A compilation of the very best comedy rivalries and feuds which gave us the funniest insults and wittiest comebacks.
Sam Kinison VS Andrew Dice Clay
Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Kinison had a major public feud during the late 80s and early 90s. They were the two biggest comedians at the time with similar acts that featured vulgarity and profanity. However, Kinison accused Dice of stealing his jokes.
Louis CK VS Denis Leary
“Asshole” is a song by comedian Denis Leary from his album No Cure for Cancer. In an appearance on The Opie and Anthony Show, Louis CK claimed that Leary stole his routine and turned into a hit song. Leary later disputed the claim, asserting that he co-wrote the song with Chris Phillips.
Eddie Murphy VS Bill Cosby
Eddie Murphy Raw is a 1987 stand-up comedy special, during which Murphy recounted a phone call from Bill Cosby chastising him for using profanity on stage. The bit became the centerpiece of the hugely successful film. Cosby responded by calling Murphy a liar even though he didn’t deny the phone call.
Richard Pryor VS Chevy Chase
In 1977, Richard Pryor and Chevy Chase both went on the Tonight Show to plug their respective TV specials, airing back-to-back on NBC the following night.
NBC’s excitement and the public’s anticipation over Pryor’s looming special were unprecedented. During the interview, Chase’s interruptive taunts from the sidelines irritated Pryor to the point of delivering the memorable blow, “I don’t like Chase.”
Russell Brand VS Chelsea Handler
It’s safe to say Russell Brand & Chelsea Handler share a mutual dislike of one other. Brand’s 2009 guest appearance on Chelsea Lately ignited a hilarious passive aggressive war of insults and comebacks.
Dave Chappelle VS Key and Peele
Since returning from his hiatus, Dave Chappelle has taken a series of shots at the stars of Comedy Central sketch comedy show, Key and Peele, most recently at the Roots Picnic Festival in 2016.
He reportedly said about Key & Peele: “Put some respect on my name. Y’all don’t know what I’ve been through, watching Key & Peele do my show the last five fucking years.”
