You know him as Lord Have Mercy from Norbit, Harry Beaver from Epic Movie and Money Mike from Friday After Next. In other words, you don't know comedian Katt Williams from a slew of high-brow, Oscar-worthy cinema. Course, you might also be familiar with the permed and pimpin' wonder thanks to Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out and a few television specials, namely Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1. Word. The high-pitched voice behind The Boondocks' A Pimp Named Slickback comes to Grand Prairie's Nokia Theatre, 1001 Performance Drive, 7:30 p.m. Thursday for a live show that can only rival his performance as host on BET's Hip-Hop Award Show. Damn, it's too bad he wasn't in Pootie Tang...now that was a quality piece of celluloid. Nevertheless, Rolling Stone said, "Katt Williams is one of Hollywood's most sought after comedians, touted as the next Richard Pryor." That's a big pair of shoes to fill. See if Williams, and his hair, can do just that for $39.50 or $49.50 per ticket. Call 214-373-8000 or visit ticketmaster.com.
