At least he’s consistent.
Katt Williams is moving along swiftly in his attempt to irritate and confuse as many of his fans as possible. Williams was billed to appear at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre Thursday (Nov. 29), the first of a two-night engagement.
He decided to skip the gig instead.
In his absence, several openings acts, including comedian John Whitherspoon, performed for the anxious crowd. The show’s MC claimed that Williams was in the building, only to re-announce, more than three hours later, that he had been pulled over by police on his way to the venue. Other reports allege that Williams was in fact at the location but was too high to perform.
Fans from night one have been offered refunds.
In a small show of redemption the comedian made it to night two Friday (Nov. 30), but was unable to finish his jokes, changed clothes on stage, and hit a fan in the head with a mic. Nonetheless, he was amusing. “Katt Williams just showed up on stage and lit sumin. Now he’s hidden and all you can see is his feet. At least he’s here LOL,” tweeted someone from the show.
As he makes his way around the country, Williams has gone through an almost nightly headline-grabbing event which usually commences with him in cuffs.
In addition to his mounting reputation for erratic behavior, he is also facing several suits, the most recent of which is a class action lawsuit filed after his show in Oakland, Calif., ended in 10 minutes. He also led police on a pursuit as he rode a 3-wheeler in Sacramento a couple of weeks ago, and slapped a Target employee.
His comedy tour is scheduled to hit the likes of Houston, Alabama, and New Orleans in the coming week.
