Katt Williams Calls Out Cedric The Entertainer, Steve Harvey, Kevin Hart & More In Fiery Interview

Katt Williams has launched a scathing attack on his fellow comedic legends. During a recent interview, the legendary comedian singled out Cedric The Entertainer, Steve Harvey, Kevin Hart, and Rickey Smiley.

In an interview on the Club Shay Shay podcast released on Jan. 3, Williams expressed his frustration about Cedric The Entertainer allegedly stealing one of his jokes from the past.

Williams claimed that Cedric believed he could steal the joke since Williams was relatively unknown at the time.

“He thought that I was just a no-name comedian, and that he could take this joke and nobody would know. The issue was that I had already done this particular joke on BET’s ComicView twice. It had done so well… that they made it part of the commercial,” Williams stated.

Williams also accused Cedric of copying his best joke, which Cedric later performed on The Original Kings of Comedy special, with only minor changes.

Cedric The Entertainer Responds

Cedric The Entertainer later responded to Williams on Instagram, defending his career and brand, and dismissing Williams’ claims.

Katt Williams also accused Steve Harvey of being involved in the joke Cedric allegedly stole, suggesting that Harvey had copied a shared joke originally crafted with comedian Mark Curry.

Additionally, Williams targeted Rickey Smiley, debunking Smiley’s claims that he was originally cast as Money Mike in the movie Friday After Next. Williams accused Smiley of lying and criticized his acting skills, questioning why Smiley had not been offered significant movie roles in recent years.

Unsurprisingly, Kevin Hart also found himself in Williams’ line of fire, with Williams referring to Hart as an “industry plant,” suggesting that Hart’s rise to fame lacked the typical long underground career associated with successful comedians.

In other news about Cedric The Entertainer, he recently teamed up with Houston rapper Trae The Truth by delivering blankets, jackets, and coats to the homeless shortly before New Years Day. Local media was there to capture the kind gesture from Trae and Cedric.

According to a leaked video from 2018, rapper Kanye West criticized Cardi B, labeling her as an industry plant. He also expressed frustration over the lack of appreciation for his work producing songs for artists such as Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor.
