“Saturday Night Live” regular Pete Davidson is releasing his first Netflix comedy special this February and he’s not holding back on the gay jokes.
The show is aptly titled “Pete Davidson: Alive From New York.” This is a clever wordplay on SNL’s long-time tagline intro: “Live from New York it’s Saturday Night Live!” as a nod to the long-running sketch show that launched his career to new heights.
Its first trailer officially dropped with Davidson seen on stage cracking jokes about his unfiltered opinions on gay men.
“I don’t think there’s a more honest relationship between a gay dude and a straight dude because there’s just nothing to gain,” he quipped as the audience welcomed his humor with laughter.
After this, he says that he feels “there’s always one gay friend that I don’t think is f—ing gay at all.”
And what exactly gives said gay friend away for Davidson? “It’s that gay dude that will, like, run up on your girlfriend and squeeze her boobs and slap her ass and be like, ‘Damn girl, you look great!'” he explained.
He proceeds, “I don’t find that f—ing funny — like at all. I’m all for the gayness; it doesn’t mean I’m against gayness. You just get to slap ass on a technicality? That’s not f—ing fair at all.”
“I would never do that just because I could. I would never walk up to his boyfriend, tug his dick and be like, ‘Nice, Gary. Not for me, but cool.'” Watch the sneak preview of Davidson’s stand-up special below:
This goes to show that skating on thin ice is on-brand for Davidson’s humor. His Netflix special will be available for streaming on February 25, Tuesday.
