Chris Tucker With Martin Lawrence
One fan argued in favor of Lawrence: “Martin. Not even a contest. Martin was way bigger than Chris was. The man had his own show. He also blew up before Chris so his head start helped. Love both of them though. These were some my favs growing up.” Another user agreed with them while adding, “I own every season of Martin, and have seen every episode who knows how many times and it’s just as funny as it was when I was a kid. Chris is hella funny but stuck to a specific role. I could say the same for Martin but it just seemed more obvious with Chris.”
Others defended Tucker. “I love Martin but DO NOT EVER compare him to the most NATURALLY TALENTED COMEDIAN. Chris Tucker just different fr,” one wrote. Another fan argued, “Chris Tucker could do Big Mama’s House but Martin Lawrence couldn’t do Fifth Element.”
