Comedy fave Katt Williams was already supporting himself at the age of 13 working as a street vendor. Maybe that’s where he got his quick sense of humor. After honing his skills on the standup stage in his hometown of Cincinnati, Williams became a view on Comic View, where he was known as Katt “In the Hatt” Williams. A couple of HBO specials launched him into the comedy stratosphere; since then he’s appeared on the big screen, rapped as “Money Mike” (from his Friday After Next character) and continues to pack concert halls around the nation. This week, locals have two chances to see Williams deliver his quick-and-bawdy observational comedy.
