*There’s never been a “Saturday Night Live” teaser like this.
Short and sweet, NBC’s November 12th guest host Dave Chappelle is shown in slow motion simply walking into Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center to a live version of “Can I Kick It” from the episode’s musical guest, A Tribe Called Quest.
The clip is aptly titled “SNL Host Dave Chappelle Has Arrived.”
The “SNL” gig marks Chappelle’s first return to television since leaving his hit Comedy Central series “Chappelle’s Show” in 2006.
As previously reported, he made headlines during a surprise show at NYC venue The Cutting Room last weekend for defending Donald Trump, and criticizing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, saying that she was “not right.” Chappelle took issue with how the media handled the “Billy Bush tapes,” and praised Trump for his “resilience” during the backlash, comparing Trump to The Terminator.
Ultimately, Chappelle did affirm his support for Hillary, saying that he was still going to vote for her despite his grievances.
A Tribe Called Quest’s new album “We Got It From Here … Thank You 4 Your Service,” is due out on Nov. 11. It’s the last to feature founding member Phife Dawg, who died in March of this year due to complications relating to diabetes at the age of 45.
This is, and there’s much excitement leading up to it. It’s also the first time A Tribe Called Quest will perform on “SNL.” And with tonight’s presidential election finally coming to an end as the next leader of the country (USA) is decided, you can be sure it all will be covered throughout the episode.
