American Hustle, Katt Williams
American Hustle: The Movie is a comedy film directed by Brit McAdams and written by both Brit McAdams and Williams that was released in 2007. Williams determines throughout the film that he wants to make it in Hollywood and meets with big-shot producers who sell him conventional movie pitches. Williams, dissatisfied, decides to embark on a road trip with a group of pals, including comedians Luenell Campbell, Melanie Comarcho, and Red Grant.
The first half of the film shows stand-up comedy by his pals as they travel from town to town, but when they arrive in Chicago, he saves the day and takes over the rest of the film with his open yet underground-style stand-up comedy. Following that, the film concludes with musical performances by Williams, Da Brat, and Snoop Dogg, which also serve as soundtracks.
Houston’s Katt Williams
Williams had to cancel and reschedule his Houston show on February 13th, 2015 due to an infected spider bite on his leg, which forced him to cancel and reschedule his Houston performance. According to a press release from Williams’ tour organization, tickets for the Friday, February 13 “Born Again…Again” concert were to be honored on Saturday, April 11 at 8 p.m.
The bite, which had previously been treated unsuccessfully with an antibiotic, caused another postponement the following weekend, according to organizers.
“I’d like to express my gratitude to all of my followers for their patience, support, and understanding as I recover. Williams said in a statement sent by his spokeswoman, Stacey Perry, “I will be back in action in no time and can’t wait to tear it up on the stage again soon.”
Tink Tink Katt Williams
In 2008, Williams released It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’, his second HBO comedy special, in which he addressed the problem of Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee sprinter nicknamed “blade runner” who beat able-bodied men to victory.
However, Pistorius’ artificial legs sparked controversy, and the International Association of Athletic Foundations (IAAF) prohibited him from competing in 2007, claiming that his artificial legs provided him an unfair edge over able-bodied competitors. Pistorius immediately filed an appeal, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned the IAAF decision in May 2008. The ‘tink’ ‘tink’ sound made by the blades while Pistorius was sprinting is imitated in the comedy special.
