(St. Louis, MO – —– After a nation-wide run of his highly acclaimed 2013-2014 Growth Spurt tour, Katt Williams returns with a brand new tour entitled “Born Again… Again” set to stop at Chaifetz Arena on Friday, February 27 at 8 p.m.

Tickets at $47.50, $59.50, $78 and a limited number of gold circle seats go on sale Friday, November 21, 2014 at 10 a.m. at, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000, Ticketmaster outlets, and at the Chaifetz Arena Box Office. 

Known just as much for his permed hair as he is for his animated performances and quick wit, comedian Williams has been making his mark in Hollywood for over 12 years.  Beginning his career at an age when most teenagers are seeking their driver’s license, Williams quickly discovered that he had a gift for making people laugh.  In 1999, Williams became a presence at popular comedy clubs such as The Improv, The Comedy Club, The Icehouse and had his own room at The Hollywood Park Casino where he had a large, loyal following.  He became somewhat of a staple comedic force on the BET Network, appearing on shows such as Comic View, Rip the Runway, Black Carpet, Rap City, 106 & Park, The BET Awards and even hosting the 1st ever BET Hip Hop Awards in 2006. Williams’ talent extends over multiple mediums. 

Williams is known to most for his breakout role in three seasons of Nick Cannon’s highly-rated MTV improv show, Wild n’ Out and his acting roles in Ice Cube’s Friday After Next and First Sunday.  Throughout his career he has been massively embraced by the hip hop community, appearing in music videos for everyone from Outkast “Roses” and Ludacris “Stand Up & “Number One Spot” to E-40 “One Night Stand” and Lil’ Kim “Shut Up/Lighter’s Up”. 

Williams’ ability to make people laugh is best demonstrated on the stage as a stand-up comic.  His hour long specials include The Pimp Chronicles Part 1 (2005), American Hustle (2007), It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’ (2008), and his Showtime special Kattpacalypse (2012), Nick Cannon’s School Dance (2014) and his most recent HBO special directed by Spike Lee- Priceless: Afterlife (2014).
