Two decades have gone by and the age old question, “what is Tommy’s job?” on Martin has gone unanswered. As of yesterday, thanks to Tisha Campbell-Martin, we finally have an answer.
It comes in the middle of the latest episode of the Don’t Be Scared podcast while Campbell-Martin is talking about the popular debate regarding Martin’s greatest episode: “Suspicious Minds” or “The Romantic Weekend,” also known as “Chilligan’s Island” or “The CD Player” episode.
“I’ll give you a hint. Mrs., 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.
So, Tommy talks about, him being in the Boys and Girls Club and he was a counselor at the Boys and Girls Club. That’s what he Tommy for a living.”
Boys and Girls Club? Did not see that one coming.
