Dave Chappelle Will Make a Big Return to TV
He’ll host Saturday Night Live later this month.
NBC has announced that Dave Chappelle will host Saturday Night Live on November 12, marking his biggest TV appearance since Chappelle’s Show ended in 2006. Chappelle walked away from a $50 million dollar contract and the public spotlight nearly a decade ago, and has since made few appearances. Recently, he’s been returning to stand-up with some intimate shows, along with major amphitheater performances.
This marks the comedian’s first time on Saturday Night Live on an episode that includes musical guest A Tribe Called Quest. On November 5, Benedict Cumberbatch will also make his debut on the show with musical guest Solange.
