His father was working as a firefighter in New York City, and he was last seen running into the Marriott Trade Center just before it collapsed, according to witnesses. Pete’s grief was profoundly traumatic, and he later demonstrated his sorrow by acting out in school as a way of expressing himself.

He found himself in a precarious situation on a regular basis. Later, he revealed that he had struggled with suicidal thoughts and that the music of Kid Cudi had helped him to overcome them. Petersburgh High School in 2012 and enrolled at St. Francis College, but dropped out after only one semester to pursue a career in stand-up comedy.

His performance in the first season received critical acclaim, and Davidson is frequently lauded for being accessible to audiences and for mocking delicate and taboo subjects, including those that are perilously near to his own life and emotions, such as the 9/11 events. When the 44th season of Saturday Night Live finished, critics in the Washington Post hailed Davidson as the show’s breakout star and most memorable performer.

In April 2016, Davidson taped his first Comedy Central stand-up special. In January 2019, Davidson announced that he would be touring alongside John Mulaney for a limited run of “Sundays with Pete & John” comedy gigs.

Afterward, he clarified on a podcast with Marc Maron that he continued to use marijuana on occasion, though he had significantly reduced his consumption.

Pete has over 40 tattoos, including one of his father’s firefighting badges, number 8418, on his left arm, which he got when he was a kid.


An investigation into Davidson’s mental health was launched by the New York Police Department on December 15, 2018, after he posted an Instagram message expressing suicidal thoughts, which sparked concern among his followers, friends, and ex-fiancee Grande.

Favorite Quotes from Pete Davidson

“I’m not making fun of it because I want to make fun of it. I’m making fun of it so I feel better. I don’t want people to think any time there’s a tragedy that I’m going to make a joke about it. It’s only funny to me because it’s personal to me. And that was always the goal. It wasn’t to be this insulted person.” 

“I don’t want idiots in my audience. So if my coming forward with what my beliefs are is what you need to hear to not be a fan anymore, that’s great. That means next time I show up in whatever said city, your dumb ass won’t be there.”

“My jokes have definitely changed. ‘SNL’ has helped with that, because when you’re on ‘SNL,’ you have to kind of pay attention to the news. I feel like my material has gotten smarter now.”

“I don’t let a lot of people know about my dad dying on 9/11. It’s not a way to introduce yourself. So I never told anybody, and then I would do jokes about it… and I think people thought I was lying about it. Which would be crazy!”
