Martin Reunion First Look Trailer

Martin reunion

BET+ debuted the first look trailer for its highly-anticipated Martin reunion. Three decades later, the cast is reuniting for a special episode dropping on June 16.

Participating stars include Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold, and Carl Anthony Payne II.

The trailer opens with a dedication to Thomas Mikal Ford, who played Tommy in the series. The actor sadly passed away in 2016 from an operation complication. He was 52.

Hosted by comedian Affion Crockett, the special will focus on the show’s origin and evolution. In addition, it will feature interviews with the surviving cast, original directors, special musical performances, and behind-the-scenes must-sees.

Martin, which premiered in 1992, starred Lawrence – who played various characters, Campbell as Martin’s girlfriend and later his wife, Gina; Arnold as Gina’s best friend, Pam; and Martin’s two best friends, Cole (Payne) and Tommy (played by the late Thomas Ford). The series concluded with season five due to the tensions between the two main cast members. People reported that Campbell sued Lawrence for “repeated and escalating sexual harassment, sexual battery, verbal abuse, and related threats” in 1997. The two later reconciled, with Campbell announcing in 2020 that she was “so glad that we’re in a good place right now.”

Dave Chappelle to Donate All Proceeds From Buffalo Show To Mass Shooting Victims & Families

Dave Chappelle

On Sunday, Dave Chappelle booked a last-minute gig at the 3,000-plus-seat Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. The sold-out show honored the community still recovering from last month’s horrific mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket.

The comedian announced some of the victims’ families were seated in the audience. He also mentioned that all proceeds from that night would go to them.

On May 14, an 18-year-old white male entered Tops Supermarket, located in a predominately Black neighborhood, and killed ten residents aged between 32 and 86. The suspect was arrested and charged with domestic terrorism motivated by hate and ten counts of first-degree murder.

A little over a week before Buffalo, Chappelle himself became a victim of an attack. The 48-year-old was assaulted while onstage at the Hollywood Bowl. A knife-yielding man, later ID’d as Isaiah Lee, stormed the stage just as the show was ending and tackled the comedian.

Although the motive behind the attack is still not confirmed, some users online are convinced it had something to do with Chapelle’s latest controversial Netflix special. Lee was arrested and pled not guilty and was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Chapelle.
