This Was Definitely Live

From Katt almost slipping to the usually muffled or silenced audience being active participants, this was undoubtedly a live routine, and sometimes you had to appreciate the chaos. It reminds you that specials don’t need to be heavily edited and perfected; sometimes, getting that live audience feel makes the show notable. After all, comedy is often in response not only to society at large but also to what is said and done by the audience.

The Visual Aides

Whether it is the video of a blind young football player or pictures of various celebrities, Katt Williams’s use of visuals was an odd decision. After all, he is funny enough without the additions, and add in it wasn’t seamlessly included like how Hasan Minhaj formerly did his show, and it just seemed like an odd experiment that should be done when working on material rather than what is meant to be the best version of it.

Playing Up On The Truth Teller Gimmick Past Its Prime

There is no denying that Katt Williams’ Club Shay Shay interview is going to be considered one of the highlights of 2024. Since that went viral, Shannon Sharpe mentions it in nearly every interview, and clips of what Katt Williams said still circulate months later. But, it seems, with his level of fame increasing, Katt wanted to exploit that and expand it into a comedy show.

That’s fine; Chris Rock built hype over being smacked and made a special where the only thing notable about it is his recounting of Will Smith smacking him in front of the world. But, the problem with Katt Williams making him seen as a truth teller into a gimmick is the topics. Him talking about Jamie Foxx’s mysterious illness, Ozempic, and things of that nature, don’t feel fresh. It’s a lot of dated pop culture references.

Heck, even with him dangerously talking about trans women in sports or the blind football player and harping on that last one, you don’t get truth-teller vibes. Now, this isn’t to imply he veered towards being a bully, but it can feel that as good as you know Katt Williams can be, this was more about cashing in while the fire is hot than really presenting the kind of work to remind you why Shannon Sharpe even invited Katt Williams on Club Shay Shay. Never mind why Katt Williams has been in the game so long.

“Woke Foke” feels like when any company gives a flash-in-the-pan artist a deal to capitalize on them being big in the zeitgeist and, like whenever that happens, by the time a fleshed-out product is released, people have already begun to move on, and it makes the work trying to milk that viral moment come off stale. This is why, as much as we enjoy and respect Katt Williams, we must say “Woke Foke” is one of his weakest outputs.
