Katt Williams, best known for his comedic stand-up acts, was filmed taking a swing at an unidentified man onstage at the Trocadero Theatre Sunday night.
The scuffle went down at Beanie Sigel's Top Shotta show, co-headlined by Jahlil Beats and featuring rap performances by Jadakiss, Dave East and Lil Mo. According to TMZ, the brawl followed erratic behavior from Williams that involved freestyling, doing pushups and "standing around in a fight stance."
Williams, who was in town for a performance at Temple University's Liacouras Center, was seen speaking in a video obtained by WorldStarHipHop recorded the night after the Trocadero Theatre incident, reflecting on the fight.
"I heard after his show at the Liacouras they beat Kat Williams *** and then they robbed him," Williams said, speaking in the third person. "Now, Kat Williams at his show at the Liacouras Center said to the fans, ‘It’s getting to a point now where you can’t believe what you see or believe what you hear.’"
The clip also seems to confirm Williams' retirement from stand-up.
Williams was arrested just last week for allegedly punching a clerk at a pool supply store in Gainesville, Georgia. That is in addition to accusations from five Atlanta women that Williams pointed a gun at them and stole their phones.
Williams, never short on bravado, had also challenged Kevin Hart to a $5 million comedy showdown during his time in Philly. Sadly, that never came to be.
