This new stand-up will serve as the second special to appear from the established comedian on the streaming service and comes after Katt Williams dropped his Great America special in 2018. Katt’s latest special was filmed in January at the Dolby Live Theater in Las Vegas as part of the comic’s “World War III Tour,” and will reportedly focus heavily on conspiracy theories as Katt picks apart some of the most popular ones from the past year.
Williams will step into the director seat for World War III as well, and will also be the project’s executive producer. Aside from the new special, the Cincinnati comedian is also expected to take the stage at the ongoing Netflix Is a Joke Festival, which kicked off on April 28 and goes through May 8.
All eyes were on Dave Chappelle during the festival’s Tuesday run (May 3) when an armed man attempted to tackle him to the ground during his set. The man was beaten up by Chappelle and the venue’s security, and authorities later found he was armed with a knife and a gun.
World War III marks Katt Williams’ 12th comedy special and the second original comedy special on Netflix, including Great America. The special was filmed at Dolby Live in Las Vegas in January 2022.
In the war between truth and lies, there is only one man you can trust. Comedy legend & Emmy Award winner, Katt Williams, returns to deliver the unfiltered truth and hilariously breaks down conspiracy theories in his new comedy special World War III.
Katt Williams’ World War III will premiere on Netflix on May 17th.
