Katt Williams Sued By Oakland Audience Member For Bad Performance

Katt Williams sued over bad performance

Comedian Katt Williams made headlines recently over an arrest in Oakland, almost cancelling a show over his legal troubles. He did the show anyway, but it was apparently so bad that at least one audience member has filed a lawsuit over it.

The latest in a string of bizarre headlines following the comedian has a member of his Oakland audience seeking damages from Williams after being underwhelmed by his performance at the show. Williams and promoter Live Nation are being served a class action lawsuit filed by Brian Herline on behalf of everyone who went to see the comedian’s November 16 performance, reports TMZ.

The lawsuit was filed on the day before Thanksgiving in Alameda County, California. According to the suit, Williams’ show ended after only 10 minutes, after the comedian “confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members.”

In light of this bizarre meltdown, Herline has decided to sue for “Katt Williams’ non-performance,” and is seeking unspecified damages.

Two days before the Oakland show, Williams was arrested on battery charges after allegedly hitting someone over the head with a bottle. Williams was caught on tape saying that his Friday night show would be cancelled, and complained that he was being wrongfully arrested, saying that he was outnumbered four-to-one.

We opined at the time that Williams was attempting to use his star power to garner sympathy to his plight, seemingly proven by the fact that he performed in Oakland anyway. However, there is as of yet no explanation for his brief and erratic performance.

Do you think that dissatisfied audience members should be able to sue over bad performances? If so, I can think of a few instances I’d like to get my money back.

    ALL MONEY IS NOT GOOD MONEY! TRUE PIMPS ARE KNOWN WORLDWIDE FROM COAST TO COAST. SO BEFORE YOU CLAIM, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A TEAM PLAYER? KW! JUST SAY NO!

    Praying for Mr. Williams and his Management team.May we bow our heads on this one.

    That nigga can`t get his money back. Katt didn`t promise you a good show, he just said he will perform, so that`s what you got.

    If in fact is was a ten minute show…get your money back you are entitled to that…there is a thin line between genius and insanity, Katt may need some time away from the spotlight in order to recharge. I hope it he can pull it together, I am praying for him.

    I was there and this is not about him giving a "bad performance" it's about not giving a performance at all. The few minutes he spent on stage was with him STARTING fights… No one can come to work high, fight customers, refuse deliver services and still gets paid. Everyone deserves a refund!

    I was in attendance at this show and vividly remember katt Williams informing the audience they could get their money back if hey were dissatisfied. I second the man that sued because katt Williams is the reason the tickets sold not the group of people he brought with him. I will never support another comedy show of him I am so disappointed and really wasted my hard earned money. What a joke, I wish I had the guys number who sued because he forgot to add the $35 fee for parking!! I want every dime I spent on that night back #teamrefund!
