Fire it up, folks. This years South Beach Comedy Festival features a sundry side-splitting lineup including Kathy Griffin, Louis C.K., Dave Attell, Jeff Dunham, and Susie Essman. But tonight at the Fillmore, its all about the dude with the perm. Katt Williams will make you laugh so hard you might just poop your pants. If you saw his new movie, American Hustle, on Comedy Central last weekend, you know what were talking about: Williams struts onstage as Rick Rosss Hustlin blares in the background. Thats my song! Thats my sheeit, he shrieks in his signature high-pitch voice. Ask any nigga that hustles -- that is our national anthem.
Dressed like a crazy little pimp with relaxed hair, he paces back and forth, babbling about crackheads, Saddam Hussein, and Michael Jackson as the audience guffaws uncontrollably. Listen while a pimp is talkin; Im just trying to help you. You gotta enjoy your motherfuckin life, thats all I'm saying. Some of you all just need to smoke some weed. Take his advice. Get a Dutch and go see the new king of underground comedy. Katts show starts at 8 p.m. Visit www.southbeachcomedyfestival.com to check out the event schedule, or call 305-673-7300 for more information.
