Pete Davidson Confirms His Exit From ‘Saturday Night Live’ in Emotional Message

The time of Pete Davidson on Saturday Night Live is coming to an end.

The 28-year-old cast member was rumoured to be departing the show after eight seasons on Friday (May 20).

The next day, just hours before the season finale of Saturday Night Live, Pete stated that he would be departing the show with an emotional message.

Pete used SNL writer Dave Sirus’ Instagram to share a video of comedian Jerrod Carmichael hugging him when he made his SNL debut in 2014.

“This footage was shot eight years ago. Pete added, “Jerrod emailed it to me last night and it made me incredibly emotional in the greatest way.” “At the time of the video, I had just finished my first update and drawing. It’s crazy to believe I’ll be doing my final one today. I was 20 years old when I got the show and had no idea what I was doing. I don’t now, but I didn’t back then.”

“I was more of a stand-up comedian than a sketch performer.” “I knew I’d never be able to keep up or compete with Kenan Thompson or Kate McKinnon, so I was terrified at the prospect of figuring out what I could possibly add to or do for such a storied, revered programme and platform,” Pete stated. “Since I’m a stand-up comedian, I figured I’d just try my stand-up and personal stuff on Weekend Update as myself, and I’m really glad I did.” I was able to share so much with this audience and grow up right in front of your eyes. We were there for each other through the good and bad, the happy and sad times.”

Pete ended his statement by thanking Lorne Michaels, the program’s creator, and everyone he’s worked with on the show.

Lorne Michaels and everyone at Saturday Night Live owe me my life.” I’m quite appreciative, and I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them. Pete wrote, “I appreciate you people always having my back and standing up for me even when it wasn’t popular.” “Thank you for always believing in me and remaining by my side, even when it was amusing.” Thank you for instilling in me life principles, teaching me how to mature, and providing me with lifelong memories. SNL is where I call home. Tonight’s show makes me both thrilled and sad. I can’t explain why for a variety of reasons. I’m looking forward to returning next year in a [John]Mulaney musical piece. Pete Davidson, a local young man.”

Pete isn’t the only cast member set to go after tonight’s season finale of Saturday Night Live. These three other cast members are also going, according to reports.
