Katt Williams Explains Mo'Nique's Netflix Offer


Earlier this year Mo'Nique launched a boycott against Netflix claiming she was being paid less than her white and male counterparts [click here if you missed that].

Comedian Katt Williams explains why Mo'Nique was given a low offer...

Katt Williams tells V103 in Atlanta,
"Everybody has to understand that Netflix doesn't have an opinion on stand-up comedy. They base what they pay you by the amount of ticket sales for your last tour. So Mo'Nique's last tour had 316,000 tickets, therefore that's what she got offered. My last tour had 2.4 million tickets and so that's what the offer was." 
"If people understand that it's not personal then they could just, for free, take they ass to work and get they numbers up."

Well, when he breaks it down like that, it makes sense. Why didn't Mo'Nique know this about Netflix? Seems like it would have been explained to her.

Dave Chapel was given 20 mil. Did his last tour sell 20 mil tickets? I'm curious.

Stop being obtuse. Monique isn’t selling therefore she don’t get paid.

i am sure it was explained to her. you have to be willing to listen to what they are telling you. She and they queen husband think they know everything.

If there was a stipulation that she couldn't do other projects under the condition of the contract I still can see her point. It makes more sense if they tried to low ball her while being stuck to a fucked up deal. Hell, that's stopping her bag from elevating more.
Katt may be telling the truth but it's hard to take the word of someone who has had several public embarrassments. Obviously the $24 million wasn't enough to calm him the fuck down acting all crazy like he is schizophrenic.

What he is saying....she doesn't sell tickets. So, why would NetFlix pay her millions of dollars. When was the last time Monique did anything worth while. She should have used the deal with NetFlix to get back in the game. But, EGO and Pride got the best of her and her husband.

Monique should call Katt and he can teach her the game. Show her how to own her shit and make the big bucks like you.

10:40 am The language in that contract is standard. They don't want her selling the same hour "assembly of jokes" to another outlet or continuing to do those jokes. It devalues their material. Most comedians stop doing an hour set after they do a special. They tour on a set jokes, do a special then that material is dead.

It's standard practice.

@9:20 Dave Chappell may have been close because his tour last year had several back to back, sold out, 2 shows a day at Radio City. Plus other cities that he played, most shows were sold out.

The interview he did was very insightful.

Katt has a lot of knowledge about the industry.
