During the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson hit a slam-dunk. As he was involved in an episode hosted by Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, the actor and comedian scored high marks.
Pete notably appeared as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo during the show’s cold open, a rapper in a skit titled “Loco” and as the winner of a contest named “Mr. Chicken Legs.”
When he did a schtick with “Weekend Update” host Colin Jost, probably his most effective skit was where he joked about living with his mom and how “old” the show was.
Pete spoke about spending his mother’s Valentine’s Day at home.
“In some ways, I like the pandemic Valentine’s because for the first time being alone wasn’t my fault,” he said. “I spent the night eating chocolates and watched a movie with my mom, which is why I’m officially moving out of the house.”
“My mom has, like, way more of a case to take over my finances than, like, Britney’s dad ever did,” he continued.
“I was like ‘Wait, she can do that? And she hasn’t? Doesn’t she love me?’
“All Britney did was shave her head,” Pete said. “I got a life-sized tattoo of the Tootsie Pop owl.”
It contributed to a conversation about Pete’s tattoos. Colin asked whether he was planning on losing any of his ink.
“I saw a picture of myself without a shirt and I looked like a toddler went to prison,” he laughed. “I look like I’m carrying a shiv, but only to poke open a Capri Sun.”
Colin spoke to Pete about why he felt he had to move out of the house he and his mother had bought.
“The thing is my mom is a lot like this show. No matter what I do, I’m never asked to leave. Also, they’re both really old and noticeably fatigued,” he laughed.
He said he will have to get his own place on Staten Island because he can’t afford a more expensive area to live in, unlike Colin, who is married to actress Scarlett Johannson.
“I can’t afford Kennebunkport or Narragansett or Pepperidge Farm or wherever you live now,” he said to the anchor who claimed that the couple’s residence likely has more boats than people.
Mother and son are “roommates” Pete previously joked on a 2019 episode of the Netflix series “Dressing Funny.”
“You know how your mom like, could be cool to everybody, but it’s like, your mom. So you love her, but you’re like, chill out dude,” he shared.
“It’s weird living with my mom and sister [Casey] because I’ll see a strange dude in the house and I don’t know if he’s some dirtbag preying on my sister or the saint who’s going to take my mom off my hands,” Pete exclaimed.
