Katt Williams compared Cedric the Entertainer to a "walrus" during his heated rant.

Katt Williams spoke about his issues with Cedric The Entertainer and Steve Harvey during his recent sit-down with Shannon Sharpe on Club Shay Shay. He explained that Cedric stole one of his jokes for the 2000 comedy special, The Original Kings of Comedy. Cedric previously addressed the allegations during a conversation with Sharpe in January 2023. At the time, he labeled the idea "ridiculous."

When asked about those remarks, Williams said: “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.”

He continued: “This is not just a random joke, this is my best joke…it’s my closing joke. 1998, I’m doing this joke…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.” From there, Williams explained that Cedric and Harvey already apologized to him, which is why he gave them a “pass” until now. “Why would you downplay me like that?” he asked. “Why would I give you a pass If you were just gon’ lie?”
