Katt Williams slams Cedric the Entertainer for reportedly appropriating joke

Katt Williams is lashing out at Cedric the Entertainer for reportedly pilfering one of his top-notch jokes.

During Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast, Williams censured his fellow comedian for refuting the joke theft during the same show in 2022.

“He believed that I was just an unknown comedian and that he could appropriate this joke without anyone noticing,” Williams expressed. “The problem was that I had previously delivered this specific joke on BET’s ComicView twice. It had performed so admirably on BET’s ComicView that they featured it in the commercial.”

“This isn’t just a casual joke — this is my most excellent joke and it’s my ultimate joke and it’s my concluding joke,” Williams persisted. “Back in 1998, I’m performing this joke, it’s on ComicView. Cedric visits The Comedy Store. He observes me in the audience, he comes backstage. He commends me for an excellent job and how much he loves the joke. Two years later, he’s delivering it as his closing joke on the [Original] Kings of Comedy and he’s delivering it verbatim, he’s simply transformed my car into a spaceship.”

Cedric replied in the comments section of a Club Shay Shay Instagram post. “Revisionist History, regardless of whatever Katts opinion,” he wrote. “My career can’t be reduced to One Joke Katt Williams claims as his. I been over 40 movies, my specials and brand speaks volumes for I am.”

“And all that tough talk! Is corny af I’m grown ass man,” he wrote in another comment. “And none of that s— gonna go like you think. You do you and I got this over here..”

Representatives for Williams and Cedric the Entertainer did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

Cedric had previously featured on Club Shay Shay in 2022 and addressed Katt’s accusations of plagiarism at that time. “I’ve seen this guy [Williams] 30 times,” he stated. “Like, dog, if you literally was that upset about it, like why didn’t you say nothing, like that don’t even make sense,” Cedric expressed. “This is some internet shit, and that’s all I can say, so, you know, when I responded to him, he didn’t respond back to me and I left it at that.”

However, Williams alleges that Cedric had already acknowledged appropriating his material. “Him and Steve [Harvey] had already apologized for me so I gave him a pass for a decade,” he disclosed on the podcast. “Are you kidding me? Why would you downplay me like that? Why did I give you a pass if you were just going to lie?”

In another part of the episode, Williams took jabs at Steve Harvey. “This is like Steve Harvey telling people he used to be homeless. That’s my story, that’s not his story. Steve Harvey was never homeless,” he declared. “25 years ago he was making $3,000 a show in cash and doing five shows a week… they just tell the stories.”

“Who cares that they composed a plaque card for you to host Family Feud?” Williams later remarked. “Like, you’re successful because we’re surprised you can talk for a living and it’s entertaining that you going to say some funny country things, but not a writer.”
