I Quit: Katt Williams Announces His Retirement From Stand-Up Comedy
This past Monday, we reported on the most recent series of outlandish occurrences that resulted in comedian Katt Williams finding himself in police custody. Many wondered if Katt realized that his life was spiraling out of control and that he needed help. Today it seems as if he may. Following his recent ejection out of a Seattle hotel, KOMO news caught up with Katt to discuss the trouble he found himself over the weekend after arguing with a restaurant owner and harassing the business’s patrons.
In the interview Katt revealed that he will be retiring from stand up comedy and that although he wished to announce his retirement in a more formal manner, he couldn’t take it anymore.
“I’m just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from stand up. I’m kind of done… I’ve already discussed it with my kids. I wasn’t really gonna do it on a Settle street. I was gonna go to Los Angeles and do it in the offices of of ICM or Live Nation.”
According to the SF Gate, he also joked about suing Settle for “crippling his reputation”
“I can stay (on the ferry), and my family can be there, and my dogs can be there, and my whole staff can be there, until we get done suing Seattle for this $50 million that I want for crippling my reputation as a father, and a black man, and as a taxpaying citizen, and as a person who is not a convicted felon.”
Katt seems a little distraught in the video, but hopefully this retirement will serve as the first step in his road to recovery. Possibly he could utilize all of the free time he will have for soul searching, rehabilitation and even some therapy.
What do you think of Katt’s retirement? Do you believe he is being serious or just emotionally reacting to his rough weekend in Seattle?
