Pete Davidson was 7 years old when he lost his firefighter father in the September 11 attacks. The man was seen climbing the stairs just moments before the Marriott World Trade Center collapsed, and the news of his death came as a thunderbolt to the school-bound boy. He was so traumatized that he ended up pulling the hair out of his head to the point where he had no hair at all.
He used jokes to mask his traumas and at some point, he realized that he could make a career out of it. He was 16 years old when, provoked by his friends, who knew his aspirations, went on stage for the first time. It went well for him, so he made a habit out of it, and shortly after entering college, he realized that he preferred comedy over school. He gave up his studies and devoted himself entirely to his career.
