Pete Davidson made his ‘Saturday Night Live’ debut on the 40th season premiere, and he made a lasting first impression, to say the least. Click to WATCH his raunchy first sketch!
Pete Davidson was the only new cast member added to season 40 of Saturday Night Live. The 20-year-old comedian made his debut on the season premiere during the “Weekend Update” segment, and his sketch left us laughing and our jaws on the floor.
Pete Davidson Makes ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut
During the “Weekend Update” segment with new co-host Michael Che, Pete was introduced as the “resident young person.”
Michael had just announced that a Pennsylvania teen could face prison time for photographing himself with a statue of Jesus, and Pete was there to comment on the issue.
Pete didn’t think it was such a big deal. The 20-year-old and his friends have done similar things and more.
Michael was taken aback by the question. “For those of you who don’t know what the game is, basically, one of your friends will be like ‘Hey man, would you go down on a guy for a million dollars?’ And then we would all lie and be like, ‘No.'”
Pete later revealed he definitely would take on the challenge. “Of course I would,” he said. “A $1 million is a steal. Hope he starts at $1 million. I’d do it for like $3,000 if had to be honest with myself.”
When asked by friends if he was gay, he replied, “No, I’m a businessman.”
“If you don’t go down on a guy for a million dollars, you obviously don’t care about your family,” he joked.
We have to say, Pete’s debut was pretty hilarious. His sketch may have pushed the envelope a little too far, but he’s definitely someone you won’t forget. We’re excited to see more of Pete this season!
