NEW YORK, October 11, 2016 – What does “SMD” mean?! For Pete Davidson, two very different things. Find out what they are and learn all about the young comedic sensation in his first one-hour stand-up special, “Pete Davidson: SMD,” premiering uncensored and with limited commercial interruption on Saturday, October 29 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
Filmed in front of a sold-out hometown crowd in New York City, “Pete Davidson: SMD” is filled with Davidson’s unfiltered, brutally honest anecdotes about smoking a Snoop Dogg amount of weed, texting his mom dick pics, and his issue with male porn stars. From his stint in “prehab” to this one time at a Justin Bieber concert, Davidson shows that even at 22, he and his friends have had some high times and heavy experiences.
