Tisha Campbell-Martin finally lets the world know what Tommy's job was on 'Martin'
Martin blessed the 90's with gut busting comedy and iconic characters over the course of five seasons. After the show ended in 1997, we were left with one of TV's greatest mysteries. What the hell did Martin's best friend, Tommy Strawn do for a living?
You remember the running joke.
Tommy insisted he was gainfully employed.
Martin believed otherwise.
And so did we..until today.In an episode of the Don’t Be Scared podcast, Tisha Campbell Martin says the audience knew Tommy's occupation in season one
"But Tommy did really have a job.. I’ll give you a hint. Mrs., always forget her name, the woman I was going to fight, she was Martin’s teacher, Mrs., not Cunningham… okay, but you know who I’m talking about. Beverly Johnson played her. So, it’s in that episode, that’s the first time you hear about Tommy’s job. The second time you see Tommy’s job is in the Christmas episode when he brings us to speak to children and Martin calls the little boy waterhead
