Martin Lawrence Lit AF Tour Meet & Greet in NYC

Post by WOODMO » April 21st, 2018, 8:50 pm

Last night Martin Lawrence and his comedy tour came to town, with the big news for me being that this event featured a meet and greet.

Now I've been a fan of Martin's since I was like 12 years old, watching his sitcom, his movies, and then later on his stand up. I honestly must have seen Big Momma's House at least 10 times as a kid. He isn't easy on the street and frankly not a ton of people even have the guy, so I instantly ponied up the $400 for the ticket. I arrived in Brooklyn and found a NYC photo friend on line waiting to get in, and coincidentally we bought tickets right next to one another.

Once inside I went to the check in table where they gave me the signed poster, though I got two, so one is for sale. I also got briefed on how the meet and greet would go.

My seat was second row, dead center. Now normally I would just leave before the show, but the meet and greet was actually post show, so I had no choice. The show was entertaining enough though. Martin didn't have a real set, as I expected since they clearly called his role "hosting", but he did a brief bit between introducing each act. I was fine with that and it was cool seeing him live.

Once the show was over they instructed us to wait in our seats until we were taken backstage. After about 15 mins we were ushered into an Interview Room in the bowels of the Barclays Center and Martin entered not too long after with a hoard of bodyguards. The rules were no phones were to be out and the photographer would take 3 photos in a row, with flash, and then upload the best one later that night. Martin was friendly and greeted everyone. The photo, true to their word was posted before I got home even. Resolution was 6000x4000 and it was nearly 7mb.

Great time meeting someone I really never expected to get.
