The first Saturday Night Live to air after Election Day will certainly provide some much needed comedic relief after what has felt like a decades-long campaign season comes to an end.  Comic Dave Chappelle – who you might know as “Rick James, Bitch” – will debut as host of the November 12 show.

Musical guests, A Tribe Called Quest, which is releasing We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service – its first album since 1998 the day before – will perform.
