Actor and comedian Peter Michael Davidson was born in the United States on November 16, 1993. For eight seasons, from 2014 to 2022, he was a cast member of the NBC late-night sketch comedy program Saturday Night Live (SNL).
Early in the decade of the 2010s, Davidson made his acting debut in small-scale guest appearances on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Friends of the People, Guy Code, and Wild ‘n Out. A New York firefighter named Scott Matthew Davidson passed away in the World Trade Center in 2001 as a result of the September 11 attacks.
In the 2010s, Davidson made appearances in a variety of films and television programs in addition to SNL. In 2016, he released Pete Davidson: SMD, his debut comedy special. Pete Davidson: Alive from New York, his second special, was released in 2020.
In the 2019 comedy film Big Time Adolescence, Davidson both appeared in and executive produced. He co-wrote and starred in the semi-autobiographical comedy-drama movie The King of Staten Island the following year. He was nominated for a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Comedy Movie Star in 2020, among other honors. Beginning in the early 2020s, Davidson started appearing in more movies, such as Marmaduke, The Suicide Squad, and Bodies, Bodies, Bodies (2022).
The son of Amy (née Waters) and Scott Matthew Davidson, Peter Michael Davidson was born on November 16, 1993, in the Staten Island neighborhood of New York City. His father was a New York firefighter who lost his life protecting others on 9/11. Just before the Marriott World Trade Center fell, he was last seen sprinting up the stairs.
St. Clare’s Catholic Church in Great Kills, Staten Island, hosted his Requiem Mass. When Davidson was seven years old, the loss had a significant impact on him. He described it as “overwhelming” and claimed that as a result of the trauma, he later misbehaved in school, at one point ripping out all of his hair until he was completely bald.
On the morning radio show The Breakfast Club in October 2016, he admitted that he had suicidal thoughts when he was younger and that Kid Cudi’s music had saved his life.
With some distant German, Irish, and Italian ancestry, Davidson’s father primarily had Jewish ancestry. His mother has some distant German ancestry but primarily is of Irish descent.
He was reared a Catholic and has a sister named Casey. Before transferring to Brooklyn’s Xaverian High School and earning his diploma there in 2011, Davidson attended St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School, Tottenville High School, and St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School.
He attended at Brooklyn Heights’ St. Francis College after graduating from high school. Davidson made the decision to focus solely on a comedy career after one semester. At the age of sixteen, in a Staten Island bowling alley, a group of friends who were aware of his desire to perform stand-up comedy dared him to take the stage.
In 2022, What Will Pete Davidson’s Net Worth Be?
Pete Davidson has a $8 million net worth, claims Celebrity Net Worth. Even while this is a considerable sum for anyone, the fact that he is dating a true millionaire dwarfs it all. Through his comedy tours, his employment at SNL, and his roles in films and television, Davidson has made a living.
The use of portions of Davidson’s life that have been compared to “a sequence of terrible truths and disgusting confessions” in his comedy has been commended for making him more approachable to viewers. He discusses issues including relationships, sex, and drugs. He discusses instances ranging from his uncomfortable high school years through his brief residence at St. Francis College.
He cracks jokes about extremely delicate matters, such as how his father died in the September 11 attacks. He claims that doing so gives him the ability to combat the sense of helplessness that being exposed to such tragedy at a young age left him with. He like the Harry Potter series and has used elements from it in some of his comedic work.
Davidson called Brooklyn Heights, New York, home in October 2015. He shared a house in Staten Island, New York, with his mother in 2019. He moved into his own home in Staten Island in April 2021. Davidson made plans to transfer from Staten Island to Brooklyn in February 2022. Leo, the son of Ricky Velez, a fellow comedian and friend, has Davidson as his godfather.
On his arms, legs, chest, hands, and neck by the month of August 2018, Davidson had more than 40 tattoos. On his left arm, Davidson has a tattoo of his father’s fireman badge number, 8418. He mentioned having some of them removed during a May 2021 interview.
In the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Davidson backed Hillary Clinton. On December 5, 2017, he announced on Instagram that he had gotten a tattoo of Clinton, whom he called his “idol,” a “badass,” and “one of the strongest individuals in the universe,” on his leg.
I have a Pete Davidson tattoo, which makes it substantially less embarrassing, Clinton herself joked as she thanked Davidson for the praise. In the 2020 U.S. presidential election, he backed Joe Biden.
A defunct Staten Island boat was purchased in January 2022 by Davidson and fellow SNL employee Colin Jost with the intention of turning it into a comedy club.
