Here's a story that happened the other day and now it's all over the news. There was a crazy scene at the World Sports Grill in Seattle on Sunday with this little guy (didn't realize he was "celebrity" comedian, Katt Williams). I go to this place every Sunday to watch the Browns and there's like 100 fans every week - same nice people. This guy was bothering people, yapping constantly about random stuff, saying he was gonna buy drinks for all (didn't), super loud, circling the bar with a pool cue in hand, looking out the windows all paranoid, very manic behavior. He had words with me when he saw me shaking my head at him. He called me out as a Mitt Romney look alike which was pretty funny. And I countered by calling him Little Richard which made everyone laugh.
People at the bar heard he was a comedian and maybe doing a sketch or something but there were no cameras and there was nothing funny about him with his coked out behavior in front of his kids:
No question he was on drugs and I guess he's been arrested a lot lately and was booted from several Seattle hotels. He's all of 5'5"....but he had some guys floating around and it was all pretty sketchy. He threatened the bar manager with the pool cue and threw a rock at a passing car with a family in it that he yelled at when they were trying to leave. It was totally surreal.
The infamous (Tupac/Biggie murder rumors) Suge Knight was there too trying to talk sense into him and keep him from getting arrested. He's his manager. Knight is an absolutely huge dude (prob 6'5", 300+) and the comedian came up to me with him and said to Knight - "this is the guy that was talking sh!7 about me". Because I had talked to the cops about my concerns when they showed up looking for him. Knight didn't even so much as look at me or say a word but it was clear the little guy was trying to intimidate me. I didn't know what was going on so I left after the comedian got arrested. He was resisting arrest and the cop grabbed him by the throat, lifted him off the ground and threw him in the squad car...the whole scene was crazy, lots of people were watching & taking pics/videos. It's all over the news if you Google "Kat Williams". So I just went to the bar to watch a Browns game and got to see this guy in full meltdown mode. Look for him on "Celebrity" Rehab soon...
Wow. Crazy story man. I actually like Katt's material as a comedian... he's funny in that regard.
His skits talk about him doing drugs often, but this changes my perception of him as a dude. Throwing rocks at cars? Senseless. Glad he got arrested. But hey, "real men" deal with their problems drinking, so hats off to him for manning up.

man I don't have a deathwish, I didn't say jack to Suge Knight...Why he didn't just pick up Katt and put him in his pocket and walk out of the bar I'll never know. He was following around Katt for a long time just trying to talk sense into a totally coked-out maniac.
I do a lot of open mics in LA and have met several big names. This comes as no surprise.
Comedians have a very dark side to them, are often arrested, engage in bizarre behavior, and are addicted to drugs (Carlin Carlin, Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, Sam Kinnison, Bill Hicks, Chris Farley, Andy Dick, Mitch Hedberg, John Belushi, and even Dave Chappelle was arrested for barging into the cockpit of a flight)
