Katt Williams is an Emmy award-winning actor, comedian, and voiceover performer. He’s known for his stand-up specials The Pimp Chronicles, American Hustle: The Movie, and It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’.

He also had a few recurring TV and film roles, like his role as Bobby Shaw in My Wife and Kids, Money Mike in Friday After Next, as well as starring in the first three seasons of the sketch comedy, Wild ‘n Out.

Being so small on camera, you might be wondering: What’s Katt Williams’ height? Well, read on to find out how tall Katt Williams is, as well as his net worth and current projects.

Katt Williams’ Height, Age, and Early Life

Katt Williams was born Micah Williams on September 2, 1971, in Cincinnati, Ohio, making him 51 years old at the time of writing this post.

Williams is 5’4”, which explains his small stature. The average American male height is 5’9”, so he falls way below that mark.

Unfortunately, Katt Williams didn’t have a stable childhood, as he sought emancipation at the age of 13. He left for Florida on his own and worked as a street vendor to support himself.

Micah Romeo Jenkins-Williams, Williams’ biological son, was born in 1995. He raised him as a single father and went on to adopt seven more children.

None of his previous or current romantic partners are known publicly.

After leaving his hometown, he toured the country performing his routines. He became a regular performer in comedy clubs like The Improv, The Comedy Club, The Ice House, and The Hollywood Park Casino.

He landed his first TV gig when he appeared on BET’s ComicView. In 2005, he went on to star in the first three seasons of Wild ‘n Out, which contributed to his notoriously extravagant humor style.

As for films, he had some mainstream movie roles, even if the part was small. In 2007, he played Harry Beaver in Epic Movie, as well as Lord Have Mercy in Norbit.

Katt Williams also did some voiceover roles in some big projects. He played a stand-up comedian in the 2008 video game Grand Theft Auto IV, where he performed some of his previous material from American Hustle: The Movie.

He also voiced the role of Seamus, a nervous pigeon, in the 2010 movie Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. And on TV, he had a recurring voice role on the animated show, The Boondocks, where he played the role of A Pimp Named Slickback from 2005 to 2008.

Legal Trouble

Sometimes, being wildly talented and famous causes people to lose grip on reality. Sadly, this seems to be the case with Katt Williams, who has had more than a few run-ins with the Law, from 2006 weapon concealment charges to a 2009 arrest for burglary.

Katt Williams might be a small-framed person, but he doesn’t shy away from physical altercations. He faced a 2012 arrest for allegedly assaulting an 18-year-old with a bottle on his tour bus.

He went on to face arrests and charges in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2018. However, he seems to be getting older and wiser, not getting in trouble for the past four years as of writing.


He might be a fireball on stage and on the screen, but Katt Williams’ height doesn’t exceed 5’4”! Hope you learned more about the actor and comedian’s life, as well as his career that spanned more than two decades.
