Katt Williams: It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’ (DVD Review)9 Nov, 2008 By: Pete Croatto
$19.99 DVD, $29.99 Blu-ray
Popular actor and comedian Katt Williams (First Sunday, American Hustle) riffs on the personal, political and absurd in his latest stand-up special, filmed at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
Williams constantly reminds the members of the crowd to look out for themselves, urging them to “treat your star player a little better in 2008.” The comedian uses that self-help plea as a springboard for his observations, which are delivered with equal doses of profanity and energy. Overall, the special is enjoyable and definitely not for kids.
Williams jokes about presidential politics, steroids, the importance of men honing their sexual technique, and his admiration for Kevin Federline for “following the pimp manual line by line” in his relationship with Britney Spears.
Williams also recalls his experiences emceeing the roast of reality TV star/former rap star Flavor Flav, smoking pot with a vaporizer, and riding a motorcycle (unsuccessfully).
The DVD also includes a short segment in which Williams meets the real people of Washington, D.C. Williams rides about the city in a limo as he is escorted by sullen men who are obviously bodyguards. Way to keep it real, Katt.
