Pete Davidson's Bupkis Adds More Big-Name Celebrity Guest Stars
Pete Davidson will be joined by Al Gore, John Mulaney, Charlamagne Tha God, Machine Gun Kelly, Steve Buscemi and more on Bupkis.
Bupkis, the upcoming comedy from creator and star Pete Davidson, just announced a slew of incredible guest stars joining the already star-studded cast.
On Monday, Peacock revealed 14 big names that will play characters on Bupkis when all eight episodes drop on May 4 for all the world to stream. It’s unclear who these people will be playing on the show, which tells the exaggerated, real-life story of the former Saturday Night Live alum’s unique upbringing on Staten Island as well as his meteoric rise to fame. However, with celebrities like this joining the comedy, it’s sure to be a good time.

Who's Starring in Bupkis?
Joining Davidson and the previously announced cast will be La La Anthony, Charlamagne Tha God, Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly), Steve Buscemi, Bobby Cannavale, Philip Ettinger, Al Gore, Paul, Walter Hauser, Sunita Mani, John Mulaney, Oona Roche, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Jon Stewart, and Marissa Jaret Winokur. These big names join the already announced list of guest stars that include Charlie Day, Brad Garrett, Simon Rex, Ray Romano, Kenan Thompson, and Chase Sui Wonders.
Starring in the show is, of course, Davidson, who will be telling his own story as both the writer and star. He’ll be joined by series regulars Edie Falco who will play his mother along with Joe Pesci, who will play his grandfather — both based on real-life people who were very formative to the young comedian’s upbringing.
Davidson co-wrote the series alongside his longtime collaborator Dave Sirus, who is also an executive producer. Together, they worked with showrunner Judah Miller and director Jason Orley and fellow executive producers Lorne Michaels Andrew Singer, and Erin Davis.
While Bupkis promises a new spin on Davidson’s life story so far, it isn’t the first time he’s dipped into his personal well to tell a story. Many may remember his similarly semi-autobiographical comedy film The King of Staten Island, which told the story of a character similar to him who also lost his father, a firefighter, during the 9/11 terrorist attacks learning to grow up and make peace with his dad’s legacy.
You can catch all eight episodes of Bupkis on Peacock on May 4 and watch Davidson in the movie Meet Cute.
