Today I was in Best Buy and discovered that Martin (Martin Lawrence's 90's sitcom) was released on DVD this month. I picked up the first season. I almost forgot just how funny this show was. I personally believe that it was the funniest sitcom to ever hit television.
I challenge anyone to come up with a funnier show. Towards the end, it got a little stale, but he had a good three or four year run of pure comedic genius. The above clip is one that highlights one of my favorite characters that Martin played on the show.
Dragonfly Jones was a cocky, degenerate "Kung Fu Master" that traveled around the city to teach Karate to people along with his underpaid, "inferior" assistant. The best part was that he always owed his assistant money and would never pay. In return the assistant would kick his ass during demonstrations.
His trademark was trying to intimidate his opponents by doing random, obscure shit since he really didn't know how to fight.
Peep the clip...
