    "SNL" Announced Dave Chappelle Is Their Next Host And Everyone Is Freaking Out

    Maybe the post-election world won't be so bad after all?

    Today, Saturday Night Live announced that Dave Chappelle will be the show's host next week and everyone's freaking out.

    Dave Chappelle and @ATCQ are here next week! #SNL

    This is a big deal for a few reasons. First, Dave is a comedic genius who hasn't done a comedy sketch on TV since the abrupt ending of his beloved show on Comedy Central.

    Secondly, it will be SNL's first post-election show so while we may not know how it's all going to end, I'm pretty certain we're all going to be in the need for some comedic relief that weekend.

    And, as if Dave's return isn't enough, the musical guest will be A Tribe Called Quest! The group will also release their first album since 1998 the day before.

    Group member Phife Dawg passed away earlier this year.

    So basically this SNL episode is the bright light at the end of the tunnel that has been this election season.

    Dave Chappelle is hosting @nbcsnl on Nov 12, with A Tribe Called Quest as musical guest. This will be the greatest SNL episode of all time.

    Can't wait to see what kind of sketches they come up with. 2016 has certainly given him plenty of material.
