Dave Chappelle is finally going to host Saturday Night Live, with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest, on November 12—the first show after Election Day.

The comedian is obviously most famous for the influential Comedy Central show, Chappelle's Show, before abruptly dipping out during the third season in 2005. Recently, Chappelle's been putting on small stand-up shows around New York and reportedly using them as an opportunity to try out some new anti-Trump material. Hopefully we'll get a taste of that on SNL.

It'll be A Tribe Called Quest's first time on the show, too, just months after the death of founding member, Phife Dawg, who passed away last March. The group is promoting its first album in 18 years, We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service.
