Lots of interest in our post about standup comic Katt Williams's bizarre meltdown during a show at the Wells Fargo Theatre last week.

Among our commenters was someone who witnessed it firsthand, and has some theories about what went wrong and why.

Katt used to be funny. That is why people went to his show. I was there. First off, it started an hour late. Then he told no jokes. Then, the second part, he came out clearly after doing his drugs and was on some other shit. He started rapping, then making weird faces. His own team was trying to get him off stage. So nobody was being disrespectful. People started getting angry after they caught on to what was going on, because we paid a nice chunk of money. So if you were there, u would be upset as well. And he pulled the same stunt last year . And we are even more upset, because we don't get a refund back.... I had loved Katt, too. But the drugs got to him.
