Later in an interview on the morning radio show The Breakfast Club in October 2016, Davidson discussed his childhood trauma of suicide and how Kid Cudi’s music saved his life.
At the age of 16, Davidson tried standup comedy for the first time in a Staten Island bowling alley, but he got his the first onscreen appearance at the age of 19 in the third episode of MTV-produced show ‘Failosophy’.
