Katt Williams, the well known stand up comedian and actor is stopping in Dallas on his most recent tour, Katt is Back which is his coming out tour since the retirement announcement back in 2012. This announcement comes as a follow up to his recent release of his 9 Lives DVD, which was released only a few days ago. Also in the news recently for Katt were the TMZ reports of his arrest on bogus charges of theft, which have not stopped the comedian from performing on tour.
Known to most for his breakout role in three seasons of Nick Cannon’s highly-rated MTV improv show, "Wild n’ Out." Katt has appeared in a variety of music videos including Outkast ("Roses"), Ludacris ("Stand Up" & "Number One Spot"), E-40 ("One Night Stand") and Lil’ Kim ("Shut Up/Lighter’s Up"). Mr. Williams has been on TV, which some might recognize him from his roles on TV shows like ‘NYPD Blue’, ‘My Wife and Kids,’ and Russell Simmon’s HBO 'Def Comedy Jam'. He was also made into a cartoon just like Dave Chappelle and Mike Epps, with his animated character (A Pimp Named Slickback) on the popular adult cartoon “The Boondocks.”
Katt has been praised by multiple magazines like Rolling Stone for his comedy, and was even backed by the awesome Steve Harvey who was quoted saying "He’s one of the hottest comedians in the country." Some of his more recent roles include his character in the Eddie Murphy film 'Norbert'.
