Comedian Pete Davidson, a regular on Saturday Night Live, will participate in a virtual conversation with the William & Mary community at 8 p.m. Feb. 12 as part of the university’s Charter Day celebration.

The event, hosted by Alma Mater Productions, will held via Zoom and is only open to students, faculty and staff with William & Mary email addresses; it is not open to the public. Those interested in participating must register via a form on AMP’s TribeLink or Facebook pages. The show will be limited to the first 1,000 people to sign up with a William & Mary email address.

“A Virtual Conversation with Pete Davidson” will include a 25-minute conversation moderated by a W&M student followed by a 25-minute audience question-and-answer session. Participants will be able to submit possible questions for that segment when registering for the show.

A link for access will be sent to registered participants the day of the event. No recording is allowed.

In addition to SNL, Davidson is known for his work on such projects as “The King of Staten Island,” “Big Time Adolescence” and the Netflix comedy special “Pete Davidson: Alive from New York.”

The comedic conversation is scheduled for the day after the university’s Charter Day ceremony, which will be held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual event marks the day on which the university received its royal charter in 1693.

As part of the university’s 2021 Charter Day activities, students will also be able to participate in an adventure race competition — on campus or virtually — on Feb. 12, led by AVAdventure with prizes provided in part by Auxiliary Services.
