katt williamsFor today’s Tuesday Stand Up comedy special, I wanted to review a comedian that I have been a huge fan of since day one. Everybody remembers the first time they saw Katt Williams. Well, at least I remember the first time I saw Katt Williams which was in Friday After Next. Well, after tons of amazing comedy specials that were downright hilarious, Katt Williams returned with a HBO comedy special titled Katt Williams: Priceless: Afterlife which was aired on HBO in 2014 which was performed at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Cal. In this one hour special, Katt tackles tons of topics within several themes that fill up the hour from being united, stopping racism, and issues of trust. Within those themes, he talks about his life, getting arrested five times in five days, weed places, America, Oklahoma Tornado, Paula Dean, Dikembe Mutombo, homophobia, Jason Collin, Dennis Rodman, Michael Sams, church, Pope Francis, Atheists, doctors, Michael Douglas, and so much more.

katt 2Katt Williams is honestly one of the funniest men in the world and I do not care what people think of the next statement. I put Katt Williams in the same class of African American comedians as Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Rock. I have never once watched a comedy special from Katt Williams and not laughed uncontrollably. The man has an ability to be serious and funny at the same time. There are very few comedians in the world that have my respect like the respect I have for Katt Williams. Not only are his jokes funny, but he is also a very physical comedian who almost acts out the jokes which amplify the hilariousness even more. One of my favorite parts of his set besides the wardrobe malfunction had to be when he talked about watching white people in their natural habitat referring the show Swamp People. The way he acts out the joke is very funny and his whole bit on homophobia is pretty funny too. If you have never seen a special from this man then you are doing yourself a great disservice especially if you are a fan of stand up comedy. He is definitely one of the greats and that is the bottom line. I am giving this special an A- for a final grade.
