After a decade and a half we finally have a third entry in buddy cop action series Bad Boys with the recently released Bad guys for Life. Now ns not here to talk around the movie (I ain’t watched it yet but I arrangement to) yet rather one of its stars boy name Lawrence.

You are watching: All the characters martin played on his show

We haven’t viewed a significant role from Lawrence in a while (let’s simply pretend those Big Momma sequels never happened) so it’s cool to watch him earlier in the limelight. And seeing that again reminded me what that is most renowned for outside of the action franchise and hosting Def Comedy Jam – his eponymous sitcom series that ran from 1992-1997. In the series he not only played the titular boy name Payne but a slew of various other comedic characters. And also for this list we will certainly be counting down eight the his ideal characters, as well as two various other supporting characters. Below we go:

#10 Elroy Preston

If girlfriend don’t understand the King of black color Surf Music climate you don’t understand no good. Don’t you recognize no good? Elroy only had the one song but that wouldn’t protect against him from to sing it over and also over and also over again.

#9 Bob (from marketing)

Bob simply wanted to find a rad party, talk his frat boy lingo and show turn off his white-boy dance moves. For this reason when next you’re having a shindig you need to think “What about Bob?”

#8 Edna (Mama) Payne

When Mama Payne wasn’t gossiping through her girlfriend she to be haranguing Gina (Tisha Campbell-Martin) because that being a “modern woman” that don’t know nothing about taking treatment of she baby. And her ideal scenes were with her throwing the shade at Martin’s wife.

#7 Hustle Man

We’ve all met a “Hustle Man” in ~ some suggest in our lives. He’s the type of male who would pick flowers from your yard and also then shot to market you them for Valentine’s Day. Played by future comedy star Tracy Morgan, that was constantly fun to watch what hare-brained sales key Hustle male would come up v next.

#6 Roscoe

If you had a child favor Roscoe you would certainly seriously consider putting that up for adoption. He is rude, mirrors up out of nowhere, typically threatens come beat increase Gina and he runs miscellaneous schemes favor a mini-Hustle Man. One time the turned Gina’s apartment right into a kiddie casino. Snatty-nose small bastard.

#5 Bruh-Man 

Not to be perplexed with Hustle Man, Bruh male (Reginald Ballard) is the worst kind of neighbour. Imagine waking up at 3 am and also there is a male in her kitchen eating a “samwich.” Or girlfriend come home beforehand from work and also he is over there watching her TV. It is Bruh-Man. And also what is the doing? Nuthen, just chillin’.

#4 Sheneneh Jenkins

While this outspoken shop owner might be the finest known that the martin characters, I would argue the she is not the funniest. Sure it is good to clock Sheneneh profession taunts v Gina and Pam (Tichina Arnold) but her ghetto girl shtick feels very dated now. The still an excellent for a couple laughs though.

#3 Dragonfly Jones

Karate “master” Dragonfly Jones may be among Martin’s easier characters however he was amongst the many amusing. His overconfidence and complete absence of martial arts skills were a hilarious combination, and also a wonderful means for Lawrence to display screen his physical comedy skills. Tho don’t think me? Si-lence! Si-lence!

#2 Jerome

There’s a guy from mine church named Jerome and every time I check out him ns think “Jerome’s in da house! ns say Jerome’s in da house!” This wannabe pimp (Jerome indigenous Martin, not Jerome from my church) looks prefer something the 70s threw up. If Dragonfly Jones was persuaded he to be a karate master, Jerome was persuaded that he to be God’s gift to women. Spoiler alarm – he was not. Ns remember he once told a woman in a club “You’re name’s gotta it is in jelly because jam don’t shake choose that.” standard Jerome.

#1 Old Otis

While revisiting these personalities no one made me laugh an ext than Old Otis. This overweight, cantankerous and also violent defense guard to be a genuine hoot. If he offered you an order you much better follow that or young he will whoop your a$$. One time 2 gangsters were holding Gina and Pam hostage and they underestimate Old Otis. They acquired whoop so poor their grandchildren feeling it. Nothing nobody mess with Old Otis.

So who’s her favourite boy name character? and also if you took pleasure in this trip down memory lane how around a share? sharing is caring.
