Lawrence's last effort at TV came in 2014, the short-lived FX comedy "Partners" in which he co-starred with Kelsey Grammer. It lasted only a season.

He began touring as a stand-up comic again around 2015 after a long break. coming to the Fox Theatre.

At the time I interviewed him, he said he was calm and happy many years after both physical and mental health issues impacted his career. ” I am in a very positive place,” he said. “I’ve grown up a lot. I’ve seen a lot. I’ve been through a lot."
