During this week's episode of Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson didn't hesitate to poke fun at his co-stars, or himself, as long as he got some laughs out of the audience. During the Weekend Update segment with Colin Jost, Davidson made fun of himself for being single, living with his mother at age 27, and having many tattoos.

"In some ways, I like the pandemic Valentine's because it's the first time being alone wasn't my fault," Davidson joked. "I spent the night eating chocolates and watching a movie with my mom, which is why I'm officially moving out of the house. One of us has to go."

Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, who hosted this week's SNL episode, asked Davidson if he really plans to move out of his mother's house. "The thing is, my mom is a lot like this show," said Pete. "No matter what I do, I'm never asked to leave. Also, they're both really old and noticeably fatigued." Davidson said that he thinks it might truly be time to live on his own, though, but assured the audience that he'll likely be staying in Staten Island.

"I can't afford Kennebunkport or Narragansett or Pepperidge Farm or wherever you live now," he said to Jost. "Me and my mom bought that house together, so for me to afford somewhere new, I'm gonna have to fight Jake Paul or steal one of Lorne's paintings," Davidson joked. Pete also discussed the plethora of tattoos throughout his body and imagined what he'd look like without them.

"I saw a picture of myself without a shirt, and I look like a toddler went to prison," said Davidson. "I look like I'm carrying a shiv but only to poke open a Capri Sun." This week also marked Regé-Jean Page's first time hosting SNL, after becoming incredibly popular on the series Bridgerton, which first hit Netflix in December of 2020. Overall, it looks like viewers loved the latest episode, with Page as a host and Davidson beginning his usual humor to the Saturday Night Live stage. So, do you think Pete will finally move out of his mom's house?
