It appears a comedy beef has been reignited after Katt Williams effectively drew a line in the sand.

Earlier today (Jan. 3), the Friday After Next actor appeared on the latest episode of Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast, and he used the time to fire off shots at several of his peers, including Steve Harvey, Ricky Smiley, Faizon Love, and Michael Blackson. From the beginning of the nearly three-hour clip, Williams’ biggest target was Cedric Kyles, better known by his fans as Cedric The Entertainer, who he accused of stealing one of his jokes.

“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,” Williams stated, which was largely in response to Ced’s own appearance on “Club Shay Shay” back in January 2023. “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.”

Not long after the episode aired, Cedric took to the show’s Instagram account to respond, calling Williams’ statement “revisionist history.”

“Regardless of whatever Katt’s opinion [is], my career can’t be reduced to one joke Katt Williams claims as his,” the Barbershop star declared in the comments section. “[I’ve] been [in] over 40 movies [and] my specials and brand speaks volumes for [who] I am.” Ced also claimed that he put “Katt in the Hat” on, referring to a show at the now-defunct Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles.

The original king of comedy continued by addressing Williams’ more aggressive jabs, including a physical threat in the event they crossed paths in the future. “And all that tough talk is corny [as f**k]! I’m grown a** man,” he added. “And none of that s**t gonna go like you think. You do you and I got this over here.”
