Pete Davidson is set to host Saturday Night Live on May 6, the show announced last night. The musical guest will be Lil Uzi Vert. “Page Six” had reported last week that Davidson is expected to attend the Met Gala that Monday. That should be okay, since the host doesn’t really have to start getting in the mix until table read. Both events will be promo for Bupkis, Davidson’s new Peacock show that premieres May 4. Edie Falco plays his mom, Joe Pesci plays his grandfather, and guest stars include Charlie Day, a shirtless Simon Rex, and current paramour Chase Sui Wonders.

Speaking of current paramour Chase Sui Wonders, Davidson recently expressed some hurt about jokes made on SNL about his dating life. “When it’s your own show, and I’ll be sitting in the back watching the cold open and [it’s] topical political humor or whatever in the culture, and they’re making fun of you and you gotta walk out and do a sketch next and hit your mark,” he said on John Bernthal’s podcast, “the show just made fun of you, so why are they going to laugh at you? They just dogged you.”
