Katt Williams recently spoke about going up against Kevin Hart in a comedic Verzuz battle, but he doesn’t think the Ride Along actor would be much competition.

During a radio interview with Persia Nicole, the comedian stated that Verzuz originated from him. “I started Verzuz,” Williams said. “…The first Verzuz ever promoted was Steve Harvey versus Katt Williams. It was the underground Kings of Comedy Verzuz. …So, we don’t need to ask me if I would have any interest in things that I was the originator of. Comedically beefing is my lane.”

The Friday After Next actor then listed his lengthy resume, which included numerous tours, movie roles and television appearances. He also said that Richard Pryor would have been his only real competition.

“It’s almost cheating for me. I have over 10 specials,” Williams said. “I don’t have to pick but two jokes from each special and I’ve already deaded anyone whose last name isn’t Pryor anyway. …We don’t wanna add 52 movies, we certainly don’t wanna add 11 specials, we certainly don’t wanna add 49 television appearances, we don’t wanna add an Emmy. It’s almost a battle we can’t really afford to be in. …It probably don’t match up the way you think it match up.”

Fans have been discussing a hypothetical battle between the two comedians for months now. Back in April, social media user @comedyHype_ had both men trending on Twitter after he asked who would win an Instagram Live roast contest. One fan replied, “In a roasting battle? Aye man Kevin Hart got some jokes that’ll make you wanna fight. But Katt Williams would make you wanna kill him lol. Katt might obliterate Kevin Lol. 20-20 joke off? Katt 14 Kevin 6.”

Another fan responded, “So, Katt Williams & Kevin Hart are trending over who’s the funniest. Let’s put it like this, Katt Williams is Black people funny & Kevin Hart is white people funny & EVERYBODY knows Black people are funnier than the whites.”

Who do you think would win a Verzuz between Williams and Hart? Check out the interview below.
