Raised in Cincinnati, comedian Katt Williams rose to popularity in 1999, when he began to tour extensively. He has since become known for TV and film appearances in "The Boondocks" (voice acting credit), "Norbit," and "First Sunday," but is probably most recognized for his role as Money Mike in "Friday After Next." He has occasionally forayed into the rap scene under the Money Mike persona, but his tried-and-true performance success has always been his stand-up. Williams has stirred some controversy throughout his career with legal run-ins, and his announced "retirement" from the comedy circuit in 2012 — which subsequently ended three days later. Since 2013, he's been touring regularly, though, and still draws big crowds with his boisterous routines.
