Katt Williams Announces His Retirement


After a tumultuous stay in Seattle Katt Williams has decided to throw in the towel on his stand up comedy career...

Katt tells Komo News 4
"I'm just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from standup, I'm kinda done. I've discussed it with my kids, I wasn't really gonna do in the middle of a Seattle street, I was going to go to Los Angeles and do it in the offices of ICM or LiveNation."

Damn he looks terrible! I sure hate he's going down the wrong path. He had the potential to go far in his career before all this mess starting going down. I think he is very funny, unlike Kevin Hart...So sad..

The anchor's final words in this clip contained no lies. Katt is unpredictable.

TRACY SAID- KATT, THE DEVIL IS A LIAR! said...

Katt, this is a good first step, take time off to get yourself together. I don't know what you believe, or if you believe at all. GOD is Good and don't want know one to perish.

Saatan is a liar and the father of lies. Satan come to seek, kill and destoy, with his bags of tricks. Sometimes in life people have to hit rock bottom, before they reconize that they are going out of the world backwards. there is no one walking this earth taht is perfect, but the pleasures of sin and living in the fast lane comes with a price.

The High Cost of Sin...(Romans 6:23). The momentary, fleeting pleasure of sin (Hebrews 11:25) is all the bait the Devil needs with some people. Sin is dangerous because the Devil is shrewd and man is gullible. Too many people rather believe a lie and be ...The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

GOD BLESS!!-

Hmmm, he's wearing a Kurt Kobain T-Shirt. Strong message there.

Loves Katt... This is so sad. I think this is a good move for him. He needs some time out of the spotlight to get himself together. He was a man to always take pride in his appearance. He looks terrible here. I hope he's able to re-group and come back, and make people laugh again. He's a very funny comedian.

Blood in,blood out,katt. It's not so easy to get out. You better pull a Dave Chappelle.

Kids? What Kids? Has CPS/DSS not taken custody of those children by now?
Aren't these kids he talks about like adopted or something. I recall years ago, he said he has 6-six children. This man needs Dr. Drew and bus ticket to Montana. He does not need kids.

That nigga BEEN retired.. All he's done lately is headline a traveling fight club..

Omerey said...

Why won't anyone help him, he still has a lot of love from his fans, people go through things in life,it is what it is....my prayers go to out him and his family.
Learn compassion people.

@BeeGee cosign!

And sometimes my people grown people have to first help themselves. He is not a child.

@12:24 I agree. I saw the video for his recent show in Oakland. He did not tell jokes but every blog titled it as a "breakdown." Katt did not have a breakdown nor did he tell jokes. Too Short and Suge Knight were there, in the video Katt said "I'm rollin with the nigga that killed Tupac." He stood there and was telling the truth about the industry and what is being done to him as people were leaving. As soon as the police felt enough people had gone, they rushed in and attacked him on stage.

People are not paying attention, this is the route they put celebrities through, i.e, crazy, drug addicted and play it in the media when one does not want to comply. He used to tell jokes about what was going on behind the scenes, gay parties in mansions, orgies, etc. He has been arrested countless times and never got a court date. He knows how this is going to play out in the end.

Ain't no "Powers that Be" attacking this junkie!
We still refuse to admit when our folks have problems! This n&gga is a straight up JUNKIE-a strung out one at that.
But dummies don't want to see it.
Hell, Kat said it himself in one of his shows..
"Whitney Houston has smoked her kneecaps off and black people are still talking about..nah uh!"
Jokes on YOU know Katt!

@1:31 PM Yeah, it is a Kurt Cobain T-Shirt. Maybe he's wearing it to pay homage to Cobain since he's in Seattle and Cobain is from Seattle. God forbid he goes down that suicidal path.

Anonymous said...

If or when ever I see him, I would give him a hug and tell him that I love him.

Thank God because he is a suicide waiting to happen.

@4:40 I agree. It's unfortunate that katt williams does have a drug problem but they are using it to their advantage to stage the perfect murder of someone that exposed them.

Quiana said...

@440pm- Yes my friend was there and yes he was talking about hollyweird and he did say that about Suge. People just don't want to listen. I hope people would wake up and pay attention.

I hope he takes his kids and moves away from the states for awhile. Wishing him the best. If robert downey jr's career drug addicted ass can get it together, there is hope for Katt. Some people just shouldn't be in the industry, it destroys them completely. Usually it's the ones with a conscience.

He was more disgusting than funny, anyway. Nothing humorous about abusing other people and messing over their time and money. Good bye and good riddance. I hope he does what is best for the children he has custody of. His public persona does not present him as a good example for them.

Anonymous said...

Part of me wants to say that's sad because he's talented and I was a huge Katt stan but being in the business is not what's best for everyone. I think that if Whitney and Michael were able to spend more time working on themselves and trying to live a normal life they would both be here. The pressure to perform and keep up appearances was too much for both of them.

@1224 "They wanted to keep Katt quiet. Mission Accomplished"
Who the hell is "they"? Is this supposed to be some kind of commentary on the white man keeping the black man down? I used to love Katt, but HE did this to HIMSELF! People need to quit with all this crap about who did what to him, why he isn't funny worth a sh*t anymore, etc. Katt is a DRUG ADDICT plain and simple. I also believe he is suffering from some kind of mental illness, which may be why he's gone to drugs. A lot of people do not want to have to see a doctor, statistically black men are the least likely to seek psychiatric help. I truly believe he needs rehab, a good psychiatric doctor, some counseling so he can start working through his issues and a circle of friends that don't encourage his bad behavior. I can say I used to be a fan of his, and maybe will be again one day if he makes a sober and healthy return. For now, he needs to stay out of the media. I also agree with 727pm, I hope his public persona isn't the private one as well. If so, we all need to pray for the children in his custody.

..Well he's suppose to be in New Orleans soon, hosting some party. We'll see how it plays out.

F*ck Seattle. No Komo.

@8:10. Not a black or white thing at all. Prof Griff predicted Katt would follow Dave Chapelle's lead the moment he outed those gays in the industry... It is no secret there are people who don't want Katt doing standup due to the fact he is known to say ANYTHING. He's a loose cannon that's seen too much. If u don't want to be informed on just how evil the industry of entertainment is that's fine but don't try to insinuate someone else is stupid because they actually know things you don't...

Ok didn't he pull similar shenanigans a while back???? He needs to change his circle and seek some professional help.

Hopefully he can defeat the demon. Mental illness is no joke.
This is the same pattern Whitney and Michael experienced before
Their demise.
