Micah S. Katt Williams (born September 2, 1971) is an American comedian, rapper, and actor. He is best known for his role as Money Mike in Friday After Next. He is also known as his stint on Nick Cannon’s MTV improv show, Wild 'n Out and for playing the fictional character "Bobby Shaw" on the program My Wife and Kids.

Williams was born September 2, 1971 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and raised in Dayton, the son of a former member of the Black Panther Party. He attended Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School but was asked to leave and then attended Colonel White High School. On the Howard Stern show, he stated that after he left Ohio, at the age of 13, he was homeless for four years in Coconut Grove, Miami, where he lived in a park. He sold magazines and books door to door and robbed cars for radios. As a means to get into a nightclub while underage, he noticed that they weren’t checking ID’s in the line for comics and proceeded to enter the club through that entrance. He was called on stage where he did a five-minute improv to an enthusiastic crowd. “I was so nervous but everyone laughed and thought I was funny. After that, I was opened up to the wonderful world of comedy... Improv is where a comic really gets to shine, if he is good. That’s as close as a comedian can get to the playoffs."

Williams started being a comedian in his neighborhood Avondale most notably appearing on BET Comic View. He has also played supporting characters in movies such as "First Sunday", "Norbit", but is probably more widely recognized for his character "Money Mike" in the movie "Friday After Next". He has also provided numerous skits and video appearances for artists such as The Game, Ludacris, T.I., E-40, Outkast, Lil’ Kim, Lyfe Jennings, Cyrano Williams, Nick Cannon, DJ Drama, Lil' Scrappy, Lil Jon, Oprah Winfrey, and others. He was a cast member on Wild 'n Out for several seasons. He also voices "A Pimp Named Slickback" on the Adult Swim's "The Boondocks". He has rapped under the "Money Mike" name for songs by artists like The Game, Baby Bash, and Suga Free. He also plays himself as an onstage comedian in Grand Theft Auto IV. Williams has also appeared in a few episodes in My Wife and Kids as "Bobby Shaw".
