Williams made headlines last week after he revealed on I’m A Celebrity that he used to let men suck his nipples for money when he worked as a ‘shot boy’ in the US.
‘I thought, ‘$20?’ and he was like ‘Deal’. So then I had a line for nipple sucks. You’d buy a shot and then you’d get a chaser,’ he told his fellow campmates, pointing to his nipple, ‘with whipped cream’.
On Friday, footage resurfaced of the comedian’s West Hollywood club days.
The video originated from a Studio 10 interview Williams took part in back in 2015, where he explained that he had used up the money saved from his radio career in Australia in his first 18 months of living in Los Angeles.
But instead of flying home and begging for his radio job back, he stuck with it and opted to do odd jobs.
He explained that his first job was serving shots at a gay bar.

The funnyman revealed that he was only earning $1 from each of the $4 shots, which benefitted the bar owner, but figured out a way he could make more money.
‘It was my first job and I was out of money,’ he explained at the time.
‘So I started off with $2 for a hug, $5 for a photo and $10 for a nipple suck.’
