Katt Williams Announces Retirement From Stand Up Following Seattle Incident


| December 4, 2012 - 3:55 pm

Katt Williams has been at the center of controversy for the past couple of days, but has all the drama been the deciding factor to make the comedian quit stand-up?

According to USA Today, Williams was ordered to leave a Seattle hotel, hours after he was released from King County Jail following a dispute at a bar.

The ordeal led to an interview with KOMO TV, canceling his stand-up tour & ultimately his career. Williams was scheduled to play Houston on Friday, New Orleans on Saturday and Mobile, Alabama, on Sunday.

A teary-eyed Katt says in the interview, “I’m just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from standup—I’m kinda done.”

Truthfully, we think it’s a good idea for Katt to take a break for a while. The pressure of a huge comedy tour paired with his personal issues might be getting the best of him. VIBE is praying for you homie.
