It’s ironic that Pete Davidson is the least interesting part of Bupkis, an autobiographical series about the ins and outs of Davidson’s life. The half-hour comedy takes on the same raunchy, stoner, and self-deprecating humor Davidson is known for, so if you’ve seen some of his stand-up specials, SNL segments, and the film The King of Staten Island (a much better outing, in this writer’s opinion), you’ll know what to expect in Bupkis: a lot of Davidson revisiting his childhood trauma and poking fun at himself for being the internet’s reluctant star.  

That’s all fine and funny enough, but what really makes Bupkis much better than your standard sitcom is the people around Davidson. If you can appreciate anything about Davidson, it’s his appreciation for the people most others would usually forget after fame. Hometown locals, childhood friends, extended families—they’re all here and they all shine much brighter than the series’ star. Brilliantly, Joe Pesci plays Davidson’s grandfather, Edie Falco his mother, and Bobby Cannavale his uncle. They’re fully fleshed and superbly acted, bringing much-needed tenderness and humbleness to the picture. It’s a pleasant surprise to see them in a series that is teetering on the verge of self-indulgence. So with Bupkis, you can come out of curiosity, but you will stay for the supporting characters, who truly live up to their role and hold this show up with mighty skill.
