Saturday Night Live has a new featured player: It’s Pete Davidson, a New York comedian who’s been featured on MTV’s Guy Code and on Adam DeVine’s House Party, a Comedy Central sitcom that includes stand-up sets.

Davidson has also appeared on the FOX comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine in a guest role. In April, he did a stand-up set on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he revealed that he’s only 20 years old: “I just dropped out of college,” Davidson said. “That’s my big move this year.”

Davidson is the only new featured player to be added to the upcoming 40th season of SNL. The new season premieres Sept. 27 on NBC.
