Pete Davidson, the young “Saturday Night Live” regular whose off-camera behavior has frequently landed him in the news, will perform Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. at College Street Music Hall in New Haven. The show was announced Monday afternoon.
The show is billed as “Pete Davidson & Friends,” though the “friends” have not been specified. Davidson, who’s known his snarky and self-deprecating slacker-styled humor, has performed similarly titled shows in recent months with an assortment of lesser-known stand-up comedians. The Jan. 11 show is part of a brief spate of just-announced shows, including two in Tarrytown, N.Y., on Jan. 12, not far from where Davidson grew up in Staten Island.
Davidson joined the “Saturday Night Live” cast in 2014, when he was just 20 years old. (He turned 25 this past November.) His short-lived engagement to pop star Ariana Grande this past summer was the grist for several “SNL” sketches in September. The engagement was called off in October. In November, Davidson was accused of insensitivity when he described Congressman (and former Navy Seal) Dan Crenshaw as looking like “a hitman in a porno movie.” Crenshaw appeared on the next episode of the show to receive an on-air apology from Davidson.
Last month Davidson made headlines again when he posted on Instagram that “I really don’t want to be on this Earth anymore,” prompting New York police to visit the “Saturday Night Live” studio for a “wellness check.”
College Street Music Hall is at 238 College St. in downtown New Haven. The venue, which mainly does rock concerts, has also attracted shows by some major comedians over the years, sometimes at short notice. Aziz Ansari made College Street Music Hall one of the stops on his comeback tour in September, and Mike Birbiglia worked out material there for what became his current Broadway show “The New One.”
Tickets to the Jan. 12 “Pete Davidson & Friends” show cost $32.04 and are available through Ticketfly, 877-987-6487. More information is at collegestreetmusicalhall.com.
