Teary-Eyed Katt Williams Says First Emmy The Hardest To Win Back In A Dice Game
Hoping his award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series would serve as a building block to more fulfilling gambling opportunities, Katt Williams broke into tears during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” Monday, saying that the first Emmy award is always the hardest to win back in a dice game.
“There’s not a lot of people who come from where I came from—down 50 stacks, trying to hit on a 12—that end up winning their Emmy back. After you win those second and third Emmys, it’s easy to double down and get your first trophy back from those trifling ass kids,” said the 47-year-old stand-up comedian.
Williams, who won the award for playing the titular character in Atlanta’s “Alligator Man” episode, tearfully recalled his audition process. “I knew it was meant to be, ‘cause I had just bought a crocodile the night before I read for the part. I brought him into the audition room with me and the rest is history,” Williams told “Breakfast Club” hosts DJ Envy, Charlemagne Tha God, and Angela Yee, while dealing them into a game of spades.
“You can’t be afraid to bet on yourself—the odds for me winning that Emmy were plus-300 and I took that deal. Sure, I lost the trophy later that night, but scared money don’t make money, baby.”
At press time, several Atlanta crew members had taken to social media to criticize Katt Williams for pawning their tickets to the Emmys after party.
