Katt Williams to Wheelchair Fan:

HERE'S $1,000 CASH

... Now Feel Better

Katt Williams gave $1,000 in CASH (and a free signed note) to a wheelchair-bound woman following a recent performance ... after learning she's in bad need of a kidney transplant, TMZ has learned. 

The comic had just wrapped a show in Boston on Sunday when a member of his security team noticed the woman crying in the audience.

The woman insisted she was leaking "tears of joy" ... after laughing for the first time since doctors told her she's in desperate need of a new kidney.

The security team brought the woman backstage to meet with Katt -- and he was so moved by her story, he excused himself from the room ... only to reappear moments later with a folded up sheet of paper.

When the woman opened up the bindle, she was shocked to find ten 100 DOLLAR BILLS ... along with a note that read, "God never leaves."

Then came more tears of joy.

TMZ spoke to the woman who says the gift was an "awesome surprise" ... because, at first, she thought Katt's package was full of weed.

Given his history, ya can't really blame her.

after the fame and all the money in this world
what's next for us as humans to feel alive and settled..? none of those things necessarily bring true fulfillment.. if anyone has reached there, they know exactly what I'm talking about.......
the only true joy in life is giving, but doing so willingly.. its such a spiritual high, it takes you to another dimension....... the misconception is you have to be rich to give back...nope, volunteering means just as much...helping humanity and leaving a positive legacy that will be remembered long after you're gone.....isn't that the point..!

The whole "I thought it was weed" comment seems unneccessary.

An organ transplant costs over $100,000. She can enjoy the money, but that won't be enough for an operation. People shouldn't be taking organs from other people anyway. They usually fail after a short time.


I wonder what he said that was so funny. He seems like a mean miserable little guy from what I have seen in the news. He did say the Illuminati was out to get him though, so some of that might be not accurate.

I think Katt is a good guy along with being a great comedian. He just gets a little too crazy here and there.

Wonder if he would have done that for a white woman. Then again, no white people would be paying good money to see an imbecile like Katt Williams.
