David Spade recently addressed Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, and others leaving SNL.
David said, “SNL has been around, we do that podcast kinda about it and we talk about it a lot.”
He continued, “We hung in there. And it’s a F**king beating. It’s tough on the brains, and it’s tough on the body.”
He added, “It’s just a hard place to be. The ones that go 8, 9, 10 years I can’t even believe it.”
When Spade was asked if Pete would be considered ‘one of the greats’ in SNL history, he said, “I don’t think I have seen enough of the new cast. I would have to really review the tape.”
