Dave Chappelle's Welcome Return
20 November 2016 | by Scream1008See all my reviews

I rarely write reviews on here, but I think this episode needs a positive review to replace the negative four-star review.

Dave Chappelle hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time and brought a lot of his trademark humor from his classic sketch comedy show, Chappelle's Show, to his hosting gig. I was worried Dave would be under-utilized like some other hosts, but this was not the case: The show served him very well. Chappelle opened with a monologue that I suspect was lifted from or at least very inspired by his recent standup routines, but it was funny and big-hearted at the same time. It was great to see a sketch that packed a ton of Chappelle's Show references into it (Walking Dead sketch), as well as another sketch that thoroughly broke the fourth wall in a similar way to many of Chappelle's classic sketches (Jheri's Place).

Add in an absolutely excellent Weekend Update (with some of the best jokes I've heard from Colin and Michael) and an absolutely absurd ten-to-one sketch, and you have an all-around excellent episode on par with Larry David's episode from last year, another great first- time hosting gig.
