Though Pete Davidson meets musicians every week as a cast-member on Saturday Night Live, he's still 25 years old, and so has a couple blind spots when it comes to the music of the '70s and '80s. One of these, according to friend and comedian John Mulaney, is Steely Dan.


During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Mulaney told the story of inviting Davidson to see a Steely Dan concert.

The young comedian mistook the band for a stand-up show:

"[I] go to the Beacon Theatre and we run into Pete Davidson there, meet him in front, and Pete Davidson says, 'Who is Steely Dan?' And I said, 'It's a band.' And he said, 'It's not a comedian?' […] So I said, 'You don't know anything about them?' And he said, 'No,' and I said, 'Do you know anything about pop-jazz-fusion?' He said, 'No,' and I said, 'Pete, there's no way I can prepare you for what's about to happen.'"

The story takes a pretty crazy twist, so you'll probably want to watch Mulaney tell it:


That Time John Mulaney Took Pete Davidson to a Steely Dan Concert youtu.be

Apparently unable to follow the established tradition of sitting for the whole concert, Pete Davidson forced the entire audience to stand up.

Surprisingly, it was a huge success!


Fans of both Mulaney and Davidson were huge fans of the tale:



Some Twitter users were in a state of disbelief.



Mulaney's impression of his fellow comedian also got some major kudos!


The world is a little better knowing Mulaney and Davidson are hitting the town, seeing '70s pop-jazz-fusion groups.





This one goes out to you, Steely Dan. Thanks for bringing two of our favorite comedians together for an unforgettable holiday tale!

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
