[video] “The Obama Effect” (starring Katt Williams, Charles S. Dutton, Meagan Good) Trailer

A friend told me about this a couple of days ago and I had no idea what she was talking about. Trailer below.

“The Obama Effect” starring Katt Williams, Charles S. Dutton, Meagan Good, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Emilio Rivera, Glynn Turman and Zab Judah.

In the beginning of the 21st century, no one ever thought that an African-American would become the first black President of the United States. But it happened, and an entire country celebrated the exceptional efforts pulled off by citizens ready for sweeping change. But this change didn’t come without effort. It required a unification of all people from all races and nationalities, which is what “The Obama Effect” is about.

This film centers around a middle-aged man (Charles S. Dutton) who is faced with some difficult life questions after having a heart attack. Attempting to get back on track with his life, he takes on the Obama campaign with full force in an effort to fight for something he believes in. In the end, he not only learns that putting effort into something can yield unexpected results, but that fighting for something you believe in, including yourself, is what life is all about.

It was unclear Monday morning if Williams had an attorney.

[video] Another Comedian Bites the Dust: Katt Williams Says He Is Retiring?

What is it in the comedian’s psyche that always seem to pop up when they are at the top of their game. I have spoken with a up and coming comedian and he told me that it takes 10 years to get good and 15 to be great. Katt says in this clip he has been doing standup for 18 years and he has had enough.
He definitely filled the void left by Dave Chapelle and to hear him talk of retirement is shocking and sad. Another great one bites the dust.
