Bupkis | Official Trailer | Peacock Original

Davidson has expressed on multiple occasions, including recently, how he felt dehumanized by all the jokes made at his expense during his time at Saturday Night Live. Yet here he clearly doesn’t mind making fun of himself, or at least of his image. From the sardonic look of a customs agent asking about drugs, to his sister lamenting how everyone’s always asking about her brother’s dick, to the litany of mean headlines (ending with “Butthole Eyes”), Bupkis stuffs all the typical “Pete Davidson” clichés into the trailer. It’s a somewhat interesting blurring of reality and fiction, down to the fact that the comic’s real-life girlfriend Chase Sui Wonders plays his on-screen love interest.


There are a number of other famous faces in the trailer, including an intimidating Bobby Cannavale, a loose-cannon Simon Rex, and Charlie Day in the role of therapist. Jon Stewart, Ray Romano, Brad Garrett, Kenan Thompson, and Al Gore, of all people, are among the trailer’s other stars, while the expected guest roster further includes La La Anthony, Colson Baker (a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly), Steve Buscemi, Charlamagne Tha God, Philip Ettinger, Paul Walter Hauser, Sunita Mani, Oona Roche, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

Interestingly, the trailer ends on a joke not about Davidson’s hectic personal life, but about his pal John Mulaney’s. “We’re in comedy. You’ve gotta be able to walk away from anything in your life in 30 seconds flat. That’s why I got nothing tying me down,” Mulaney advises his friend. “You have a kid,” Davidson reminds him, to which Mulaney replies, “Oh yeah.” Guess everyone’s getting in on the joke in Bupkis.
