Katt Williams Back From Retirement After Four Days

Last week the comedian declared he was "kinda done" with show business.

Katt Williams' retirement turned out to be shorter than most people's long weekend.

The troublemaking comedian, who was arrested last week following a bar fight in Seattle, had announced that he was "kinda done" with comedy and threatened to cancel his remaining tour dates. But Williams seems to have had a change of heart, and will be back at work this Friday. 

"Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour," a spokesperson from his management team tells TMZ. "The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward."

Williams has been involved in a long series of "unfortunate events" over the past several years. Most recently, he allegedly slapped an employee at a Target store in Sacramento, led police on a wild goose chase of the California capital and threatened a bar manager with a pool cue in a Seattle drinking hole. He also flicked a cigarette at a woman's eye in the same bar.
