Katt Williams

Comedian Katt Williams is often compared to iconic comedian Richard Pryor because of his troubled and tragicomic life. The Ohio native, known for his routines on pimp philosophies, the perils of being a short-statured man and his "tell it like it is" viewpoint, burst onto the scene in 2002 as the character Money Mike in the film Friday After Next. Williams has performed at the Laugh Factory, The Improv and The Comedy Store. The single dad of eight (seven of whom were adopted) has appeared on TV in Girlfriends, NYPD Blue and My Wife and Kids. Despite his legal troubles and constant media coverage for his wild behavior and riotous shows, the funny man is still standing, playing himself in the 2013 film Scary Movie 5
