Katt Williams Retires, Un-retires from Stand-up

By December 9, 2012

Follow me on:

Katt WilliamsWhat a month Katt Williams has had.

He bailed on two different stand-up performances, which mostly consisted of bizarre behavior, angry tirades, stripping off his clothes and getting into fights with audience members. He was sued by a former assistant who is claiming he attacked her and put her in the hospital. He was arrested for assault after allegedly attacking someone with a bottle on board his tour bus. He was sued again by audience members from the stand-up shows that were cut short. He led police in California on a motorcycle chase. He slapped a Target employee and fled the store on an electric shopping cart. He failed to show up to one stand-up gig in Seattle, then allegedly hits an audience member with a microphone the next night. He was kicked out of a hotel. He was arrested again for assault following a fight in a sports bar.

This literally all took place from November until now.

Early last week, Williams told a Seattle news station that he was retiring from stand-up following all of his legal troubles. Then, just a few days later, Williams' managers issued a statement that he is not retiring, and that his stand-up tour will continue as planned. Apparently, the reason for his announced retirement is that he has been feeling unappreciated lately.

So, good news for Katt Williams fans: his retirement lasted only four days, and he'll still be doing stand-up for the forseeable future. Bad news for everyone else: Katt Williams remains at large.
