SNL fans are in for a treat tonight! Dave Chappelle will be hosting Saturday Night Live, with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest

Chappelle is known for his testy, unpredictable commentary on race, and we’ll most likely hear some of that tonight. One of his more famous sketches, according to the Washington Post, is called “Frontline”, a parody in which Chappelle plays a blind KKK member who didn’t know he was actually black. The outlet boasts that Chappelle will be the perfect host for the first SNL in “Trump’s America”.

Chappelle gained traction in the entertainment industry at a young age. At 19, he had made his film debut as “Ahchoo” in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights. In 1995, he appeared on ABC’s sitcom, Home Improvement. His small role on the series was so successful that the network agreed to give him a spinoff show titled Buddies with Jim Breuer (Breuer was eventually replaced with actor Christopher Gartin). The show premiered in 1996, and was cancelled after just five episodes.

In 1996, Chappelle appeared in the comedy film The Nutty Professor with Eddie Murphy. His first starring role came in 1998, in the stoner film Half Baked. In December of that year, Chappelle appeared in Tom Hanks’ film You’ve Got Mail. His first HBO special, Dave Chappelle: Killin’ Them Softly, was recorded in 2000.
