop Dogg. Shawn was later fired, along with Martin, when Stan sold the radio station. Stan, played by Garrett Morris, was Martin's and Shawn's boss and the owner of WZUP radio station. He always had on bad cologne and outdated clothing from the 1970s. Martin knew Stan to be cheap and somewhat untrustworthy, and just when Martin didn't think Stan could sink any lower with his schemes, Stan always surprised him. Furthermore, Stan got into trouble with the IRS due to unpaid taxes, so he sold the station and fled. He came back later on to start a partnership with Martin to help him open a restaurant Marty Mart's Meatloaf and Waffles. Their venture together wasn't successful. Stan left and was never mentioned again on the series. Jon Gries (born June 17, 1957 in Glendale, California) is an American actor, writer and director. ... Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. ... Garrett Morris (born February 1, 1937) is an American comedian and actor from New Orleans, Louisiana. ...


Cancellation

Fox canceled Martin during the last two seasons of the show when Lawrence began abusing drugs, the effects of which affected his performance on the show. As a result, Lawrence suffered numerous psychological effects. Campbell sued Lawrence for sexual harassment, alleging that Lawrence acted inappropriately while he and Campbell taped scenes of Martin and Gina sharing a bed. Sexual harassment is harassment or unwelcome attention of a sexual nature. ...


The episode in which the alleged harassment took place was "Back in Trouble Again"[4] (Season 5, Episode 2). It was the last bed scene between Campbell and Lawrence. During the end of the episode, there was a gag reel of outtakes of the two under the covers and they both seem to be joking around. This supports some of the doubts of the allegations.


Other allegations were that Lawrence threatened the cast with a firearm. Campbell also alleged that Lawrence would have outbursts during tapings. Campbell claimed that she feared for her life and that she began to install locks on her dressing room. She also claims she had spoken with the shows producers about installing an 'eject' button in her dressing room. None of the other cast members have made claims about how their work environment was.[citation needed]


Campbell's appearances in the show dwindled, often sharing screen-time only with co-star, Tichina Arnold, or in a split-screen with Martin, or not at all. She did not (and would not) appear in any scenes with Lawrence, save for a split-screen scene taped on separate sets. Campbell's disappearance from the show caused Martin to "jump the shark"[5] in the eyes of many viewers: the show's ratings and popularity dropped. Despite Lawrence's problems, FOX showed interest in bringing back the show for a sixth season but Lawrence skipped out on a meeting to discuss (reported in the Hollywood blurb on the Atlanta-Journal Constitution in 1997.) As result, Living Single was brought back as a mid-season replacement. Meanwhile, FOX waited until things settled between Lawrence and Campbell. Lawrence even had suggested who would take over the role of Gina. Lawrence then made the decision to end the show and FOX agreed.[citation needed] To this day, Lawrence and Campbell are still personally feuding, although Campbell stated in a radio interview that she is still very grateful to Lawrence for giving her an opportunity to be a part of his show.[citation needed] The infamous moment when Fonzie jumps over a shark while on water skis. ...
