Even a standup comedian can use a good prop, and Katt Williams had one of the best — a briefcase stuffed with cash.

While he cracked jokes at the Laugh Factory on Sunday night, the comedian with a taste for fedoras and wide lapels worked the audience, handing out $100 bills to everybody. In all, the comedian handed out about $29,000, Laugh Factory owner Jamie said.

“You should have seen it,” Masada said. “Some people were crying. They came to see the show and they got $100.”

Williams’ manager didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail Tuesday, but Masada said the comedian told the audience he hadn’t forgotten his roots and wanted to thank his loyal audience.

Williams appeared with Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan in this year’s “First Sunday.” He has hosted BET’s annual Hip Hop Awards since its first broadcast in 2006.
