Katt Williams has struck again. Not with his fists, but by severely disappointing fans. The volatile comedian was a no-show for yet another performance this past Saturday in Kansas City. Cancellation of the set was announced just 15 minutes before Williams was scheduled to start. 

The crowd wasn’t given any reason for canceled show. However, at this point, for anyone purchasing a ticket to see the combustible funnyman’s stand-up, a no-show should be expected. Last week, Williams didn't show for concerts in Houston and New Orleans.

He did appear for his November 30 show in Seattle, but Williams ended up whipping a fan with a microphone. The victim, named Carlos Casto-Lino, has since filed a $250,000 lawsuit against Williams and the Paramount Theater. He claims the comedian gave him a concussion and left him with contusions on his head.

Now, if it seems the troubled comic is going nuts, his friend and manager, Suge Knight, has a perfectly good explanation for his recent troubles: he's just a really sensitive man with a bad temper…who gets himself into bad situations.

"People test him because he's small,” Knight explained, “and the best comedian of all time."

Suge said that since fans forget Williams is a real person with real feelings, he lashes out as a result, especially when people mock him on the street, making jokes about his hair and calling him short.

"Things like that happen to Katt all the time,” Knight concluded, “where people start with him. He just don't take no s***."
