DC Young Fly and Karlous Miller are keeping things going with their push for new radio podcast 85 South Show, presented by Comedy Hype. In the third episode of the series, veteran comedian Rodney Perry (of Bounce TV’s Off The Chain), Ronnie Jordan (Kampus Royalty Tour), and Rob Haze (Last Comic Standing) stopped by. Perry dropped off moments from his comedy up, that included his time in Oakland and competing in the Bay Area Black Comedy Festival. In part of their conversation and jokes, Perry retold a story of when he remembered Katt Williams showing up to the comedy club with own security guard before the fame.
The people that make it, know…. Katt Williams knew. Katt had won this contest… and he was auditioning for this spot to be the opening for the radio station and they didn’t have a dressing room for him. This was a big show. So he went on to take one of the bathrooms, took a sheet of paper and wrote a star on it and putt it up on the bathroom wall…. I remember thinking to myself that he was going to make it. He would do grand stand shit. Katt came in the club with this 6’8 dude, holding an umbrella in his hand. Katt told me the coldest shit I heard from anybody, he said, “N*gga I’m just trying to keep the hater-ade off me..” He was already a star.
Listen to the full story at the 20:00 mark, along with what each of the comedians have been up to. New episodes of The 85 South Show can be found on iTunes & Soundcloud.
