Who is Katt Williams


Who is Katt Micah Williams, the world knows him has Katt Williams & "Money Mike from Friday After Next. Williams is a Multi-talented actor/comedian. He was born 2 September 1973, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was raised in Dayton, Ohio. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California, where he is simultaneously working on several projects on camera and behind the scenes for your viewing pleasure in the near future. Throughout his journey he has used his comedy as a tool to travel the country and has accumulated a massive fan base in the process.

Katt has 8 children, 7 of which are adopted.[3] As a child, Williams rejected a scholarship to The National Science Academy,[4] choosing instead to emulate his idols such as Don Knotts, Bill Cosby, Darnell Allen, Walt New, Richard Pryor and George Carlin by becoming a comedian.
Williams started being a stand up comedian most notably appearing on BET Comic View. His jokes and punchlines instantly made the show a favorite. He has also played supporting characters in movies such as First Sunday, Norbit, and probably more widely recognized for his character in the movie Friday After Next as "Money Mike". He has also provided numerous skits and video appearances for artists such as The Game, Ludacris, T.I., E-40, Outkast, Lil’ Kim, Lyfe Jennings, Nick Cannon, DJ Drama, Lil' Scrappy, Lil Jon, and others. He was a cast member on Wild 'n Out for several seasons. He also voices "A Pimp Named Slickback" on the Adult Swim's "The Boondocks".
In 2006, Williams starred on his own new stand-up HBO show, The Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1.
In 2008, Williams made news when he handed out $100 bills to audience members at one of his standup performances in Los Angeles' famed Laugh Factory comedy club.
Both Williams and his friend Walter O make cameo appearances in the 'Split Sides Comedy Club' in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV as themselves.
Williams was married and later divorced from Quadirah Locus. Williams has custody of their child Micah, as well as seven adopted children. He often mentions his children and adoption in his act. As a guest on The Tonight Show in February 2007, he spoke about the importance of adopting from foster care, stating "he got his kids right here, he didn’t have to go to Africa to do it. Amazingly enough, there are needy kids right down the street." He has recently been in Ludacris' "One more Drank" music video.

On Friday, November 14, 2008, Katt was admitted to Tuomey Regional Medical Center in Sumter, South Carolina for a psychiatric evaluation after a string of incidents involving erratic behavior.[5]

On Wednesday, November 5, 2008, the day after the US presidential election, he failed to appear as a scheduled guest on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien. This was the first time this had happened on the show since its debut in 1993. This absence lead to speculation that Williams was dead.[7]

During the early morning of Thursday, November 6, 2008, an hour after Williams failed to appear on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Williams was arrested on weapons charges in midtown Manhattan after police say they pulled him over for driving a car without license plates.[8] He was released on bail later that day in time for his show at Carnegie Hall.[8]

The following day, at William's appearance at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ , on Nov. 7, Katt announced that he will make his final stand up performance on December 31, 2008, citing wear and tear on the road, the need to keep his family together, and a desire to help young up-and-coming comedy acts get their start.


In a statement to the press, William's publicist, Yvette Shearer, cited a hectic tour schedule is causing William's "incredible" fatigue, and said that he has sought medical care.
