Continuously embattled comedian Katt Williams has recorded a new stand-up special, Kattpocalypse, for Showtime. It will premiere on the network on Aug 24 with the DVD release scheduled for Sept. 18.
Kattpocalypse will be Katt’s newest hour since the release of It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’ in 2008. Since then, the comedian and actor had kept a low profile, staying out of the public eye for the most part. Williams’ “disappearance” even prompted a Bring Katt Back Facebook page. However, last year, Williams got a lot of undesirable buzz after a meltdown on stage in Albuquerque, NM, where he shirked stand-up duties to provoke members of the crowd, take his shirt off, do some push-ups and then call it a night. Fortunately, it looks like Katt’s back to work. To get a taste of the new Katt, check out this clip from Kattpocalypse.
