Missed out on a chance to see Pete Davidson live and in person? You’re in luck, as the Saturday Night Live alum’s latest comedy special, Turbo Fonzarelli, is set to premiere next week on Netflix. Ahead of its release, the streaming service dropped the official trailer for the special on Wednesday (Jan. 3).
The teaser, filmed in black and white, features Davidson smoking a cigarette by himself on a leather sofa before heading out on stage. A narrator’s voice comes in and says, “Coming Jan. 9th: a Netflix comedy special, Pete Davidson is Turbo Fonzarelli.”
After Davidson — who briefly dated Ariana Grande in 2018 — gets up to head on stage, leaving a cloud of smoke behind as he makes his way to the screaming fans on the other side, the narrator wonders, “What the f–k is a Turbo Fonzarelli?”
Turbo Fonzarelli marks the comedian’s second hourlong Netflix special. The first, Pete Davidson: Alive From New York, debuted on the streaming platform in 2020. According to a press release, the new standup special — which has an hour run time — will see the 30-year-old discussing “what it means to grow up and turn 30, discussing love, life, and living in the woods.”
Davidson is wrapping up a series of tour dates this week, and will be making stops in Wisconsin, Connecticut and Massachusetts before concluding the trek at The Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading, Penn.
Turbo Fonzarelli premieres on Netflix Jan. 9. Watch the trailer for the comedy special above.
