Amy Schumer has some jokes about kickstarting Pete Davidson’s career.
On a recent episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Schumer said she’s taking “full credit for Pete Davidson’s success.”
Schumer gave Davidson his first movie role in the 2015 comedy “Trainwreck.” One of the movie’s costars, Bill Hader, enjoyed working with Davidson so much he put him up for a role on “Saturday Night Live.” He eventually became a cast member.
“He was one of those … he was like 19 or 18 or something and absolutely, I was like, this kid’s going to be a star,” Schumer said.
Davidson wasn’t the only future “SNL” member Schumer had a feeling about before they were famous.
“Same with Michael Che, you know,” she said. “Like I was like, you meet these people and they’re just like living in far out in Queens, sharing a room like with, having lots of roommates. You’re like, oh but you’re going to [be big] someday.”
Later this year, Schumer will provide a voice in “Trolls Band Together.”
