Jack Harlow has penned a thoughtful essay about his friend Pete Davidson.
On Monday, editors at TIME magazine announced that the Saturday Night Live star had been included on the TIME100 list of "most influential" people for 2022.
Reflecting on the honour, Jack wrote a letter for the publication in which he praised his "daring, thoughtful, and simply hilarious" pal.
"Pete's appeal to the world has everything to do with his authenticity. He doesn't try to hide the person that he is. It's a classic recipe for success and connection," the First Class hitmaker mused. "I would consider myself truthful, but being around Pete makes me want to continue to reach even further for the realest version of myself.
"We don't have another one of him. He's daring, thoughtful, and simply hilarious. And he's only 28. An icon with so much more left to accomplish."
And Jack also noted that Pete had "pushed" him to perform as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live in March.
"The night before the show, I went over to Pete's apartment and he made my friend and me laugh until our stomachs hurt. I felt like I was experiencing elite comedy up close and personal," the 24-year-old shared.
Last weekend, Pete confirmed he was departing NBC's late-night sketch show after an eight-season stint.
