The Lighter Side of Pimping

Cleveland theater
Comedian Katt Williams looks like the slickest pimp on the block: With his permed hair and mack-daddy outfits, the Dayton-bred comic seems better suited for street corners than stages. He's best known for his role on MTV's Nick Cannon Presents Wild 'N Out, but anyone lucky enough to catch a music video on the network has probably spotted him in clips with Lil' Kim, Ludacris, and OutKast. Williams is working on a rap album of his own, due later this year. In the meantime, he's on a stand-up tour, spotlighting fast-talking characters like Money Mike. Don't be blinded by the onstage bling, however; Williams is a funny guy, and a pro at tweaking hip-hop and street stereotypes. He may not be in Dave Chappelle's league yet, but he's getting there quickly.
