The new dates are in: Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 12; Augusta, Ga., Oct. 22; and Albany, N.Y., Nov. 17. Those shows fall between bookend dates on Oct. 7 in Las Vegas and Mashantucket, Conn., Nov. 18.

Martin has already been running around the country this year and is set to release material from his recent set in a TV special, titled “Doin’ Time: Uncut,” to air Sept. 9 on Showtime.

Rising to prominence as the host of “Def Comedy Jam,” and the star of the popular sitcom “Martin” in the ’90s, Lawrence became a household name, acting in films like “Bad Boys” and “Big Mama’s House.”

Lawrence hasn’t been in a major motion picture since 2011’s Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, but he starred in the 2014 TV series “Partners.” The comedian has a number of projects in the pipeline, like a third “Bad Boys” feature with Will Smith and a sequel to “A Thin Line Between Love and Hate” with Lynn Whitfield.

In addition to the TV special and films Lawrence has an app called Runteldat, which will gives fans to access livestreams of his shows, exclusive videos and even personal messages from the artist.

Oct. 7 – Las Vegas, Nev., The Chelsea At The Cosmopolitan
Oct. 21 – Jacksonville, Fla., Times-Union Center For Perf. Arts
Oct. 22 – Augusta, Ga., James Brown Arena
Nov. 17 – Albany, N.Y., Times Union Center

An American Express presale is already on and tickets to the new shows go on sale to the general public Aug. 26. Check out Lawrence’s Facebook and Twitter pages for more on the laugh-master himself.
