He continued: “It’s crazy to think that today I’ll be doing my last one.

“When I got the show I was 20 years old and I had no idea what I was doing. I still don’t but especially back then.

“I wasn’t really a sketch performer I was just a stand up.”

Pete continued: “I knew I could never keep up or go toe to toe with a Kenan Thompson or a Kate McKinnon so I was super scared at figuring out what I could possibly bring to or do for such a historic, respected show and platform.

“I figured since I’m a stand up I’ll just try my stand up and personal bits on Weekend Update as myself and I’m so glad I did.

“I got to share so much with this audience and literally grow up in front of your eyes.”

Pete added: “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.”

The post concluded: “Im so grateful and I wouldn’t be here without them. I appreciate you guys always having my back and sticking up for me even when that wasn’t the popular opinion.

“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.

“SNL is my home.”
