In the teaser clip from the Pete Davidson stand-up special, the comedian talks about the purity of a friendship between a straight guy and a gay guy, because neither has anything to gain from the other. It’s an amusingly astute observation, something Davidson is known for whenever he comes to the Weekend Update desk.
Pete Davidson is at his funniest on SNL when he’s basically doing stand-up bits at the Weekend Update desk. So to get an entire Netflix special from him will be great. Granted, his seemingly careless attitude can get a little trying from time-to-time, but he really is an outstanding comedian who is much better than he has any right to be at his age.
Pete Davidson: Alive in New York was filmed at the Gramercy Theatre and hits Netflix on February 25, 2020.
