Dave Chappelle will host “Saturday Night Live” Nov. 12, NBC announced Friday. The show will be one of his highest profile comedy appearances since the “Chappelle Show” ended in 2006.

A Tribe Called Quest will be the musical guest that night, according to Deadline. (RELATED: Dave Chappelle: ‘Black Lives Matter Is A Terrible Slogan’)

Chappelle also starred in the Mel Brooks spoof on Robin Hood, “Robin Hood: Men In Tights” and co-wrote the 1998 classic “Half-Baked.”

“SNL” has spent most of the last few months making fun of the presidential election. No word yet on what Chappelle will focus on, but since it will be the first show after the Nov. 8 election it is a pretty safe bet that the election results will be part of the show.
