Known just as much for his permed hair as he is for his animated performances and quick wit, comedian Katt Williams has been making his mark in Hollywood for over 10 years. Beginning his career at an age when most teenagers are seeking their driver’s licenses, the young comic quickly discovered that he had a gift for making people laugh. Inspired by the likes of great humorists such as Richard Pryor Don Knotts, Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby, George Carlin, Jeff Foxworthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Dave Chappelle, Williams has built a unique and hilarious style all his own.
In 1999, Williams became a presence at Los Angeles comedy clubs and had his own room at The Hollywood Park Casino where he had a large, loyal following. He became a comedic force on the BET Network, appearing on shows such as Comic View, Rip the Runway, Black Carpet, Rap City, 106 & Park, the BET Awards and the BET Comedy Awards. Throughout his success he has been massively embraced by the hip hop community, receiving praise from everyone from Master P to Snoop Dogg as well as African American comedic icons such as Steve Harvey.
Widely recognized for his role as “Money Mike” in the hit New Line movie Friday After Next and for his role in Nick Cannon’s highly-rated MTV improv show, “Wild n’ Out,” Williams has appeared in music videos for everyone from Outkast (“Roses”) and Ludacris (“Stand Up” & “Number One Spot”) to E-40 (“One Night Stand”) and Lil’ Kim (“Shut Up/Lighter’s Up”), in addition to landing roles on the small and big screen. Some of his appearances include “NYPD Blue”, UPN’s “Girlfriends” and “Cuts”, “The Tracy Morgan Show”, “Wanted”, “My Wife and Kids”, Russell Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam” on HBO alongside Dave Chappelle and Mike Epps, and as an animated character (“A Pimp Named Slickback”) on the popular adult cartoon “The Boondocks”. Williams continues to receive stamps of approval from the urban and mainstream community for his brilliance and ingenuity on screen and on stage.
In August 2012, Showtime aired “Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse” which was taped New Year’s Eve 2012 in front of 7,000 fans at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. His performance brings his trademark explosive energy to riffs covering everything from Obama to Doomsday. Williams’ comedy brings the house down with laughter by drawing on his own experiences and his edgy take on life with his unique personality, pimp-esque charisma and endless supply of original jokes.
