However, one of the night’s memorable sketches featured a surprise appearance from Pete Davidson playing Dog The Bounty Hunter, in which the 27-year-old comedian poked fun at the recent hunt for Brian Laundrie in the Gabby Petito case during a school board meeting. He said:
“As you know, I’ve joined the hunt for Brian Laundrie. So my question to you is: do you know where he is? Cause I can’t find this dude anywhere! I’ve got no leads on this guy. Either he’s good, or I’m bad: one of the two!”
