Martin Lawrence starts out this CD by saying that his boxing trainer used to tell people, "One thing about Martin--he won't get hit...and he won't hit anybody either." The same goes for his comedy. Lawrence opts to bob and weave, never really clobbering anything. This makes for a pleasant but hardly sidesplitting first effort. Still, Talkin' Shit has its moments, as when Lawrence mimics an outraged Joe Jackson: "That's bullshit.... I never hit those kids. I hit Michael maybe once, when he didn't give Tito the syrup." The only downside to the CD--besides Lawrence's reflexive profanity, which gets as grating as a stutter by the end--is that you might know a little more about the comic's weenie than you would like. Be warned. --Michael Gerber

"For anyone accustomed to the relatively tame Martin seen on his T.V. series, be forewarned, this isn't the same Martin. He's better. From the intro, to the closing "Fartin'& Sh..in'" routine, he lets loose with a barrage of cuss-filled jokes. Best moment on the CD: when Martin is heckled by an audience member during a joke, and proceeds to lay waste to the guy with lip-smacking relish ('now, that WILL be on the album motherf...er'!) without missing a beat. I deducted one star because Mr. Lawrence recycles a lot of material from his film "You So Crazy", but his delivery and momentum are a lot better here. If you're offended by profanity or jokes involving bodily functions (his bit about 'sh-t crumbs' in bed is not for the squeamish, but is VERY FUNNY) then bypass this CD, but for fans of ribald, fearless comedy by a man in peak form, pick it up immediately. A Classic."

"This CD was one of Martin Lawrence's best ever! He has always been one of my favorite comics, however, I would much rather have seen this on Video or DVD just to see his reactions and facial expressions. If that were the case, I'm sure it would've been even more hilarious. Overall, I highly recommend this CD, especially to those who have the time to focus their listening entirely on it (i.e. while sitting in traffic like me). LOL!!!"
