Dave Chappelle Prepares to Host 'Saturday Night Live' in New Promo Video

Billboard

The moment the world has long been waiting for is just a few days away. After shying away from cameras for almost 10 years, since the final Chappelle's Show episode, Dave Chappelle will step in as the host for Saturday Night Live on Nov. 12, with A Tribe Called Quest joining him during his hosting debut. 

In a slow-motion 15-second clip previewing his episode, Dave Chappelle arrives at 30 Rock in NBC Studios, as he makes his way to his dressing room. The intro to Tribe's golden-age classic "Can I Kick It?" lingers in the background and finds the comedian basking in the silence of an empty venue.


The highly anticipated episode comes just days after Donald Trump's victory in the presidential race (Nov. 8), and Dave Chappelle wasn't tight-lipped on the two candidates running for office. "She's going to be on a coin someday. And her behavior has not been coin-worthy," he said during his stand-up comedy set, according to The Observer. "She's not right and we all know she's not right." He even went on to call Trump "gangsta".
