Larry David, Tiffany Haddish, Chance the Rapper to Host SNL in November

SNL has quite a host and musical guest lineup in store for next month, as announced by NBC this morning. Season 43 of the sketch-comedy institution will feature hosting appearances from Larry David on Nov. 4, Tiffany Haddish on Nov. 11 and Chance the Rapper on Nov. 18. This will be David’s second time hosting the show, while Haddish and Chance are both first-timers.

David, who spent quite a bit of time on SNL last season while playing Sen. Bernie Sanders (to whom, it turns out, he is actually related), is currently starring in the ninth season of his hit HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm. Joining L.D. on the Studio 8H stage will be Miley Cyrus, making her third appearance as SNL’s musical guest. The duo’s appearance, confirmed today, was first announced earlier this month.

Girls Trip breakout actress Haddish, whose star has risen in a big way since her appearance alongside Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith in the summer box-office smash, has an essay collection on the way called The Last Black Unicorn, due out on Dec. 5. She was also a series regular on underrated NBC sitcom The Carmichael Show—last fall, we highlighted her character as one of “35 Black Characters Making TV Great Again (For the First Time).” Haddish will be accompanied by pop music’s Regina George herself, Miss Taylor Swift, making her third musical guest appearance. Swift has put out a series of weird songs in the run-up to her sixth album Reputation, releasing on Nov. 10, the day before her SNL set.

Chance the Rapper, who has been SNL’s musical guest twice before, is essentially doing whatever he wants these days, whether it’s saving SoundCloud, headlining an Obama foundation summit or just watching a Matt Damon movie. The rapper’s Grammy-winning mixtape Coloring Book, released last summer, was one of Paste’s very favorite albums of 2016, so we can only hope that Chance the Comedian’s creative pursuits don’t eclipse Chance the Rapper’s—we need another album, stat. None other than Eminem will be the musical guest (for the seventh time!) on Chance’s episode, so Nov. 18 is sure to be a banner night for hip-hop and comedy fans alike.
