Katt Williams and the Outlawz of Comedy Tour will be coming to the Chaifetz Arena at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25.
Known just as much for his permed hairstyle as he is for his animated performances and quick wit, Katt Williams began circulating the stand-up circuit in the late '90s including the Hollywood Park Casino, The Icehouse, and The Improv; he also became a staple on BET's standup programs.
In 2002, Williams accepted one of his first screen assignments with a small role in Marcus Raboy's Friday After Next. Five years later, Williams finally had the opportunity to team up onscreen with longtime idol Eddie Murphy, who cast him as Lord Have Mercy in the farce Norbit. That same year he appeared in the gag-laden Epic Movie and displayed a more somber side in the family-oriented Christmas drama The Perfect Holiday.
Joining Williams is Charlie Murphy, brother of comedy legend Eddie Murphy. Murphy is well-known for his role in the Rick James skits on Comedy Central's "Chapelle's Show" and has appeared in over twenty motion pictures. Rounding out the evening is Faizon Love who starred as Shane in the movie Couple's Retreat and has also appeared in Friday and Elf.
