‘Saturday Night Live’ Books Dave Chappelle for Post-Election Episode
NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” has set its host or the post-election episode: Dave Chappelle will appear on the Nov. 7 episode of the late-night sketch comedy series.
The musical guest for the episode has not yet been announced.
The comedian previously hosted “SNL” in 2016 and also appeared in the Eddie Murphy-hosted episode just last year. Most recently he won the variety special (pre-recorded) Emmy in September for 2019’s “Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones” and released the short sand-up special “8:46” in June, which was performed and shot in a socially distant safe way during the coronavirus pandemic and featured a set in which he responded to the murder of George Floyd.
