He’s back. Comedian Katt Williams will be returning to HBO with a new stand-up special. This will be Williams fourth special with HBO having previously appeared on the network with his hour specials The Pimp Chronicles Pt.1 in 2006, followed up by It’s Pimpin’, Pimpin’ in 2008, and Kattpacalypse in 2012. Between all of these, the comedian has retired and un-retired from comedy twice. Doesn’t seem the man can stay away.
Williams is set to record his new special on May 17th in Ontario, Canada at the Citizen’s bank arena. For this special, Williams has enlisted a heavy hitter behind the camera: director Spike Lee.
Getting Spike Lee to direct your stand-up special seems to be the new trend. Lee just recently directed rising comedy star, Jerrod Carmichael‘s first special last night in Los Angeles. Bring on the era of auteur specials.
