Even a pint-sized standup comedian can use a good prop, and Katt Williams had one of the best — a briefcase stuffed with cash. While he cracked jokes at the Laugh Factory last Sunday night, the comedian with a taste for fedoras, wide lapels and luxurious hair stunned fans when he handed out $100 bills to everyone in the audience - leaving him $29,000 out of pocket. Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada explained how Williams wanted to show he had not forgotten his roots and gave out the large bills as a 'thank you' to his loyal fans. He adds, "You should have seen it. Some people were crying. They came to see the show and they got $100." Well, at least those folks at the Laugh Factory got their money's worth as well as a Big Ben from Williams. Unfortunately though, fans who attended the comedian's It's Pimpin' Pimpin' Comedy Tour stop in Chicago late last year can't say the same. After Williams admitted to giving a drunk-and-high-as-hell piss-poor performance at the Arie Crown Theater in Chicago, the petite pimp promised his fans that he'd give them their money back and a free copy of his new cd.

According to one concert goer: The show was so bad that Katt was having conversations with members of the audience. Whatever the people were saying he said that he wanted to leave us with something good, his new cd for free and a full rebate on our tickets. I was so happy to hear that I would be getting my $160 back, considering I really didn’t enjoy the show. When he said that we would be getting our money back, he meant it. Even his manager didn’t believe it and he apologized to us and told us he was completely serious and to speak to the people at the box office. When we left I was happy to be getting something out of the night. We reached the box office with our free cd to find the security telling people that there would be no refunds handed out and that Katt Williams was full of shit.

Dude, I just want my money back for a shitty performance.

Ain't that a kick in the head?
