Seventeen years ago today, Martin Lawrence
’s stand-up comedy film, You So Crazy
, debuted in theaters nationwide. If you were over 18 or could at least sneak into a movie theater in 1994, you saw Lawrence’s You So Crazy
. He was already a phenomenon, but his raunchy stand-up caught on celluloid made him into a Richard Pryor
or Eddie Murphy
of the mid 90’s. Rocking an all-leather suit, channeling Eddie Murphy’s attire from his stand-up days, Lawrence delivered some classic material.
Filmed at the Majestic Theatre in New York City, Martin tackled everything from relationships to sex to racism. Directed by Thomas Schlamme
, Spin City
), You So Crazy
grossed over 10 million at the box office and gave us some legendary quotes like, “Your job is to check coats -- check ‘em b**ch!” "Craa-azy, dee-raaanged."
