Known almost as much for his freshly permed hair as his humorous stories, there was a point when Katt Williams was in a position to inherit a ‘King of Comedy’ title. During the height of his career, Williams was one of the most sought after comedians. He would sell out shows and many people purchased his DVDs, making Williams a fortune. Unfortunately, a series of bad choices, run-ins with law enforcement officials and bad PR quickly led to many questioning if Katt was stable enough to maintain any real longevity as a comic.
In the news lately more for negativity than his talents, a recent story is showing a different side of Katt Williams. During a performance in Boston, Williams reportedly gave one of his fans a gift of $1,000.
New York Daily News reports that, “Williams 39, gave a wheelchair-bound member of the audience $1,000 after learning his fan needed a kidney transplant. Williams’ security noticed the woman in the crowd crying, but she insisted they were ‘tears of joy’ after Williams’ act made her laugh for the first time since she learned she needed the operation. Security brought her backstage to meet the funny man, who was so moved by her story that he gave her $100 bills equaling $1000 rolled up inside a piece of paper and a note reading: ’God never leaves.’”
This kind gesture goes a long way towards re-establishing Katt’s reputation. His previous behavior has included an incident of slapping a Target employee, carrying a concealed weapon in an airport and engaging in a series of verbal tirades with the media.
Die-hard Katt Williams fans are hoping that this generous gesture is a sign of things to come. No one likes to see someone waste his potential. In a society that banks on second chances, many are hoping that Katt is positioning himself for a rebound.
