Katt Williams making three stops in Alabama on 2024 ‘Dark Matter’ tour

K att Williams, who recently sparked controversy with comments about the roles he and Alabama comedian Rickey Smiley played in a classic comedy, will make three stops in Alabama on his upcoming “Dark Matter” tour.

Williams will perform in Huntsville’s Propst Arena on Jan. 19. On Feb. 24 he’s scheduled to appear at the BJCC Arena in Birmingham, and on March 22 he has a show at the Mobile Civic Center Arena. Tickets for all three shows are available through Ticketmaster.

Prices start at $59 plus fees in Huntsville and Birmingham; in Huntsville it appears that floor seats are sold out, with scattered seats remaining in the upper balcony. More tickets are available in Birmingham, though that show appears to be well on its way to a sellout as well. As of Tuesday, seats were plentiful for the March show in Mobile, where prices started at $64.90 plus fees.

Williams turned heads last week with an appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast. Williams took issue with something Smiley had previously told Sharpe about the 2002 movie “Friday After Next:” That before getting the role of Santa Claus, he was to play Money Mike, the role filled by Williams.

Williams took issue with that, saying he was among many who’d auditioned for the Money Mike role, and that the auditions wouldn’t have happened if Smiley had been offered the part.

On his own morning show, Smiley responded that he had no reason to lie about the matter. He said Williams had been the better choice for the role, and that while he was saddened by the disagreement, he wished Williams the best and encouraged listeners to attend his shows.

Ice Cube, co-writer and star of the “Friday” series, said via a social media video that Smiley had auditioned for Money Mike, but Smiley and others thought he was a better fit for Santa Claus. Williams turned out to be perfect for the Money Mike part, Cube said, but even there he offered some clarification: “When we saw Katt, when I saw him, I just knew he was perfect for Money Mike. And Katt said he wrote his role, which, I mean, the role was written but he enhanced it.” In short, he said, the film crews shoot the script, then allow some time for comedians to ad-lib. The material coming from Williams was so good that they expanded the role to include more of it.

Roy Wood Jr. opted to stay neutral , comparing himself to a nephew keeping quiet while uncles fight. Not everyone has had the luxury of staying out of it, though: Williams also told Sharpe that Ludacris had gotten his roles in “Fast and Furious” films because of a deal involving Ludacris, Williams and the Illuminati. Ludacris offered a musical rebuttal to the fantastic scenario on social media.
