Early Career and Initial Breakthrough

Born and bred on Staten Island, New York, Pete Davidson came into the world on November 16, 1993. Life knocked him back at seven when his dad, a firefighter named Scott Davidson, died in the 9/11 attacks. This painful memory heavily influenced Pete, shaping his funny bone and his world view. It was humor that helped him cope, and by 16 he was on stage making people laugh at a local bowling alley. Whether he was riffing on his personal struggles or cracking wise about the world, Pete was a natural, and soon enough he knew future lay in comedy.

Pete’s knack for stand-up landed him gigs on MTV reality shows like “Guy Code” and “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out”, and soon TV audiences started to recognize his face. A minor gig in the movie “Trainwreck” led to two major influences on the direction of Pete’s career. It brought Pete in contact with Judd Apatow, who would later direct his semi-autobiographical movie The King of Staten Island, and actor Bill Hader, who thought Pete was perfect for “Saturday Night Live”. Hader liked him so much, he recommended him to “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels.

Pete subsequently snagged a place on “SNL” despite being only 20 years old, making him one of the youngest members to ever join the legendary show. His raw, straight-shooting brand of humor, coupled with his youthful charm, quickly made him a household name, earned him rave reviews, and helped him amass a constantly growing #PeteSqd.

Revenues from Primary Career

Pete kicked off his “SNL” adventure in 2014, earning $7,000 each episode for his first year. Do the math: that’s around $147,000 for 21 shows.

As with any job, though, the longer Pete stayed on the show, the larger were his paychecks. However, his wallet wasn’t totally reliant on “SNL”. The guy’s funny bone extends to the cinema. Remember “The King of Staten Island”? Pete’s semi-autobiographical comedy really bumped up his net worth.

Pete, not being done with television, launched his new show, “Bupkis”, on Peacock. Rumor has it, he’s pocketing a cool half a million per episode. Though there are only eight episodes in season 1, that still totals a more-than-respectable $4 million.

Other Revenues

Besides being comedy gold on “SNL” and the stand-up stage, Pete Davidson is looking for gold by pursuing business ventures outside the entertainment world. He’s tagged up with fellow Staten Island brother and “SNL” comedian Colin Jost and real estate ace Paul Italia to take ownership of a retired Staten Island ferry. The trio paid $280,100 with hopes of turning this beast into a one-of-a-kind chill spot with food, drinks, and live shows.

And that’s not where Pete’s business-minded streak stops. He stepped foot in the nightlife scene by opening a stylish and historically rich bar in midtown Manhattan, back in 2022. Known originally as Hurley’s, it’s got heavy hitter celebs like Justin Theroux, Mark Ronson, and Jason Sudeikis as investors.

But it’s not all about investment for Pete. His relatability has also made him a poster boy for several brands. In 2022, H&M picked him for a campaign aiming to win over the average joe, boosting its presence among male shoppers. But Pete’s been the face of more than just H&M, he’s also done deals with Manscaped, Smartwater, Hellmann’s, Calvin Klein, and Moose Knuckles, which doesn’t just add bucks to his bank but also exposes him to markets he might not have otherwise hit.

Pete Davidson’s Real Estate Investments and Philanthropic Work

Pete Davidson knows how to splash the cash. He owns not one, but two properties on Staten Island. Around 2016, he dropped $1.3 million on a house for his mom (what a sweetheart!), and not long ago, in 2020, he snagged another property for $1.2 million just up the street. He even secured a swanky pad in Brooklyn, where he’s living it up for a hefty $30,000 a month.

Pete gives back too. Just this past year, he co-hosted a comedy charity gig paying homage to the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a cause that hits close to home for him, showing us he’s about more than just the laughs. He’s putting his money towards good causes in honor of his late dad.

Pete Davidson’s Personal Life

Little Pete grew up under the wings of his mom and loved her so much he didn’t leave—even as an adult. This shows how tight their bond is. His dad’s presence lives on in the form of ink on Pete’s skin. He has a tattoo of a firefighter on one knee along with the Roman numeral nine representing a tribute to his dad, Scott.

Pete’s love life has been as colorful as his comedy career, featuring a string of high-profile ladies: Carly Aquilino, Cazzie David, Ariana Grande (to whom he was briefly engaged), and Kim Kardashian, to name a few. He most recently called actress Chase Sui Wonders his girlfriend, though rumors suggest the pair split in August 2023 and are now just friends.

Headline Stuff

Back in March 2023, Pete had a run-in with the police, as he plowed his car into a house in Beverly Hills. Luckily, no one got hurt, but the actor’s street cred—not to mention, his driving record—sure took a hit. Details of the circumstances surrounding the crash are few, though it’s known Pete was charged with reckless driving. In July, it was announced Pete must complete 50 hours of community service, attend driving school, pay restitution to the homeowners, and visit a morgue to see first-hand the cost of reckless driving.
