Let’s hope things aren’t too serious for Katt Williams, who ended his show early in Atlanta claiming that he was too sick to continue his show. Last night for a stop on his Born Again..Again tour Williams took to the stage to entertain Atlanta fans at Phillips Arena but cut the night short about 30 minutes into his performance. Fans who attended the event recounted that Williams mentioned being on medication for a shoulder injury and spider bite before leaving. Instagram user B__Cabral, detailed the moments that occurred just before Katt exited the stage.

Katt Williams said at least 50 times, “Don’t judge. You never know what is going on or what people are going through.” He was funny. As he always is when I’ve seen him. He did keep having awkward pauses, finally admitted he wasn’t feeling well and asked the crowd to be patient with him. He pressed through another piece of a joke then paused again. After a few swallows of water, he paced, then leaned over on the stool on the stage. Looked around and said calmly into the mic, “I’m sorry. I need a minute. I’m sorry.” And RAN backstage. It legit seemed like something was WRONG. There are several posts online saying he said he was drunk and high, (he didn’t say that). He said he was on medication for both his shoulder injury and a Brown Recluse spider bite (Google that – it will lend perspective). I hope the man is okay. I hope the show tomorrow goes better for him. At the end of the day, in the 30 or so minutes he performed, his message was right: “You never know what a person is going though.”

After the night’s end, fans quickly took to Twitter to recall what happened with mix reactions. Williams is set to perform in Houston, Texas next week.

Update: The following night on Sunday, Williams was set to perform for a reported 18,000 fans at the same arena in Atlanta. It was said that after a few of the opening acts performed, the host took to the stage and announced Williams would not be performing. Immediately once the announcement was made the crowd showed disappointed with the news, similar to Saturday night when Williams exited the stage early. Earlier in the day, Katt sent out a tweet assuring fans that he was ready to go and feeling much better compared to Saturday’s show.


No word on Katt’s current status or if Sunday’s no show dealt with his health but just like Saturday fans took to social media to share their reaction.

  1. As a nurse and a shoulder surgery patient …. I know first hand the effects of Percocet. That medicine will make you sick as hell I pray he will be okay. And for the record he was not drunk or high

  2. As a nurse and a shoulder surgery patient …. I know first hand the effects of Percocet. That medicine will make you sick as hell I pray he will be okay. And for the record he was not drunk or high

  3. He actually did say he was drunk and high… he said I feel drink AND high right now. An audience member encouraged him to “drink some water dummie.” whatever went wrong it was sad to watch

  4. No, his actual words, which ppl keep misconstruing were “normally he would be drunk and high right now, but he’s on percocet” #hisrealwords

  5. No shade, but his actual words, which ppl keep misconstruing were “normally he would be drunk and high right now”, but he was on percocet #hisrealwords

  6. Saying your feeling like you’re drunk and high is not the same as saying you’re drunk and high…

  7. No shade, but his actual words, which ppl keep misconstruing were “normally he would be drunk and high right now”, but he was on percocet, he acted neither, why else would anyone assume that he was.

  8. I’m confused because I clearly remember him saying that he couldnt take the Percocet because it was interfering with him smoking weed, and he couldn’t do anything that would interfere with him smoking weed. What show were you at?

  9. I was there he clearly said he was high as fuck. The spider bite was weeks ago and the shoulder injury was a joke. The man was high. Period and he said it several times. No excuse for what happenes

  10. If he isn’t feeling well, I do hope he feels better, but I still feel that we deserve a credit towards another show. We saw more from the opening acts than of him. I feel like I didn’t get my money’s worth.

  11. Whatever the circumstance, I paid for a ticket to see Katt Williams, not the 4 comedians (excuse me, one did not count even though she tried, so I will give her an E for effort) that preceded Katt. I, too, hope that Katt feels better, but for whatever an individual paid for ticket(s), we did not get our money’s worth. Just saying. But Richie Redding was absolutely hilarious!

  12. At leaat yall got 30 mins. Tonighy he didnt even come out. They said he was being taken to the hospital right before he was to come out… smdh. Paid for tickets n didn’t even get to see him.

  13. I know somebody has video… He said that he would normally be drunk or high but he was on percocet. This man clearly looked ill and didn’t perform to his normal standard. I pray he gets well soon.
    I know the effects of percocet and it is no joke. I truly believe his body temp changed too rapidly last night which caused the need to run off stage. If you were there, you noticed the extreme sweat, the awkward pauses, then he removed his jacket, then drank some water like the lady suggested. Quick changes in body temperature can cause anyone to be nauseous. #PrayingforKatt
