Over the years, Martin Lawrence hasn't squandered away his wealth. The extremely successful stand-up comedian, sitcom star, and film lead may not be as worth as much as his Bad Boys co-star Will Smith, but he’s quite well-off.

Since first appearing on the big screen in Spike Lee's seminal 1989 film Do The Right Thing, cult classic House Party in 1990, and the television screen on Martin from 1992 to 1997, the performer has racked up hit after hit. Once you look at his body of work, it isn't a surprise that Martin's reported net worth is in the nine figures.

What is Martin Lawrence's net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Martin's net worth is $110 million. It may seem high, but when you’ve had a sitcom in syndication for over 30 years and co-starred in some of the biggest action and comedy franchises of the last 29 years, it’s not very surprising.

In addition to the aforementioned Fox sitcom and Bad Boys franchise, Martin has also starred in Big Momma’s House, Big Momma’s House 2, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (people sure do like Martin in a fat suit), Blue Streak, Black Knight, National Security, Wild Hogs, and dozens more films.

Martin Lawrence doesn’t appear in films that often, but it’s a big deal when he does.

While Martin was seemingly everywhere in the '90s, starting in big budget movies, leading a TV show for 5 years, and hosting SNL, he has been pickier over the last decade.

Since 2015 Martin has only appeared in three films and no television programs. But since one of those films was 2020’s Bad Boy for Life, you may be forgiven if you thought he was still everywhere. The third installment in the franchise grossed over $400 million and was one of the last big movies before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. It was the highest-grossing film of January 2020.

Will and Martin are returning and reprising their beloved characters of Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett for Bad Boys: Ride or Die. The recently released trailer looks like it should reap another few hundred million at the box office, which should help pad Martin’s $110 million worth by a few more million.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die will be in theaters on June 7, 2024.
