Katt Williams - Katt Williams: 'I'm Retiring From Stand-up'

Embattled comedian Katt Williams has announced his retirement from the stage just a day after he was arrested for his part in a vicious bar fight in Seattle, Washington.

The arrest is the latest in a long line of legal woes for the funnyman, and it appears to have taken the fun out of life.

In a rambling interview with Komo Tv on Monday night (03Dec12), Williams announced his current stand-up tour has been cancelled - and he is planning to retire from stand-up.

The First Sunday star said, "I'm just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from stand-up, I'm kinda done. I've discussed it with my kids, I wasn't gonna do (it) in the middle of a Seattle street, I was going to go to Los Angeles and do it in the offices of Icm (talent agency) or LiveNation (event promoters)."

Williams also told the street reporters he had been kicked out of four Seattle hotels in recent days, but didn't explain further. He also joked that he was considering buying the up-for-auction Washington State Ferry Rhododendron so he had a place to stay.

He said, "I can stay (on the ferry), and my family can be there, and my dogs can be there, and my whole staff can be there, until we get done suing Seattle for this $50 million that I want for crippling my reputation as a father, and a black man, and as a taxpaying citizen, and as a person who is not a convicted felon."

Williams was released from jail early on Monday following his arrest at the World Sports Grille on Sunday (02Dec12).

He was booked for charges of assault, harassment and obstruction.

It has since emerged that he was also involved in a fight with three fans on Friday (30Nov12) after they forced their way into his dressing room before a show.
