Los Angeles, California, October 19, 2007 – Salient Media and Vivendi Visual Entertainment bring back one of the country’s hottest comedians, Katt Williams (The Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1) to DVD on November 20 in Katt Williams: American Hustle (The Movie).
Salient Media is releasing this film theatrically in the top 15 markets October 30 for an exclusive two week limited engagement run.
“Katt is one most electrifying comedians working today,” said Gary Binkow, CEO of Salient Media and producer of Katt Williams: American Hustle. “This movie has it all: it’s a road picture, it’s got stand-up, and most importantly it’s absolutely hilarious from start to finish.”
Katt Williams: American Hustle features lots of added bonus features including a hysterical blooper reel and extended scenes. People who purchase the DVD can also receive custom voicemail greetings from Katt Williams at KushMobile.com.
Katt Williams recently co-starred with Eddie Murphy in the comedy Norbit and stars in Sony’s upcoming theatrical release First Sunday (January ’08). Katt was recently hailed by Rolling Stone Magazine as “the next Richard Pryor.” He has two successful stand-up DVDs already under his belt including Katt Williams Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1 and Katt Williams Live. Katt’s HBO Comedy special of 2007 The Pimp Chronicles Pt 1 was HBO’s highest rated comedy special and one of the year’s hottest selling comedy DVDs.
One of the country’s hottest comedians, Katt Williams (Pimp Chronicles pt. 1) is back in his highly-anticipated theatrical comedy Katt Williams: American Hustle
Katt scores with his flashy street attitude in a hilarious story about returning to his roots. Katt is offered the opportunity to become a major Hollywood player. But there’s a catch – he has to sell out by appearing in a musical penguin movie. Instead he ditches Hollywood, rounds up his crew of Luenell (Borat), Red Grant and Melanie Comarcho and hits the road in a wild cross-country comedy tour that will leave you in hysterics at every stop.
Running Time: 92 minutes
