Keeping the Pimp Alive 

What does it say about us that the sight of a wide-brimmed leopard-print hat and matching jacket instantly alerts us to the presence of a professional prostitute wrangler? Pimps are as iconic as firemen, and maybe because of this, it's getting harder to make them funny. But taking a bite out of satire is Katt Williams, who brought something special to the management of the world's oldest profession with his portrayal of Money Mike in "Friday After Next." Since then there've been hip-hop albums, not entirely serious, but more musical than, say, Adam Sandler. Williams brings the spirit of the platform-heeled enterprise to the Landmark Theater April 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $42.50. Call 262-8100 or visit www.ticketmaster.com. S
