Pete Davidson made his return to SNL over the weekend in good spirits, even mocking his recent personal crisis .
Davidson made his appearance during SNL’s Weekend Update segment, appearing alongside comedian John Mulaney, and addressed the rough patch he’s had, in particular, the alarming suicidal thoughts he shared last month.
“I’ve had a really crazy month, and I want to talk about something that matters a lot to me,” Davidson opened, “Oh, okay. Mental health?” the “Update” host Colin Jost asked. “No,” Davidson replied, “the new Clint Eastwood movie The Mule!”
Mulaney chimed in, “For real, I’ve been spending a lot of time with Pete to try to show him that you can have a life in comedy that is not insane, a sober, domestic life.” (Mulaney himself has been sober for many years)
“Yeah, and after observing John’s life, I publicly threatened suicide. I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t make that joke, but it is funny,” Davidson said with a laugh,
“Pete, look me in the eye,” Mulaney said. “You are loved by many, and we are glad you are okay. Now, back to The Mule.”
