    During The Hollywood Reporter's Comedy Actor Roundtable, Pete briefly addressed his future while discussing his co-star Keenan Thompson's nearly 20-season run.

    "I'm surprised I made it to seven. I'm ready to hang up the jersey. Kenan's like fucking Karl Malone out there," Pete joked.

    He later added that he'd love to emulate the careers of former SNL stars Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler.

    "You get to see a lot of people at SNL, and there's this aura around Eddie Murphy where you're just like, 'Holy shit, that's Eddie Murphy.' Sandler is like that, too; you just can't believe you're seeing him in person. I'd like the Eddie Murphy, Sandler career," Pete said.

    He added, "I like what Sandler did where he's like, 'These are my eight friends. We're going to do this formula for the next 30 to 50 years.' He built this entire universe for himself, and he's in his own lane. That's the model."

    In fact, Pete admits that he's asked Adam about how to know when it's the right time to leave the show.

    "I have a lot of conversations with people because it's a hard thing to do. You don't ever want to pull the trigger too early. Everybody's always been like, 'You'll know when you know,'" Pete said during a conversation with Charlamagne Tha God. 

    But regardless of the decision Pete makes about his SNL future, he says he's always just "very grateful" to be there.
