Beginning his career at an age when most teenagers are seeking their driver’s license, the young comic quickly discovered that he had a gift for making people laugh. Inspired by the likes of great humorists such as Richard Pryor, Donn Knotts, Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby, George Carlin, Thomas Marshall, Jeff Foxworthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Dave Chapelle, whom he calls the “Malcolm X of comedy,” Katt Williams’ entertaining standup routines are laying the blueprint for a new generation of comics.  Since 1999 when Katt became a presence at The Improv, The Comedy Club, The Icehouse and The Hollywood Park Casino, he’s become somewhat of a staple comedic force on the BET Network, appearing on shows such as Comic View, Rip the Runway, Rap City, 106th & Park, The BET Awards and BET Comedy Awards. Throughout his success he has been massively embraced by the Hip Hop community, receiving praise from Master P and Snoop Dogg.

Katt Williams’ talent extends over multiple mediums. Known to most for his breakout role in Nick Cannon’s MTV improv show, “Wild n’ Out,” the funnyman has appeared in music videos for everyone from Outkast and Ludacris to E-40 and Lil’ Kim, in addition to landing roles on the small and big screen. Some of his appearances include “NYPD Blue,” UPN’s “Girlfriends” and “Cuts,” “The Tracy Morgan Show,” Russell Simmon’s HBO “Def Comedy Jam” alongside Dave Chappelle and Mike Epps, the Eddie Murphy film “Norbit,” the hit romantic comedy “Perfect Christmas” and an animated character (“A Pimp Named Slickback”) on the popular adult cartoon The Boondocks. Katt continues to receive stamps of approvals from the urban and mainstream community for his brilliance and ingenuity on screen and on-stage including being named “hottest new comedian” in Rolling Stone Magazine.

Telling jokes with ease, the stand-up comic/actor wants to conquer the globe’s problems with laughter. The current Los Angeles resident has undoubtedly become a fixture on the comedic and Hollywood landscape with more than enough charisma and talent to spare. Possessing the ability to make millions of people laugh, Katt Williams is healing the world one smile at a time.
