AceShowbiz - Pete Davidson is returning to stand-up stage after suicide scare. The "Saturday Night Live" star took the stage in some of stand-up shows on New Year's Eve including one show in Boston, Massachusetts and the other in the nearby suburb of Medford. In the shows, the former boyfriend of Ariana Grande talked about wide-ranging topics. One of them was him slamming fellow comedian Louis C.K.
Pete reportedly delivered a "rough and raucous stand-up set" in his Boston gig. According to E! News, the 25-year-old claimed that the disgraced comic tried to sabotage his career on "Saturday Night Live". Pete first told the audience that everyone he gets a tattoo of will die.
"I got a Harry Potter tattoo. Then the next day Alan Rickman, the guy who played Snape died, and I was like, oh, what a weird coincidence," Pete, who wore a green jacket, baseball cap and black sweatpants, said. "The I got a Willy Wonka tattoo. Next day--Gene Wilder dies. Now I'm like, alright, that’s a coincidence, that's weird. So I'm thinking of getting a tattoo of Louis C.K., what do you guys think?"
He claimed that Louis, who is an alum of the NBC long-running comedy show, tried to get him fired from the show for smoking weed when the latter hosted "SNL" for the fourth time in 2017. At that time, it was only a year after Pete joined the show. Louis allegedly "told all the producers in front of me that all this kid does is smoke weed and he’s gonna smoke his career away." Pete went on saying that the "American Hustle" star told the show's executive producer, Lorne Michaels, "that Pete smokes so much weed that it makes people uncomfortable."
"Then five years later this motherf**ker's been locking doors and jerking off in front of people," he added, making a reference to sexual assault allegations that are leveled against Louis.
During his stand-up gig, Pete also talked about "Thank U, Next", a hit breakup song by ex Ariana in which she adressed all of her exes. "Here's the thing about the breakup song. Usually breakup songs you know who it's about but you don't really know. That G named all of us," he allegedly told the crowd.
"Bam. She named all of us. And then, tells us, yeah, he has a big dick," he continued. "That s**t came out before I had to put on a f--king duck hat and be like, 'derrrp here's the pizza!' So all my friends were there. It was a sad day. We didn't know it was going to happen."
Admitting that "this won't be easy, this is rough," he added that he started playing it. "And we're all like, 'Ehhh… it's ok.' We're like 'Okay, it's not that bad for you,' " he shared.
