“Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson, who has been in the news a lot lately, will appear in a double bill with fellow standup comedian John Mulaney, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer, at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, Jan. 13 at 8 p.m.
Tickets go on sale at noon today. Visit stnj.org/event/john-mulaney-and-pete-davidson.
(Jan. 4 Update: A second show, at 10:30 p.m., has been added, and will go on sale at noon Jan. 4.)
Davidson, who has publicly acknowledged his mental health problems in recent years, underwent a very public breakup with fiancée Ariana Grande last year, and shared an Instagram post about being suicidal on Dec. 15. Police investigated, but Davidson was deemed sufficiently healthy to make a brief appearance on “Saturday Night Live” later that day.
According to the theater’s web site, the show “may contain adult-themed material” and “is not suited for minors.”
