This will be Chappelle's first time hosting on SNL, and his highest-profile TV appearance since walking away from his sketch show Chappelle's Show in 2005.
The episode's musical guest will be hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest, who are releasing their first album in 18 years, We Got It From Here ... Thank You 4 Your Service on Nov. 11. It will be a Chappelle's Show reunion of sorts, as ATCQ's leader Q-Tip appeared in a memorable Sesame Street spoof in a Season 2 episode.
Chappelle has kept a relatively low profile since the end of Chappelle's Show, performing stand-up but rarely making TV appearances.
SNL's next episode on Nov. 5 will be hosted by Doctor Strange's Benedict Cumberbatch, with musical guest Solange.
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC.
