Cedric The Entertainer and Katt Willia

Did Cedric The Entertainer steal Katt Williams Williams joke?

During an interview with The Morning Hustle radio show on Tuesday, Williams claimed the famed comedian stole one of his lines and used it as the closing joke for his set on the iconic Kings of Comedy Tour

“When it initially happened to me, it crushed me because the comedian was already bigger and more famous than me and he took my closing joke and made it his closing joke on Kings of Comedy,” Katt said. “The reason it hit so bad was that I was in the theater. I paid my money to go see Kings of Comedy and to see my joke being there and not me was about as disrespectful as it gets in our craft and I took it really personally with Cedric The Entertainer at that time.”

The joke in question centers around space exploration. Listen to the full interview.

Cedric took to his Instagram on Thursday in response to Katt Williams joke stealing accusation.

“To all my peoples hitting me about the @kattwilliams commentary, I say no sir !! That joke has roots, tied into so many other of my jokes… To know me is know most of my jokes a very similar animated, characters acted out sense of humor. I’ve had jokes stolen, I’ve had similar premises to others as well, but that joke has DNA thats over 30 yrs old specifically from Me. Cigarette hanging from the lip and all.”

 

 

Cedric and Katt Williams are two of the funniest men ever to do comedy. Whatever the indifference, we hope to see more comedy from both comedians real soon!
