THE Funniest Show Ever!
14 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think Martin Lawrence is the funniest man in America. I loved this show. Every time he cracked on Pam, I cracked up, and vice versa. I think Bra Man is hilarious! Every character Martin plays I love. I love Dragonfly Jones, Rosco, and Jerome he's my favorite. I think this show is GREAT!
