Katt Williams performs at Philips Arena at 8 p.m. March 16. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketmaster.com.
Promotional information bills him as a “legendary stand-up comedian, world-renowned actor, rapper and vanguard in an elite category of professionally-touring comics.”
No mention of his many encounters with law enforcement.
“The long-awaited rebirth of the beloved comedian is more than a reinvention, and the Katt with seemingly more than nine lives, is set to hit the road with a kind of vigor found only in newly-awakened individuals,” the press release advertising his appearance reads. “A Katt Williams stand-up show is more than a guaranteed belly laugh. As one of this generation’s rare urban public officials, Williams guarantees his audience an experience that will encourage further conversation after his curtain closes—it’s an articulate, sharp dialogue rooted in evergreen conversations — all a mere (and mirror) reflection of the American political landscape.”
