Asked how his approach to crafting a stand-up set has changed over the years in a recent Paper profile, Davidson—who earned critical acclaim for his turn in last year's Big Time Adolescence—noted that part of the inspiration behind his aversion to social media is a desire to save it all for the stage.
"Yeah, look, when I'm doing standup and stuff, nothing I ever say is coming from a hateful place," Davidson said in the cover story interview, penned by Tommy Dorfman and published last month. "And you can't know what's funny until you try it, you know? But anything I've ever said on stage or made a joke about, I don't regret it. I mean, some jokes I'm like, 'Welp, that joke sucked.' You know? But I'm never like, 'Aw fuck!' 'Cause there are times I try things that I think are ridiculous and they work. And that's what sucks about political correctness in comedy, I think that you need freedom."
As for that aforementioned Big Time Adolescence, the last we heard of the of Jason Orley's directorial debut was that the Sundance Film Festival–premiered movie had been acquired by Hulu and NEON. The film also stars Griffin Gluck and Colson Baker (a.k.a. frequent Davidson collaborator Machine Gun Kelly) and is set to drop on March 13.
