More About the Author

Darryl Littleton began his comedy career writing sketches for "The Tom Joyner Morning Show" on CBS Radio. During his tenure there, he became a regular at the world famous, Comedy Store and adopted the stage name, "D'Militant" for his slicing and incisive social and political commentary.

Darryl's crackling wit won him respect and admiration from the industry's top comics, among them D. L. Hughley, who tapped Darryl to be his exclusive writer during his years as host of BET's "Comic View". Darryl's talent was immediately recognized, and he was hired as writer/producer for the show, where he penned material for Cedric the Entertainer, Sommore and Don DC Curry.

Darryl's comedic talents also landed him in front of the camera, where he guest starred on Robert Townsend's WB sitcom, "The Parent Hood" and was a recurring performer on Townsend's variety show "Townsend Television" for Fox. Darryl also appeared on "The Apollo Comedy Hour", "Uptown Comedy Club", HBO's "Def Comedy Jam", Comedy Central's "Make Me Laugh", Telemundo's "Loco Comedy Jam", Byron Allen's "Comic's Unleashed" and ABC's "America's Funniest People"; he was the Grand Prize Winner.

Darryl has also toured the world as a stand-up comedian, working with such luminaries as Chris Rock, Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Earthquake, Cedric the Entertainer, Dick Gregory, Mike Epps, John Witherspoon, Reynaldo Rey, Paul Mooney, Sherri Shepherd, and Robert Townsend.

In 2006 he added to his accolades when he won the prestigious Bay Area Black Comedy Competition's on its 20th Anniversary. That same year Darryl was added to National Public Radio's list of contributing commentators immediately following the release of his first book, "Black Comedians on Black Comedy" chronicling the history of African-American comedy featuring interviews with 125 of the industry's biggest stars. This prestigious work is a mainstay in libraries throughout the country and allowed Darryl to produce it along with award winning director Robert Townsend as a full length documentary, entitled, "Why We Laugh", which made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and Showtime in February 2010.

The comedian / author is the first African- American on the advisory board of the Comedy Hall of Fame and served as script supervisor, touring host and personal writer for mega-star, Katt Williams. Darryl's own critically acclaimed comedy CD, "Am I Lying?!" is in stores and online. His second book, "Pimp Down: The Rise & Fall of Katt Williams" has been optioned for a theatrical film and his third, "Forefathers", the story of the American Revolution told from a black perspective is being adapted for the big screen. Darryl's book entitled, "Comediennes: Laugh Be a Lady" was released in the Fall 2012.

What famous talk show co-host almost took a piece of that Kitt Katt bar? Why does Katt never smile in his pictures? HOW did Katt live BEFORE he rose to fame? WHY and HOW did he almost fall headfirst into his own "trick" bag? WOW!!
These questions and more can be answered when you pick up "PIMP DOWN' The Rise And Fall of Katt Williams. I promise..You won't be able to put it down until the end. Darryl Littleton chronicles his time with the temperamental star with respect, dignity and more than enough professional courtesy to leave you understanding what happens when a self proclaimed comedy pimp becomes his own celebrity whore. It's a great read and a rare insight that could ONLY be told by someone who lives and loves the life.

It is an okay book and a quick read. Funny tid bits...Katt Williams has no REAL teeth and has bad taste in women/prefers ugly women. The only real negative is some information will not necessarily be new information to those that have kept up with Katt Williams' exploits via internet blogs over the years.
However, given the TIMING of this books publishing and Katt's recent fiasco over his Hispanic themed tyrade at a performance, it will bring new fans/critics up to speed on what he has done in the past....

I got this book and thought that I didn't receive the real thing. It looks like someone took it to the copy shop to duplicate it. There is no title on the binding of the book, no copy write and the picture on the front is cut off. With a little research, I found that the book is produced by an indy publishing company. I like the idea of what the author is able to do, but it does not look very professional.
