Pete Davidson: SMD – Coping with a Family Tragedy – Uncensored

– We’ll do some 9/11 jokes, and then we’ll get the fuck
out of here. How’s that sound? [laughs] It’s hard to transition
into anything. I don’t have–I don’t know
if you’ve noticed anything about my comedy, but there’s–
there’s not many transitions. It’s very, like,
“Dick, fuck, Dad.” Like, it’s, like,
very straightforward, easy-listening comedy. Like, it’s not
the Kendrick Lamar– I’m very French Montana
of comedy. Like, every show, I feel like
I should just be like, “Huh!” And you’ll be like, “Aha! I get it.” So, yeah, my dad,
if you don’t know, he was a fireman. He died 9/11. He was a very good dude. And I have a lot of jokes
about it, and if you don’t like
the first one, you probably won’t like
the rest. What’s cool about your dad dying
on 9/11… [laughter] is I get
all of his fireman gear. So whenever I smoke weed
in New York City, I wear it. You know? Yeah, so now people just think
I’m a shitty fireman. But I’ll be so high,
I’ll forget. Like, people will come up
to me and be like, “You’re a fucking disgrace!” And I’ll be like,
a fucking disgrace!” I’ll be like, “Oh, shit,
I’m a lieutenant. “I forgot.
I’m very sorry. Have a good day, ma’am!” I didn’t really care
when my dad died. It didn’t bother me very much,
because I was seven. You don’t understand things
when you’re seven, you know? If it happened now,
I’d be in a world of trouble, but I’m actually–
it’s weird to say this. I’m lucky it happened
when I was seven. I know that sounds weird,
but it’s the real thing. Like, I remember my dad died,
and my mom was like, “Your dad’s dead, but
we got you a PlayStation 2.” And I was like, “Yeah, cool.” I was like,
“That seems about even. It’s pretty fair.” No, I’m serious.
I really didn’t care. I was like, “I’m gonna
push my mom down the stairs and get a PS3.” I was fucking ridiculous. It’s my new life
of murder and toys. What’s weird is, my grandma
on my mom’s side, my mom’s mom, she’s–her birthday’s on 9/11, and she never liked my dad. crowd: Oh! – Kind of fishy, isn’t it? [laughter] I always wanted to ask her. I always wanted to be like,
“Hey, Grandma, “on the low, did you make any wishes?” I want to get a tattoo. I want to get my dad’s initials. It’s a very, like, Italian,
Staten Island thing to do. I feel like Italian people
are almost, like, waiting for someone in their family
to die so they can go get a tattoo. I’m serious. You ever been to, like,
an Italian funeral or wake and the son of whoever died has, like, the prayer card
going down their side? You know, like, how the fuck
did you do that already? And it’s, like, healed. I, um– I want to get my dad’s initials,
you know. I want to get it tattooed on me. I feel like it would be
very cool. But I found out recently
I can’t. I don’t know why
I never noticed it. I guess I just never
pay attention, but my dad’s initials
are SMD. Yeah. That’s why we named
the special “SMD,” but SMD
also has other meanings, like, for instance,
“suck my dick.” That’s the more popular meaning, believe it or not. So my friends are like,
“You can’t get that tattoo, because people will think
you’re an asshole.” You know? And I agree. I’m like, “You’re right.
I shouldn’t.” But then I thought about it. I was like, “I should.” I was like, “I could only win.” I was like, “If someone has
the balls to bring it up to me, oh, I would win, like,
so fast.” Like, I will never lose.
It’s so dope. Think about that. I’ll have it on my neck. Fucking having a good time. Girls come up to me, and they’re like,
“You’re a fucking pig.” All I got to do is be like:
[whimpers] “Actually,
it’s my dead dad’s initials.” And then they’ll feel so bad, they’ll probably suck my dick. Hey, guys, you’ve been amazing. Thank you. Thank you for coming out. Thank you very much. [cheers and applause]
