Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson said in a recent interview that he will no longer perform on college campuses because students are too sensitive about jokes. According to Davidson, “The second you open your mouth and have an opinion, you lose money today.”
In an interview with Paper Magazine, Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson has announced that he will no longer perform on college campuses. The reason for Davidson’s decision? The 26-year-old claims that comedians “can’t talk about anything” on campuses without offending someone.
Davidson claimed that comedians are afraid that performing for sensitive audiences on campuses will hurt their careers.
The Saturday Night Live star told Paper Magazine that sensitive audiences make it difficult for comedy to flourish because material often requires experimentation. Davidson says that “political correctness” takes away a comic’s freedom to explore new territory.
Davidson certainly isn’t the first comedian to complain about political correctness on campus. Breitbart News reported in 2018 on all of the comedians that have refused to perform on college campuses due to concerns that students would charge them with bigotry. Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock are two major figures in comedy that have refused to perform on campuses.
