Martin Lawrence hasn't had a stand-up special since 2002's Runteldat, but that's about to change: On September 9, Showtime will air the comedian's third special, Martin Lawrence Doin' Time: Uncut, the premium-cable network announced today. Filmed at Los Angeles' Orpheum Theatre, the special will reportedly feature Lawrence's jokes about "sex and relationships ... President Obama, Bill Cosby, Hollywood, and more." Sounds good, but it's not a real Martin Lawrence stand-up special unless he wears an amazing leather shirt.
