Still spending your hard earned cash on buying tickets to Katt Williams‘ comedy shows? I’ve got a beach house I can sell you in Idaho.
Mercury News – Angry fans demanded refunds after comedian Katt Williams’ show Friday night at Oracle Arena disintegrated into chaos, with Williams delivering rambling monologues devoid of jokes and being dragged off by his own security after he challenged a heckler to fight.
Williams was already facing legal trouble over his stop in Oakland, with police arresting him in connection with a Wednesday night brawl aboard a tour van and the man he allegedly assaulted promptly suing for damages.

After Friday night’s show, angry comments from fans poured in on Facebook and Twitter, with some complaining that Williams’ show had ended after 10 minutes. Many said they expected a refund; ticket prices ranged from $33 to $94, plus service fees.
About seven or eight minutes after Williams took the stage for his set, Lucero said, he “started acting weird,” taking off his shirt and sweating profusely. Douglas said he quickly transitioned into his familiar closing bit, rattling off his various nicknames before leaving the stage.

“I was like, ‘That’s it?’” Douglas said. “After that, I saw everyone leaving … throngs of people leaving.”
Douglas and his father, who came to the show with him, left as well.
About 15 minutes passed, and between a quarter and half of the audience left, before Williams returned. Once he came back on stage the second time, Lucero said, “there were no more jokes.”
