NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ Adds Post Election Special Episode
NBC’s hit sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live will air a special post-election episode hosted by comedian Dave Chappelle on November 7 and here’s what to expect.
Season 46 of SNL was originally expected to run through October 31 and end with a show hosted by comedian John Mulaney. This special post-election additional show will no doubt respond to the results of the presidential election taking place on November 3. Chappelle will act as the show’s host, just as he did four years ago in 2016.
Since its conception, the comedy show has heavily covered politics and American political figures. In this season alone, Alec Baldwin has portrayed President Donald Trump in every single episode, alongside Jim Carrey (portraying former Vice President Joe Biden), and Maya Rudolph (portraying former senator Kamala Harris). One of the regular cast members, comedian Beck Bennett, has been portraying Vice President Mike Pence. In addition to the November 7 show, SNL also had an election special this past Monday.

The musical guest for next Saturday’s show has not been announced yet. Chappelle is known for his work in the Comedy Central series Chappelle’s Show, which had its final episode in 2006. We cannot wait to watch the upcoming episode of SNL on November 7.
