How To Throw A Wild B-Day Party, As Illustrated By GIFs Of Martin, Sheneneh And Big Momma


Happy Birthday, Martin Lawrence!

Martin Lawrence is one of the most beloved comedians of all time, and his classic sitcom, "Martin," has been an MTV2 "Block Party" staple for quite awhile. The guy's practically family! So, when we heard today was his 48th birthday, we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than by posting some fan-made GIFs featuring scenes from your favorite episodes (and a special appearance from "Big Momma"!). Take a look at the inspired artwork, and feel free to use our accompanying party tips to ensure any b-day bash you throw will be one for the record long as Sheneneh doesn't crash.

First, make sure your fashion game is on point! When you look good, you feel good. 

Serve some good grub. The way to everyone's hearts is through their stomachs!

Get your dancin' shoes on and break out your most dope moves.

Invite some eye candy for optimum people watching.

Keep all s**t-starters off the guest list. Ain't nobody got time for that!

And if they happen to crash...

.... show them the door....

....and get right back to dancing.

Don't miss reruns of "Martin," starting tomorrow night at 11/10c on MTV2!
