If you haven’t heard from comedian Katt Williams in a while, then buckle up because he has a lot to say!
In a recent discussion with NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, Williams expresses some of the beef he has with fellow comedians. The conversation took place on a recent episode of Sharpe’s popular podcast, “Club Shay Shay.” Williams has specific words for Cedric the Entertainer, whom he has no love for. He brings back the previous accusation he levied at Cedric the Entertainer about a joke the television actor allegedly stole from him and used on “The Original Kings of Comedy Tour” he did with Steve Harvey, the late Bernie Mac, and D.L. Hughley. The tour took place in 2000 and Katt had no issues rehashing the controversy.
Katt brought up a conversation that Sharpe had in 2022 with Cedric in a previous “Club Shay Shay” episode and how the beef was brought up and Cedric still denied stealing the joke. So, the comedian rehashed the time Cedric was in the audience when he made the joke he allegedly took.
“He thought that I was just a no-name comedian and that he could take this joke and nobody would know,” Williams tells Sharpe. “The issue was that I had already done this particular joke on BET’s ComicView twice. It had done so well on BET’s ComicView that they made it part of the commercial.
“This is not just a random joke, this is my best joke and it’s my last joke and it’s my closing joke. 1998, I’m doing this joke; Cedric comes to The Comedy Store. He watches me in the audience; he comes backstage; he tells me what a great job I did and how much he loves the joke. Two years later, he’s doing that as his last joke on The [Original] Kings of Comedy and he’s doing it verbatim, he just changed my car into a spaceship.”

After viewing the above post, Cedric responded by writing, “Revisionist History, regardless of whatever Katts opinion 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. The ppl I have put on including “Katt in the Hat”. At the Gibson Amphitheater”
Scrolling down a little further in the Instagram post, Cedric, evidently frustrated at this point, added, “And all that tough talk! Is corny af I’m grown ass man. And none of that shit gonna go like you think. You do you and I got this over here..”
