“I’m just going to go ahead and announce my retirement from stand-up. I’m kinda done.”





Once-promising comic Katt Williams telling Seattle’s KOMO News that he’s throwing in the towel on his career after apparently realizing he’s become one of those entertainers more famous for getting arrested than entertaining. Will this pledge stick? Who knows, but Lindsay Lohan, please take note. His announcement — made on a Seattle sidewalk Monday night after getting evicted from a hotel — followed a couple of bizarre fights over the weekend, including an alleged bar brawl that got him charged with harassment and assault. See video of his interview. . .
