AceShowbiz - Pete Davidson was not himself in one of his stand-up performances. Still feeling perturbed over the death of his fellow comedian Kevin Barnett, the 25-year-old comedian could not give his all during his comedy show at Caroline's on Broadway in New York City on Tuesday, January 22.
After touching the subject of his p***s size, his breakup with Ariana Grande and his struggle with mental health, he asked how long he had been up on stage. "My head hurts. How long have I been up here?" he asked. "Sorry, my brain is mush."
The "Saturday Night Live" star continued his routine for a few moments before he asked "how much longer" he had on stage. He then said apologetically to the audience that they were free to leave if they were feeling tired.
Kevin died on Tuesday, January 22. United Talent Agency confirmed the sad news on its official Twitter account. "We are deeply saddened by the passing of our friend and client Kevin Barnett," it read. "He was an incredible talent and a wonderful person. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. We will miss him."
Even though the cause of Kevin's death is currently still unknown, his last Instagram post showed that he was in Mexico just a few days before his death. "In mexico. Bought myself a sweater," he wrote. "Been accused of appropriation several times. In my head I just gave a lady some money so I ain’t cold. Either way. Swag heavy. Mixtape comin."
Pete wrote a tribute to Kevin through Marcus Russel Price's Instagram Story feature. "The world lost a great one today. One of our comedy family members Kevin Barnett has tragically passed. I love Kevin. I've known him for nearly 10 years and he's always been the sweetest and funniest," the story said.
"Always had a smile on his face. Was one of the few that treated me like a comic even when I was just 16 years old. He always made me feel part of the group," the story continued. "Thank you Kevin for being in my life and blessing us with your talents and positive energy. This one really f**ked me up. You will be missed."
