Weekend Update: Pete Davidson on Mental Health – SNL



>> THERE HAS BEEN A NATIONAL
CONVERSATION THIS WEEK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH.
HERE TO SHARE HIS THOUGHTS ON THIS TOPIC IS PETE DAVIDSON.
>> HEY. HELLO.
AS SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW, I WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH
BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER. AND DEPRESSION, I DON'T KNOW IF
YOU KNOW THIS, IS A DISEASE THAT AFFECTS MORE THAN 16 MILLION
PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. AND THERE IS NO LIKE CURE, PER
SE. BUT LIKE FOR ANYONE DEALING WITH
IT THERE ARE TREATMENTS THAT CAN HELP.
LIKE, FIRST OF ALL IF YOU THINK YOU ARE DEPRESSED SEE A DOCTOR
AND TALK TO THEM ABOUT MEDICATION.
ALSO, BE HEALTHY. EATING RIGHT AND EXERCISE CAN
MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. AND FINALLY, IF YOU ARE IN THE
CAST OF A LATE NIGHT COMEDY SHOW IT MIGHT HELP IF THEY, YOU KNOW,
DO MORE OF YOUR SKETCHES. [ LAUGHTER ]
>> WAIT, WAIT. ARE YOU SAYING THAT YOU ARE
DEPRESSED BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH AIR TIME?
>> NO. I WAS BORN DEPRESSED.
BUT IT MIGHT MAKE ME FEEL BETTER IF I WAS ON TV MORE.
>> >> I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS THE
BEST APPROACH, PETE. >> IT'S WORTH A SHOT.
I MEAN, COME ON. THIS SHOW IS LIKE EIGHT HOURS
LONG AND THERE IS 50 SKETCHES A WEEK.
IT SEEMS WEIRD YOU WOULDN'T USE ONE THEM TO FIGHT MENTAL HEALTH.
BUT I GUESS THAT'S NOT YOUR THING.
>> MAYBE ONE APPROACH WOULD BE TO WRITE BETTER SKETCHES.
>> THEY WON'T WORK. MY SKETCHES ALL SUCK, BECAUSE
THEY'RE WRITTEN BY A DEPRESSED PERSON.
LORNE SAID THAT. >> SO IT'S KIND OF LIKE A
CHICKEN AND THE EGG THING. >> EXACTLY.
IN FACT "CHICKEN AND THE EGG" WAS ALSO A SKETCH THAT GOT CUT.
IT WAS ABOUT A CHICKEN THAT ATE EGGS, BUT IT WAS ALSO ABOUT
BLACK LIVES MATTER. >> IT SOUNDS TERRIBLE.
>> IT IS. SO I NEED YOU TO WRITE IT FOR
ME. >> WAIT, IT'S A NOT EVEN WRITTEN
YET? >> NO, I'M DEPRESSED.
LOOK — HERE. I HAVE A DOCTOR'S NOTE.
I'LL READ IT. >> FOR THE AIR TIME.
>> YEAH. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, PETE'S
— PLEASE USE PETE IN MORE SKETCHES WHERE HE GETS TO KISS
THE HOST. AND USE MORE OF HIS RAP VIDEOS,
WHICH I HEAR ARE ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD.
ALSO — THIS DOCTOR IS GOOD, MAN.
>> SOUNDS LIKE A REAL DOCTOR. >> ALSO, HE SHOULD PLAY REX
TILLERSON A LOT. SIGNED PETE DAVIDSON'S DOCTOR.
>> THAT SOUNDS LEGIT. THAT SOUNDS LIKE A LEGIT —
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] — DOCTOR, PETE.
>> ALSO, YOU LOOK NOTHING LIKE REX TILLERSON.
>> SO GIVE ME A MASK. HE LOOKS LIKE A MUPPET FELL IN A
LAKE. AND THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE MANY
JOKES YOU WILL SEE NEXT WEEK ON PETE DAVIDSON'S FIRST
IMPRESSIONS SEGMENT. >> PETE DAVIDSON, EVERYONE.
>> HOW HAVE I NOT BEEN FIRED. >> WEEKEND UPDATE.
I'M COLIN JOST. >> I'M MICHAEL CHE.
GOOD NIGHT.

  1. We need Pete Davidson on Joe Rogan

  2. "no, I'm like depressed!"

  3. This was fantastic. Props to Pete for being open and honest about his mental illness. BPD is so common, yet still so taboo.
    Good for him for finding some humor in the struggle and continuing to raise awareness for so many who struggle in silence.

  4. I LOVE Liberals they pay me not to work! Gracias

  5. Petes been on for like ten years

  6. If you’re depressed just be happy it’s not that hard 🙄🙄
    -everyone who isn’t diagnosed with depression

  7. This was actually genuis.

  8. 2:58 did Pete say “how have I not been fired”

  9. hes blinking only with his left eye the entire time

  10. not funny.

  11. Yo, I used to have depression.

  12. I'm gonna add 3 comments so this gets to 666

  13. I follow all Muppet on twitter instagram. In my childhood Sesame Street was only show for kids. On my black and white TV after school I used to sing songs with Elmo. I still love Elmo. It's very nice to see Mr Pete talks sometimes about politics. It's just my mom died in 1994 I'm 77 born as long she was alive she never showed me a single Bollywood movie. Only Sesame Street, Chips, Wild West movies, & news channel. Newspaper news. I basically grew up watching politics News so I don't know anything except politics. Still I'm not enough qualified to be given a ticket in elections so I just write speech of my boss he speaks whatever he likes but once in a moon he uses things wrote by me. I was hated on Google Plus because I pull politics in everything. I white dude fought with me for like few months he trolled me blocked me from following few things with help of his friends. He said bad things about politics. So I stopped going on Google Plus & now I hear in Feb 2019 Google Plus has been shut down. Mr Pete won't like me in real life because I watch news of politics of any country & like to talk about it my all jokes are also about politicians. I've started to follow him on twitter account in his name available on Google I'll not write him anything about politics. Same thing I do with fan club of Mr Keane Reeves. They gave me warning don't write to us if you are straight ground worker of Rahul Gandhi or you are his spy stationed in his enemy land we don't want to talk about your interest in politics. We will block you. So I try to only write them things related to them.

  14. "I have a doctor's note…. I'll read it."

    "For the air time?"

    "-yes"
