Dave Chappelle hosted the post-election Saturday Night Live tonight hours after President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris gave their success speeches in Wilmington, Delaware after beating President Donald Trump The comic likewise hosted the post-presidential election episode of SNL in 2016.
In his monologue, Chappelle said:
Thank you all for being here. Pretty amazing day. You know what I was considering throughout the day today. This is truly strange. First of all, I’m nervous.
I was considering an individual I never ever actually met however I found out about all my life. I was considering my great grandpa, who obviously, by all accounts, was a really terrific guy. He was born a slave in South Carolina. Was a slave for 10 years of his life. And when the Northerners boiled down, they began educating a few of the newly-freed black children and he learned how to read.
He was enamoured with education and committed his life to three things: education, liberty of black individuals, Jesus Christ. This is a quite incredible story my terrific grandfather had, and I thought about him throughout the day since I wish I might see him now. I want he could see me since I wonder what he would say. This week I flew to New york city on a personal jet to host Saturday Night Live. Netflix started streaming a show that bears his name, Chappelle show, and HBO Max is streaming it, and I didn’t earn money for any of it.

So what I did is, I did shows in my neighbor’s cornfield. And these shows were extremely successful and might have even conserved the town and that’s something.
Regional farmers, my neighbours, started to complain that my shows were too noisy … in a cornfield! Too loud in a cornfield. I ‘d have an entire town conference about how noisy I was being in a cornfield.
It was so humiliating. I resented it. I frowned at that these nation farmers might choose that a guy like me’s fate. Individuals don’t be worthy of to do that. They haven’t seen enough, they don’t understand anything. They’re most likely watching me right now. They probably in the house like, ‘Hi come fast, come fast. The from the grocery store’s on tv.’ No you huge dummy, the person from tv is at the supermarket. He’s the kind of guy that probably has an account on farmersonly.com. You ever heard of that website farmersonly.com. The kind of website that begs the concern: Wha
