Shawn Mendes also joined Davidson and Sandler on their family reunion sketch. Mendes played a relative based on Sandler’s role in Big Daddy, while Davidson played a family member, based on Sandler’s role in Little Nicky.

Davidson is one the youngest cast members to be on SNL. He first entered the show in September 2014 when he was only 20 years old.

Aside from SNL, Davidson has been staying busy! He has been doing comedy shows around the US and recently finished filming a movie. According to IMDb, the comedian will be in a spin-off movie of The Big Lebowski.
