Dave Chappelle has been confirmed as the host of next week's episode of Saturday Night Live.
The news about the 49-year-old comedian was confirmed during last night's episode of the long-running sketch comedy show, which was hosted by Amy Schumer.
It was pointed out that the forthcoming installment of the series would air just after midterm elections are set to take place in the United States.
Chappelle is also set to be joined by rap duo Black Star, who will serve as the evening's musical guests.
Variety reported that the comedian's appearance on the show would mark the third time that he would host the program following an election.
The performer's debut as the series' host took place in November of 2016, just after former president Donald Trump was elected into office.
During his appearance, the actor spoke via USA Today about the implications of the former television personality's then-new position as the head of the country.
'America's done it — we've actually elected an Internet troll as our president,' he stated.
However, Chappelle unexpectedly ended his opening monologue on a positive note.
He stated: 'I'm wishing Donald Trump luck, and I'm going to give him a chance, and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too.'
