Dave Chappelle to make his debut as a Saturday Night Live host on Nov. 12

While the likes of Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck, and Drew Barrymore have hosted Saturday Night Live five times, comedian Dave Chappelle has yet to make his debut. It was announced Friday that Chappelle will host the show's first episode after the presidential election on Nov. 12.

Chappelle — who had his own sketch series Chappelle's Show until he suddenly left it in 2005 — won't be the only one making a comeback on Nov. 12. The episode will also feature musical guest A Tribe Called Quest. The hip-hop group will release their first album in 18 years the day before their SNL appearance.
