You should be able to do something like this:

add_filter( 'comment_post_redirect', 'custom_comments_redirect', 10, 2 );
function custom_comments_redirect( $location, $comment ) {
    $comment_id = $comment->comment_ID;
    $custom_url = 'https://example.com/thank-you/?comment=' . $comment_id;
    return $custom_url;

And on the "Thank you" page, you can get the comment info like this:

// Make sure you sanitize the GET input
$comment_id = (int) filter_input( INPUT_GET, 'comment', FILTER_SANITIZE_NUMBER_INT );

if ( ! empty( $comment_id ) ) {
    // Fetch comment if the ID is not 0
    $comment = get_comment( $comment_id );
    if ( ! empty( $comment ) ) {
        $comment_author = $comment->comment_author;
        $comment_content = get_comment_excerpt( $comment_id );
        echo sprintf( __( 'Hi %s. Thank you for your comment "%s"...' ), $comment_author, $comment_content );
        // Do your thing here...

The default length of the comment excerpt is 20 words, but you can tweak that with a filter as well:

// Set the comments excerpt length (number of words)
add_filter( 'comment_excerpt_length', 'custom_comments_excerpt_length' );
function custom_comments_excerpt_length() {
    return 8;
