Yes. This episode of SNL is going to be legendary. Dave Chappelle is arguably the greatest living comedic mind, and we need him now more than ever. Got to give all of the props in the world to NBC on this one. Chappelle hosting a sketch comedy show would be a HUGE deal no matter when it happened, let alone the week of the most controversial presidential election of all time. For the first time in a long time, Saturday Night Live is going to be must-see television.
Here’s hoping they gave Chappelle full creative control of his monologue. Other than various stand-up events and what not, Chappelle has been relatively dormant for the last decade. Saturday will mark his first time giving comedy to the American public since Chappelle’s Show went off the air. It is going to be glorious.
