Seeing as obsessing over your fiancé isn’t an actual career, we decided to look into what Pete Davidson actually does for a living. As it turns out, the 24-year-old has quite the impressive resume.
Between starring on Saturday Night Live and a handful of other lesser titles, the young comedian is clearly on the rise. So much so, in fact, that he recently snagged a role in the Netflix original movie, Set It Up.

While Ariana Grande’s boo didn’t land the lead, he did manage to make a pretty lasting impression as a secondary character named Duncan. Basically, Duncan is the quick-witted, sarcastic, gay best friend/roommate that Romantic Comedy tropes dream of.
Again, even if Pete didn’t get a whole lot of screen time, what audiences did see proves that he’s got talent! Plus, fans of Ariana in particular really want to see what all the fuss is about. After all, he managed to sweep her off her feet in under a month. If you’re interested in catching Pete in some other titles, he was in a hilarious episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine back in 2013, as well as having a brief, but memorable role in Amy Schumer’s 2015 Trainwreck.
Now that he’s marrying a genuine pop princess, it’s likely that Pete will start bringing in some more bacon. Even if SNL is a huge deal, being the husband of Ariana Grande will open up doors! We’re looking forward to seeing Pete on more television and movie screens in the near future.
