Pete Davidson confirms he's leaving 'SNL' with heartfelt goodbye post

The 28-year-old comic joined “SNL” in 2014 when he was just 20 years old. He was one of the youngest cast members ever. 

After eight years, comedian Pete Davidson is leaving "Saturday Night Live." 

On Saturday, May 21 — ahead of the "SNL" season finale — Davidson confirmed the news, sharing some behind-the-scenes video of his first sketch ever with a heartfelt caption. 

When I got the show I was 20 years old and I had no idea what I was doing," he said via a post on the Instagram of creative partner Dave Sirus. 

I still don’t but especially back then. I wasn’t really a sketch performer I was just a stand up 

I got to share so much with this audience and literally grow up in front of your eyes," Davidson continued. 

We were together through the good and the bad, the happiest and the darkest of times. 

I owe Lorne Michaels and everyone at SNL my life. Im so grateful and I wouldn’t be here without them.
