About the Performer

Pete Davidson has established himself as one of today’s most sought-after comedians and is making a name for himself on both the big and small screen. He is currently the youngest cast member on Saturday Night Live and the first cast member to be born in the 1990s. From the "Weekend Update" desk, where he offers his unique take on everything from living at home with his mom to current events, to viral comedy pieces such as those featuring his recurring character Chad, Davidson has delivered many memorable moments on the show.
He made his Netflix comedy special debut in early 2020 with Pete Davidson: Alive from New York. Most recently, Davidson starred in Judd Apatow’s feature film The King of Staten Island, which Davidson produced and cowrote alongside Apatow. The film, which Peter Travers ( Rolling Stone) called "one of the year’s best movies" and proclaimed Davidson shows "a real actor’s gift for using humor and nuance," was released in 2020 and became the number-one best-selling title on VOD across all available platforms.
Upcoming for film, Davidson is set to star in James Gunn’s "The Suicide Squad", to be released in 2021. Additionally, it was recently announced that Davidson and SNL castmate Colin Jost will headline Universal Pictures’ upcoming wedding comedy Worst Man.
Davidson starred in Jason Orley’s HULU original film, Big Time Adolescence, which Richard Lawson ( Vanity Fair) called "a smashing performance." Other film credits include Jeff Tremaine’s The Dirt, Claire Scanlon’s Set It Up, Adam Shankman’s What Men Want, John Turturro’s The Jesus Rolls, and Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck. Davidson shot his first one-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central in 2016 and was named one of Forbes’s 2016 "30 Under 30." He was previously named one of Variety’s Top 10 Comics to watch in 2014.

This was a bit, right? It’s a joke. Otherwise....

Can you give something zero stars on this app?
Maybe some stars need a screen before them. Then the ACTOR!!!!!....ahem, begins. Terrible. Do better, I always try...at the least.

Your fan...

I got 8 episodes in and just couldn’t anymore.

I wanted to like this one as I’ve been patiently waiting for the series since the teaser uploaded . The central character Bren, her constant rambling & annoying personality is just nails on chalkboards
