Pete Davidson hit the stage for the first time at the age of 16. Since then Pete has toured North America playing colleges, comedy clubs and theaters. The Staten Island native has broke out this year starring in three MTV programs: Guy Code, Wild 'N' Out: Raw and Failosophy. Pete will be making his network stand-up comedy debut on Comedy Central this Fall and appeared on AXS TV's Gotham Comedy Live. 2013 also marks his debut in a feature film with his role in Nick Cannon's School Dance.
At 19 years of age, Pete's stand-up is considered fresh and honest. In 2011, CBS Radio took notice and claimed he was "next up… and by next up, we mean NOW!" The praise landed him a role on 92.3NOW's morning show "Rollin with Nick Cannon." His work on the highly rated talk show led to a nation-wide tour with Cannon.
Even at a young age, Pete has a lot to say on stage. He takes his real life situations whether it's tackling family issues or the pitfalls of adolescence and finds the humor behind it all. When he's not touring Pete can be seen throughout New York City performing at Caroline's On Broadway, Gotham Comedy Club and The Stand.
