Martin was one of the classic television shows from the 90's. All the characters were unique and the plot of the show was sharp. The actors poured their hearts into their roles and really sold their parts. One of the standouts from the show was Martin's best friend Tommy. He always dressed nice and had a great personality, but Tommy had one flaw: No one knew if he had a job. I mean it's one thing to be 21 without a full time gig, but to be a grown man flaunting around town like you got it, but NO ONE knows where you work? The cast wasn't having that. Tommy always swore he had a job, but when asked to verify, things always went to the wayside. As a result the running joke on the show was "You ain't got no damn job Tommy!" Well news has broke that it was all a well hid joke, as Tommy did in fact have a job on the show.
Yes, contrary to popular belief, Tommy does indeed have a job. The answer comes in the middle of the latest episode of the Dont Be Scared podcast while Campbell-Martin is talking about the age old debate regarding Martins greatest episode: Suspicious Minds or The Romantic Weekend, also known as Chilligans Island or The CD Player episode: Ill give you a hint. Mrs., the woman I was going to fight, she was Martins teacher, Mrs., not Cunningham… okay, but you know who Im talking about. Beverly Johnson played her. So, its in that episode, thats the first time you hear about Tommys job. The second time you see Tommys job is in the Christmas episode when he brings us to speak to children and Martin calls the little boy waterhead. So, Tommy talks about, him being in the Boys and Girls Club and he was a counselor at the Boys and Girls Club. Thats what he Tommy for a living. So there you have it, Tommy was a counselor at the Boys and Girls club. He did have a job!
@easternshell I saw that too, I missed it as well. They through it in there so light that you could've skimmed over it
@alywoah I mean, of all the jobs for him to have, a counselor at the Boys and Girls club? Def caught me off guard lol
@javonlowery finally.. Lol. This was one of the best running jokes on the show, but I'm happy they finally let Tommy save face on this one
I saw those episodes and somehow missed that.
