NEW YORK (CBS SF/AP) – Comedian Dave Chappelle is set to host NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” on November 12, marking his debut appearance on the show. He will be joined by hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest.
Chappelle’s comedy career includes movie roles in “The Nutty Professor,” ”Con Air” and “Blue Streak.” In 2003, he achieved heightened fame and critical acclaim headlining his Comedy Central sketch series, “Chappelle’s Show,” until his abrupt exit early in its third season.
The appearance also marks the release of A Tribe Called Quest’s sixth and last album, the day before, Friday, November 11th. The album features André 3000, Busta Rhymes, Consequence, Elton John, Jack White and Kendrick Lamar. Tribe member Q Tip explains the new album is not a retread of “old Phife bars.” It’s “Pure.”
Founding Member and Bay Area resident Malik Isaac Taylor, aka “Phife Dawg” passed away at his East Bay home in March 2016.
