Ooooh They So Sensitive! Comedians Who Had Beef With Eachother
It seems that while comedians have all the confidence to say what’s on their mind, they are also sensitive people. Some comedians take even more offense to what their fellow comedians have to say. These comedians have had feuds other comedians.
Jamie Foxx vs. Howard Stern
Back in 2010 when Howard Stern made snide remarks, meant to be funny, about Gabourey Sidibe’s career, Jamie Foxx didn’t think it was funny. Jamie shot back by calling out Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers, a black woman, saying she and Sidibe had a lot in common. Stern responded by calling Jamie a closet homosexual. After Jamie called him “Coward Stern” the feud fizzled and died out.
David Letterman vs. Jay Leno
These two have never had a friendly relationship. When Jay Leno replaced Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show, Letterman was said to have become a bit bitter. This feud has been so widespread there was a book, entitled “The Late Shift” and subsequently a movie,also called The Late Shift, all about it. Looks like these two are experts at holding grudges.
Katt Williams vs. Steve Harvey
When Katt Williams felt Steve Harvey snubbed him at a store in L. A he took it personal. Williams performed an entire two-hour routine dragging Harvey’s name from one end of the stage to the next. Harvey did take it to heart and responded on his popular radio by saying, “kids these days.” Harvey for the win!
Jamie Foxx vs. Doug Williams
While at a 2003 roast for retired football player Emmit Smith, Foxx obliterated Williams by heckling him during his rost. It was the funniest/hardest situation to watch. Foxx consistently interrupted Williams’ not-at-all funny roast that was more like a washed up routine. Williams said he didn’t take it to heart, and we want to believe that because the humiliation was real.
Arsenio Hall vs. Roseanne Bar
When Arsenio Hall made fat jokes about Roseanne Barr and her then-husband Tom Arnold she didn’t think it was very funny. Arsenio took it even further by showing off pictures of the couple solidifying how fat they were. Roseanne shot back that he was, “America’s first black nerd… a triangle-headed Eddie Murphy lookalike.” Barr could have come harder than that, but we digress.
Jay Leno vs. Conan O’Brien
When Jay Leno retired from The Tonight Show, the show was passed on to Conan O’Brien. A year later Leno changed his mind and wanted the show back and this is where the tension between the two began. Just recently Leno decided to again retire bu this time leaving the late -night throne to Jimmy Fallon. Somehow we think Conan wasn’t falling for that trick again.
He has been accused of stealing jokes from classic comedians and of being a racist. That is the biggest offense in the comic world. He says he isn’t a thief, but he does sample material. He is frequently on the list of most hated comedians.
Kevin Hart vs. Mike Epps
These two are constantly “beefing.” Just recently Mike Epps called Kevin Hart “over-rated” causing Hart to respond by saying he would “crush Epps’ ticket sales by playing the same cities on the same nights as him.” Last year, the two had words via twitter. Epps egged on the tension by saying if Katt Williams was still around Hart wouldn’t exist and Hart followed by saying Epps is less than relevant. The two laughed it off as just comedians having fun.
Chevy Chase vs. Bill Murray
Back in the SNL heyday, loyalty was a major factor. So when Chevy Chase left for other endeavors and eventually returned the tensions were high. High enough that a small brawl ensued between Chase and fellow SNL star Billy Crystl. Crystal makes light of the situation by saying, “It was really a Hollywood fight. Chevy is a big man, I’m not a small guy, and we were separated by my brother Brian [Doyle-Murray], who comes up to my chest.” The two later starred in Caddyshack.
Eddie Murphy vs. David Spade
After leaving Saturday Night Live, Eddie Murphy felt a few of his former co-stars were not very friendly. “They were sh**ty to me on Saturday Night Live a couple of times after I’d left the show,” he said. “They said some sh**ty things.” David Spade ws one of those people. Spade had done a sketch showing a picture of Murphy around the time of Vampire In Brooklyn saying “Look, children, a falling star.” Murphy didn’t take to well to the sketch, “I made a stink about it, it became part of the folklore. What really irritated me about it at the time was that it was a career shot.I felt sh**ty about it for years, but now, I don’t [care].”
