SNL: Dave Chappelle will host the primary episode after the elections in November
Dave Chappelle will host the first post-election episode of Saturday Night Live on November 7th, NBC has announced.
If you’re experiencing déjà vu, it’s because Chappelle directed the last SNL appearance after the election, just four days after Donald Trump won an unexpected win over Hillary Clinton. The comedian used his 2016 monologue to discuss America’s decision to vote for its first “internet troll” (see here).
Chappelle’s episode was ranked the best episode of season 42 (according to TVLine readers) and earned the comedian an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor on a Comedy Series. Not a word yet about who will come to him as a musical guest.
Saturday Night Live returned to its 46th season on October 3. Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issa Rae, Adele and John Mulaney acted as presenters for the first five episodes. Musical guests included Megan Thee Stallion, Jack White, Justin Bieber, HER and The Strokes.
NBC has not announced any more episodes after November 7th. SNL will be on hiatus after an unprecedented run of six consecutive episodes.
