“I never imagined this would be my life,” Davidson said. “At the time, I was a skinny kid who no one knew what race I was. And now everyone knows I’m white because I rarely show up at work and have great success. Look at me now, I’m like an old banana.”

During the segment, “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels said during his first audition that Davidson thought Davidson wasn’t a good fit for the show, but said, “Let’s work it out together.”

“And that’s exactly what we did,” Davidson said. “So people who think I don’t deserve this job shouldn’t hate me because we have so much in common. For example, if there’s anything I inspire, literally anyone will be on ‘Saturday Night Live’ I hope I can.”

Before the show, Davidson said his official goodbyes on Saturday. Instagram “I have a lot to share with this audience,” he wrote. “I literally grew up right before your eyes.”
