The fifth season of Martin Lawrence Presents: The 1 st Amendment Stand-Up series is being filmed this week at the Chicago Theatre. Last night, the first two sets included favorites like Sandra Bernhard, Jimmy "JJ" Walker (Good Times, Everybody Hates Chris), Gary Owen (House of Payne), Pierre, and local comedian turned radio personality, Leon Rogers. The lineup represented many demographics, and tackled topics like immigration, gay rights, Maury Povich, the Obamas, infidelity, and of course sex.

Host Sheryl Underwood, a veteran herself, reminisced with the audience about her old hang out spots in Chicago. Sheryl is a South-Side native, so she was especially proud to be back amongst friends and family. When asked why Chicago was his favorite city to perform in, comedian Pierre commented, " Chicago is real. People here just get it."
