Pete Davidson Interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” [Video]


Set to return to the bright lights of New York City for some high-profile appearances, Pete Davidson talks about getting the call from Lorne Michaels about hosting Saturday Night Live, working with Edie Falco and Joe Pesci in the Peacock series Bupkis and creating scenes for Ray Romano.

Bupkis, which Davidson is co-writing with his long-time friend and collaborator Dave Sirus as well as Judah Miller (Crashing), will combine grounded storytelling with absurd elements from the unfiltered and completely original worldview for which Davidson is known.

The show, which has been compared to Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, is expected to reflect Davidson’s real-life persona with an unapologetically  R-rated storytelling. Talks have already started with A-list talent for the ensemble cast around Davidson.
Bupkis is executive produced by Davidson, Sirus and Miller as well as Broadway Video’s Michaels, Andrew Singer and Erin David.

Lorne Michaels’s Broadway Video is producing with Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, where the company is under a deal.

The series premieres on Peacock May 4.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon features hilarious highlights from the show, including comedy sketches, music parodies, celebrity interviews, ridiculous games, and, of course, Jimmy’s Thank You Notes and hashtags!
