Katt Williams Was "Crushed" After Cedric The Entertainer Allegedly Stole His Joke

"Back in 2000, comedy fans were thrilled when the Kings of Comedy hit theaters. Steve Harvey, Bernie Mac, D.L. Hughley, and Cedric The Entertainer all joined together for a stand-up routine that has gone down in comedy history, but Katt Williams recently revealed that he had a bone to pick with one of his fellow comedians.

During the film, Cedric closes out his routine with a joke about having to park a large spaceship Cadillac. In an interview with The Morning Hustle, Williams revealed that the joke was originally his and he was "crushed" when he saw Cedric perform it on the big screen.


"Well, when it initially happened to me, it crushed me just 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," said Williams. "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."

"Now, since then, I've done enough work with ten comedy specials. You either have to write your own jokes or you're telling a variation of my joke, whether you acknowledge it or not." Katt Williams added that as artists, you're either "originally creating or you are borrowing bits and pieces." When asking if he ever confronted Cedric about the incident, Williams said he hadn't addressed it.

ďIím not that type of comedian. Iím going in your mouth where the joke is when you steal my jokes, and I have a reputation in this industry that if you steal my joke, youíre gonna be missing a tooth or two... I donít play like that.Ē

Check out Williams's interview below and the joke in question from Kings of Comedy above."

How can Cedric steal a joke from someone else that wrote it for you? D'militant wrote jokes for Kat ever since his first standup taking other people's bits like Corey Holcomb, Mark Curry, JB Smoove etc. Kat wasn't original from jump, just packaged together for Hollywood

Thats wild

I do know back in the day though Ced and Steve Harvey used to steal tons of jokes...Specially Steve in the 90s...Steve Harvey in the 90s used to steal jokes from Arnez J and tons of other black comedians that weren't getting noticed as much as he was.

I remember when he stole the whole bit about the old lady next door with the big underwear hanging from the clothesline and how they would go swing in the bloomers like it was the playground


Steve was even stealing jokes Mark Curry told on the Hangin with Mr. Cooper sitcom

I think cuz heís paid for it. Itís like if a rapper writes a song for someone for $$$$ and then sells the same verse.

Kat said it was originally hisÖ.. not ORIGINAL by him. weíve seen these types of situations

Every comedian has a writing team... The comedians themselves are apart of that writing team. If a comedian stole all the jokes from Eddie Murphy's Raw and performed it would you be ok with it because "Eddie didn't write the jokes" y'all dudes be trying to get deep for no reason at all.

Do you know how long Katt has been doing standup? Looong Before pimp Chronicles and I know where you got that d'militant sh*t from. Never heard anyone say Katt wasn't an original comic. You don't even hear variations of his jokes.

I always wondered if he stole Eddie Griffin's joke. Their sh*t was real similar.

These entertainers steal material from each other all the time. That episode of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air when Ashley had that issue with the bully and Will told her to self wolf tickets while saying, "Back up, back up! Just mind your business" was taken from Eddie Murphy.

Comedians take from each other all the time. They take from regular people too. It's the same as a weed carrier jokingly saying a line and his rapper friend using it.

I've seen comedians steal jokes and not execute it right. If it's funny, it's funny. Not gonna go into the rabbit hole of who joke is it really.

Kevin Hart's entire biography is stories stolen from C-list comedians I grew up watching
