Katt Williams in Omaha (It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’ Tour) – Hot Wings, Tornados, and Pimp Swag

(Don’t be fooled by how tall Katt Williams looks in this shot.)

If you were up in the O (or anywhere in the 402, really), you probably know that we had one fuckin’ beast of a tornado (actually, tornados) rippin’ shit up everywhere. It got pitch black at about 7 o’ clock and it was rainin’ and hailin’ and just having a general clusterfuck of dangerously shitty weather.

As it happens, I was on my way to the Katt Williams show up in the Music Hall at the Omaha Civic Center Auditorium when I stopped off at a KFC for some hot wings and the tornadoes hit and the employees escorted me and my dad into the bathroom to finish our food in a windowless room.

We ended up being in KFC (we left the bathroom after a few minutes) for almost two hours waiting for the storm to pass us (it eventually did – you probably heard how it killed a quarter dozen boy scouts and injured 40 more up in some camp north of Omaha), missing the 8 o’ clock scheduled start time for Katt’s show by almost an hour. It worked out though – KFC gave me a free 20-piece bucket of hot wings. Score!

So, during a quick break in the storm, we try to get down to the Civic Center, but it picked up again, so we had to pull into a Walgreens for further shelter.

We finally got there at around 9:20, only to be informed that the show had started right on schedule, which has got to be some sort of health code violation.

Anyway, we managed to trade our 8 o’ clock tickets in for the 11 o’ clock show.

We showed up at 10 on the dot and had to wait an entire hour in the cramped, overflowing little area right inside the doors (Katt didn’t finish his show until around 10:40) for a while. After some nachos and Sierra Mist, the opening acts came out, and they were all pretty good except for this one sort of fat lady who was just plain not funny.

Katt came on around 12:30 or one, and he stole the show from the overly stellar opening acts with a lot of hilarious stories, racial jokes, political jokes, and prop comedy with the stool that seems to be present at every comedy show ever.

Anyway, by the time it was all said and done and we filed out, my face was throbbing with pain from all the laughing.

I got back to the apartment around 3 o’ clock, but it was definitely worth it.

I highly recommend you go see a local leg of his It’s Pimpin’, Pimpin’ tour.

Sorry I didn’t include a  lot of the jokes that were told, but you can’t very well capture the magic of it by reading it. You’ll have to go see it.

4/5 stars

    I’m glad I caught his show as well as I checked it out in DC. I had seen a lot of it on YouTube which I shouldn’t have done but oh well. I purchased 5th row tickets the day of the show. Any closer and all the floor jokes would have been missed. Not because Katt is so short, it’s because the stage was so HIGH. And Katt might have been too but that’s another story…

    One for the record book no doubt. Never do front rows prior to the number 4. AHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!

    Lucky you, then, I was in… shit, probably row 40-ish.

    That doesn’t seem too bad if you had those HUGE screens on the sides of the stage. Stop by my Blog and read my review. I managed to get a couple pics at the Baltimore show even though I never made it inside. And to think I was not going to go because I didn’t think he was THAT good this time out. Pimp Chronicles will ALWAYS the absolute best followed by him live from his hometown. I’m guessing you saw those 2 shows… DVD…. DVD rip… something?!?!

    We didn’t have any huge screens, just the stage.

    I just downloaded Pimp Chronicles Part I yesterday and I loved it, but I thought it wasn’t as good as the It’s Pimpin Pimpin show. Still great, though.
