Katt Williams ushers in Kattpacalypse, exploding with more energy than an atomic bomb and riffing on everything from Doomsday to Obama. Katt Williams has been the best selling urban comic in the last 10 years and proved to have explosive sales across all platforms from DVD to tours.
I‘ve never been a fan of his, but I tried watching Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse in an unbiased, would-his-fans-enjoy-it way. Then he started his routine and did nothing but piss me off. Ok, let me backtrack, the one time I laughed in this hour long special is at the beginning when he was talking about coming out of “retirement” and doing a special with hair that looks like the mayor in Whoville from a Dr. Seuss story. That was funny. Then came the f-bombs and non-stop use of the N-word. Seriously, if there is a Guinness World Record for use of the N-word, I’m pretty sure Katt blew by it in this one.
He starts with President Obama. I expected him to do nothing but praise him, but he does make fun of him and what the African-American community expected from him. And then that’s when he got into religion. Now I don’t know if he’s always been this religious or found God while “retired”, but he lost me here. At one point in time he calls Atheists retarded and denies evolution. He gives the prototypical stupid remark of if we evolved from monkeys, why are their monkeys still left? Well Katt if you are too stupid to understand science, that’s not my fault. He goes on a rant about needing to find God/Jesus before the end of 2012 because we are all going to die and you’ll want to have something to believe in when the world is ending.
Oh, it gets worse. If a Republican talks poorly about homosexuality, the gay community goes crazy and Liberals want that person thrown out of the government. Well Mr. Williams brings up the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and how God burned both those cities to the ground for men laying with other men. But it’s ok because he says he’s not homophobic and doesn’t mind two women getting it on. Lovely. And if you noticed, I put quotes around his retirement. Sure he didn’t do any shows for a couple of years, but it’s also because he was arrested 14 times. But according to him, he never went to court and that was just the man or whoever trying to keep him down or whatever idiotic excuse one makes for being arrested 14 times.

Clearly Katt Williams: Kattpacalypse isn‘t for me. I honestly wouldn‘t recommend it to anyone. I usually can tell some people to see a stand up routine even if I don‘t like it, but he‘s not getting that from me. I won‘t support someone who wants to burn down cities of gay men, doesn‘t believe in evolution and calls those who do retarded, and any other crazy idea he has.
NOT FOR ME!
