Carl Payne Tears Up When Sharing Final Moments With Martin Co-Star Tommy Ford

It’s been close to 3 years since we lost actor Tommy Ford who was widely known for his role of Tommy on ‘Martin’. Several night ago, Comedy Hype stopped by Ford’s co-star Carl Payne’s comedy show in Atlanta to find out his latest and touch on the classic series. Payne who is approaching his 50th birthday this May, would open up about getting the call that his co-star was ill and revealed that he was at the hospital during Ford’s final moments.

“I got a call from Tichina … I went straight to the hospital ….”, Payne would tell our cameras. In recent years audiences of ‘Martin’ have been learning more about Payne thanks to his journey in stand-up comedy which includes parts of his life on the iconic series. Be sure to head over to CH’s YouTube as we roll out more of our talk with Payne.
