The guardian angel of comedian Katt Williams must surely be tired by now.

Yesterday (Wednesday, March 23, 2016) a footage of the 42-year-old being choked out surfaced on the Internet. The video clip was another sad proof that all is not well with Katt Williams.

This year the 5ft stand up comedian has been consistently getting into trouble again including fighting on the stage of a concert in Philadelphia.

From bumbling into one fight into another, Williams’ mouth has been saying some controversial things also. In February 2016, he said actor/comedian Kevin Hart was a puppet.

“I don’t care nothin’ ‘bout that happens to Kevin [Hart], I just wish him the best. I just know that that’s somebody’s hand is stuck up that baby, you understand? Oh, we’re a puppet show, boo boo. Please believe it. You’re looking at the only n**** that ain’t” said the controversial comedian.

Katt Williams is spiralling out of control, and it’s ugly to watch. The first time I saw him was in the 2002 Ice Cube movie ‘Friday After Next’.  In the movie co-starring Mike Epps, Katt Williams plays a hilarious pimp.

He was dressed like a pimp. He looked slick and talked slicker. His high pitch voice, mannerism and perm helped him steal the scene in the movie. When he delicately squeezed Terry Crews’ ‘nuts’ with a plier I was laughing my head off.

Katt Williams definitely caught the eye of a lot of people in that movie. He was funny and animated. In the world of stand up comedy he was already a huge talent and crossing over into Hollywood looked like the right move for him. The sky was his stepping stone.

Sadly the prophecies were wrong about him if you consider his legal troubles. From November 2012-December 2012 he was arrested four times. In his 2014 HBO Special directed by Spike Lee, Katt Williams: Priceless: Afterlife he claimed he was arrested “five times in five cities in five days.” It’s unfortunate to see someone so talented like Williams being dragged down by his demons.

Some have pointed to the comedian's alleged use of drugs for his troubles and floundering career. He has however dismissed these claims. If that’s not the case then we have to look at the strong possibility of mental issues.

 

Katt Williams does not look like a man who is presently thinking at full capacity. I won’t be surprised he has mental health issues. The sad thing that there is no one around him that can make him go for treatment.

In 2008 someone who claimed to be a member of his team told popular blogger Necole Bitchie that the comedian had been diagnosed as “bipolar/schizophrenic” and refused to go for treatment.

Eight years after it seems the stand-up comedian's condition has gone worse, and there is no one out there to help him. A lot of celebrities and stars have mental issues but they have no one to advise them. They are mostly surrounded by yes men, and boot lickers. When their conditions worsen these sycophants will flee and abandon them.

This is what is happening to Katt Williams right now. There is no one around to help him. What we are witnessing is the degradation of a marvellously talented comedian. By the time help comes it might be too late for Katt Williams. He needs help now.
