Biography

Multi-talented performer Tisha Campbell-Martin gained notoriety as the calming influence and romantic interest of not one, but two comedic talents, on the hit sitcoms "Martin" (Fox, 1992-97) and "My Wife & Kids" (ABC, 2001-05). Gaining early experience on stage and in films like "Little Shop of Horrors" (1986) and "School Daze" (1988), she later picked up a recurring role in the teen comedy "House Party" (1990) and its subsequent sequels. While enjoying her success on the second season of "Martin," Campbell-Martin released her self-titled debut album which spawned the Top 40 dance single "Push" in 1993. Although she parted ways with "Martin" co-star Martin Lawrence under less than ideal circumstances, the actress found being on the set of "My Wife & Kids" alongside Damon Wayans far more rewarding. Martin-Campbell continued to appear regularly in film and on television in such diverse projects as the raunchy romantic comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" (2008) and the motivational kids' TV-movie "Lemonade Mouth" (Disney Channel, 2011), proving both her versatility and durability as an actress.
