Saturday Night Live has snagged Dave Chappelle. He will be hosting the Nov. 12 show. This will be the comedian’s first time hosting the show. A Tribe Called Quest, who are about to release their first album in 18 years, will serve as the musical guest. Chappelle is a stand-up comedian, screenwriter, producer, and actor. After beginning his film career in 1993 as Ahchoo in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights, he landed supporting roles in box office hits including The Nutty Professor, Con Air, and Blue Streak. His first lead role was in the 1998 comedy film Half Baked, which he co-wrote with Neal Brennan.
In 2003, Chappelle became more widely known for his sketch comedy television series, Chappelle’s Show, also co-written with Brennan, which ran until his retirement from the show two years later. The show continues to run in late-night syndication and on television networks around the world. Chappelle lives with his family in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and continues to perform stand-up comedy.
