“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,” 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.”
Cedric got wind of the viral interview clip and took to Instagram to offer his side of the story. The popular comedian denied taking Katt’s material, saying that the joke in question has deep roots to his own history as a stand-up comic.
