Martin Lawrence Height

"I don't want to sound facetious, but humor is the key to the soul. You know what I mean?"

~ Martin Lawrence

Famous comedian and actor, Martin Lawrence is known for his work in movies like House Party, Boomerang, Wild Hogs, Nothing to Lose, Blue Streak, Life, and of course, the Bad Boys film series.

In the movie Blue Streak, Martin's drivers' license listed his height as 5-feet-9 inches.

But there is no way that Martin would touch the 5'9" mark in real life -- perhaps in some good cowboy boots -- but not otherwise.

A 6-feet-2 inches tall Will Smith towers over him like no 5'9" tall man should be towered over. Even people with average height (and slightly below that) like Johnny Depp (5'9") and Tom Cruise (5'8") look way taller than Mr. Lawrence.

After a few more such height comparisons, we think 5'7" may be the best number to describe the height of someone like Martin Lawrence.

The real height of Martin Lawrence is

5'7" or 170 cm
