Pete, 28, went on to thank the show’s creator Lorne Michaels and “everyone at SNL” saying he owes his life to them, acknowledging that he wouldn’t be where he is today without their support.
“I appreciate you guys always having my back and sticking up for me even when that wasn’t the popular opinion, he wrote. “Thank you for always believing in me and sticking by my side even when it seemed comical. Thank you for teaching me life values, how to grow up and for giving me memories that will last a lifetime.”
He concluded, “SNL is my home. I’m so happy and sad about tonight’s show. For so many reasons I can’t explain. Can’t wait to be back next year in a [John] Mulaney musical number.
