Pete Davidson has two great credits his name: Saturday Night Live and MTV. He’s 26 and he has already starred on television, in movies, and with stand-up. Quite a start for a talent whose early life dealt with tragedy.
Growing Up on Staten Island
Pete was born in 1993, the first child of Amy and Scott Davidson. His Mom is Irish-Catholic, his Dad Jewish. Pete was raised Catholic and attended St. Joseph of the Sea High School.
Tragedy struck the family during the September 11 attacks. Pete’s Dad was lost on 9/11, last seen running into the Marriott World Trade Center.
Dealing with the Loss
Pete says his Dad’s death was «overwhelming, » and he entertained thoughts of suicide. He acted out in school and was constantly in trouble. He tried college but dropped out to try comedy.
His first gig was at a Staten Island bowling when he was 16. He did it on a dare. His initial television gig was on MTV and that led to appearances on various reality shows. He then got a small role in the move «Trainwreck» where he met Saturday Night Live cast member Bill Hader. That connection led Pete to SNL.
Pete Gets Paid
Landing a spot on Saturday Night Live helped Pete build his net worth to $6 million. He makes between $315,000 — $500,000 per year on SNL. But he makes the big bucks from movies and stand-up.
He has appeared in 12 movies since his big screen debut in 2013. His stand-up career took off when he joined the SNL cast. His first Comedy Central special was in 2016.
Pete and his Mom bought a $1.3 million dollar home on Staten Island. Pete lives in the basement when he’s not living in major upscale digs with his current girlfriend.
He lived with Ariana Grande in a $16 million apartment in Manhattan until their engagement was ended in 2019. Pete says his sole responsibility was to stock the fridge.
Pete says he’s not a car guy. He’s got a nice ride for not being a car guy. Pete drives an S Class Mercedes. List price starts at $95,000.
Pete says he loves his car because it hugs him. He says the seats are so comfortable he feels as if the car is giving him a hug whenever he drives. That’d be a $95,000 hug!
Pete often refers to his stints in rehab as his «vacation.» He suffers from Chron’s disease and has said he smokes marijuana to better handle the disease.
Pete does take somewhat normal vacations. Earlier in 2020 he ducked out on an SNL episode to take his new girlfriend to a friend’s wedding in Miami.
