“One time, I got The Wiggles to mesh with Schindler’s List,” Pete joked at the comedy show while talking about being on ketamine, People reported.
Pete has joked about ketamine in his standup act before and has been candid about his mental health struggles for years. In 2017, the Bupkis actor talked about being bipolar while speaking on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast, during which he revealed he had undergone rehab the previous year. He attributed part of his ongoing struggles to the death of his firefighter father, Scott Davidson, who was killed in the line of duty during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
“My big thing is trust,” said the actor, who was 7 years old when he lost his dad. “One day he was here and the next day he was gone.”
In 2020, he spoke about his past rehab experience in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God.
“I have to get my meds readjusted all the time because I have, in between bipolar and borderline, and like PTSD and s–t from my childhood,” Pete said. “So I have to go and get readjusted every once a while. I don’t think going to rehab is that big of a deal.”
He continued, “It’s not always for drugs. Do I do drugs? Absolutely. But I’m not like f–king falling over myself and all that s–t. Some people are sad. Some people gotta work and figure their stuff out and the beautiful thing about rehab is like it gets you sober so they can figure out what the problem is. “
