Showdown in Motown: Katt Williams vs. Steve Harvey

It’s about to go down between Katt Williams and Steve Harvey:

A new standup comic beef has emerged between Katt Williams and Steve Harvey – mostly on Williams’ part – that is expected to be settled during a head-to-head battle on New Year’s Eve in Detroit.

Instigating from the sideline is fellow comic Jamie Foxx, who joined co-hosts of his Sirius XM FoxxHole radio show on Dec. 19 to comment on the absurdity of Williams calling out Harvey in advance of their Dec. 31 show.

First, Foxx plays a clip of Williams dissing Harvey. “I wanna apologize for what’s gonna happen,” Williams said of the joint comedy gig. “But the second that you get on stage, I need you to understand that that’s your final time as the ‘King of Comedy.’ Water seeks its own level, you can’t stop it playboy. It is what it is, so I hope you’re ready. I hope you got a team of writers. You gonna need about six or seven of ’em….”

Steve Harvey then calls in and says he’s baffled by the whole thing. “I’ve always been cool with Katt. He said in an interview that back in LA, I didn’t know who he was,” Harvey told Foxx and crew. “I mean understand, I didn’t know who he was when I was on the radio in LA. He hadn’t been in any movies or anything, and the brother was just not that known. He was talking about me in the clubs, and I just asked on the radio, whoever Katt Williams is, to call me.

“He called me, we straightened it out. We became friends. We’ve been cool ever since, so I thought.”

On a serious note, Katt Williams came hard, so he better be prepared with some new sh*t. Bossip folk, what’s the business? Is Katt gonna take the crown, or is Steve Harvey gonna put his little ass in time out…forever?

    Katt Williams needs to fall back, Steve will continue to hold the crown.

  • STEFANY

    I personally don’t care for either one, especially Katt Williams, he’s soooo over rated and mildly funny. Katt has a really f-up attitude, I hope he never returns to stage.

  • Joey Boats

    Yo Steve get him!

  • TONE.AYE

    My mans (orange glo) Steve Hightower is gonna pimp slap Money Mike.. The F*ck was he thinking.

    Look who said those guys were the Kings of Comedy anyway? THEM. In the Kings of Comedy movie, Bernie Mack was the only one I even found funny. DL Hugley and Steve Harvey have never gotten a laugh out of me in thier whole stand-up careers. They’re good in sitcoms though. The only ones who could possibly wear the crown of King since Richard Pryor’s retirement are Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock. All four “kings” are a far cry from those two and they ain’t really touching Martin Lawrence either. Kat’s drunk ass ain’t even in the running.

    Personally I think Steve is going to tap that ass. I can’t stand Katt Williams, I don’t think he is funny at all. Katt needs to sit his crazy ass down. He’s already armed Steve with all the new material he needs with his recent cRaZy behavior. If he’s not careful his little feelings could really get hurt.

  • Mrs. Rance

    Oh and how can I forget Dave Chappelle. Them dudes ain’t kings of no dang comedy.

  • Xquisite

    Katt Williams ..no contest..but he didn’t have to start a beef with Steve..but it does make for great ticket sales..

  • Lady Architect

    I’M SORRY BUT IS KATT SERIOUS? HE’S A PRETTY GOOD COMIC, BUT HE’S AN AMATEUR COMPARED TO STEVE HARVEY WHO HAS NOT ONLY DONE THIS FOR YEARS, BUT CAN ALSO DO A FULL SHOW WITHOUT CURSING AND STILL HAVE PEOPLE CRYING. i LIKE THEM BOTH, BUT kATT IS OUT OF HIS LEAGUE ON THIS ONE. DIDN’T HE JUST GO CRAZY RECENTLY?

  • ThatBKChick

    First of all…it’s Karma on Steve. Steve did some shady azz stuff to Bernie Mac (R.I.P.) and I am tired of his ol horse face fake azz…he had the audacity to turn up at Bernie’s funeral and talking all like they were cool!! To let you guys know what Steve did, he called Brad Pitt/George Clooney, at the time they are and were the producers of the Ocean Eleven-Thirtheen Sequels, when Bernie was trying for the part, and told them that basically not to hire Bernie and that he would be better and some other shady azz ish!!! That’s why Bernie moved forward and Steve’s movie career stalemated!!! SMDH!!!

    Katt Williams on the other hand needs medication and mental help. He honestly should not be throwing stones and he know he is not right in the head right now….He got the Dave Chapelle Syndrome and lost his mind for a min….but please STFU Katt!!!

    Hell to the naw!! Katt hanging around with them Dip Set haters too much. Them b*tch made dudes that think that they have to hate on anyone who is a threat to them. I mean that to me is disrespectful for Katt to even come at Steve like that because Steve actually has paved ways for him. He had his on show andhas been in movies for over a decade now so to minimized that because you’ve JUST became hot is immature. I feel like Katt needs help because the Katt I saw in the beginning when he was doing his stand up was a real dude who just told it like it is and didnt hate. Stop hanging round’ all those young/old 40 year old fake rappers Katt. Some people, like Nas said, are in their second childhood and thats a sin.

    LMAO,thats not Steve Harvey body…

    @Mrs Rance

    I agree. I don’t qualify lines that start with, “Black people…” as comedy.

  • Mrs. Rance

    Yeah, I think Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and Dave Chappelle should come out with a movie called The Real Kings of Comedy. Oh yeah, they can’t because each of their individual price tags are higher than DL, Steve and Ced put together. Bernie was too good to even be in that group.

  • Hannibal

    @MRS. RANCE

    I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING U SAID IN THIS POST…

  • quietstorm372

    steve harvey was funnier early in his career, but katt is going to squash him. Tee-tee get steve’s last standup check, because its a wrap. But he’ll at least still have his radio gig.

    I’ll take Steve…Katt cuss too much…

  • shavondenise

    @ ThatBKChick:

    I did hear that Steve was throwing salt in Mac’s game and I also heard Mac hate on Steve’s show saying that it was corny or something. They both had their egos because the stars of The Kings of Comedy and really the only one’s that were funny enough to be on the stage were Steve and Bernie. I think thats when that male ego crap came in. DL even said that he tried to squash the beef between them before Bernie died. There’s alot to that story that we all will never know but thats how Black Hollywood has to be sometimes because the industry only wants one of everything when it comes to Blacks. One actress, one actor, one comedian in everything. Like how many Reese Witherspoon’s are there. A million.

    UMMMM… KAT VS. STEVE = APPLES VS. ORANGES THIS PICTURE OF STEVE IS MORE OFFENSIVE THAN KAT THINKING HE’S A BETTER COMIC, NOW WHO’S BODY THEY DONE PHOTO SHOPPED HIS BODY ONTO. not comedy

  • Tink

  • Crush on Joey B

    oop…head

  • politicker19

    OMG, Steve was never funny…In fact, him and D.L. should’ve never been given the the name ‘Kings’?!? They’re so NOT funny!!

    I thought Kat was corny when he first came out on Nick Cannon’s show…but then I saw him do stand up and couldnt stop laughing!! I think it’s his time and he’s doing the damn thing…but on a sidenote, you dont need to bring others down on your way to the top..he still needs to have respect for goofy Steve…
