Even a 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 on Sunday night, the comedian with a taste for fedoras and wide lapels worked the audience, handing out $100 bills to everybody. In all, the comedian handed out about $29,000, Laugh Factory owner Jamie said.
“You should have seen it,” Masada said. “Some people were crying. They came to see the show and they got $100.”
Williams’ manager didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail Tuesday, but Masada said the comedian told the audience he hadn’t forgotten his roots and wanted to thank his loyal audience.
