Dave Chappelle has been tapped as host of “Saturday Night Live” on November 7, the first episode following the 2020 election.
Now, if this feels like déjà vu it’s because it sorta is.
The last time Dave served as host of “SNL” was in 2016 right after Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States.
During his opening monologue Dave said:
I didn’t know that Donald Trump was going to win the election. I did suspect it. It seemed like Hillary was doing well in the polls and yet — I know the whites. You guys aren’t as full of surprises as you used to be.
But America’s done it. We’ve actually elected an Internet troll as our president. The whites were furious. I’ve never seen anything like it. I haven’t seen whites this mad since the O.J. verdict.
Dave Chappelle scooped an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance.
While I’m excited to welcome Dave back back to “SNL,” I certainly hope history doesn’t repeat itself.
In other news, Dave did a show in Atlanta on Halloween, and T.I., who was in attendance shared some behind-the-scenes shenanigans via Instagram.
