Dave Chappelle is set to return to Saturday Night Live, just days after the 2020 election.

Chappelle’s return to Studio 8H comes four years after he hosted the post-election episode in November 2016.

During his monologue back in 2016, Chappelle joked “we’ve actually elected an internet troll as our president.”

He then tried to reassure those shocked by Trump’s victory. “I’m gonna give him a chance,” the comedian said, “and we the historically disenfranchised demand that he give us one too.”

Chappelle surely had no idea of the racial divisions, kids in cages, political scandals, and mean tweets that would follow over the next four years.

SNL announced Chappelle will host the Nov. 7 episode during this weekend’s Halloween-themed show hosted by comedian John Mulaney.

Jim Carrey reprised his role as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the cold open.

Carrey read a parody of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven,” and insisted “we’ve got this one in the bag.” But he received a visit from Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton in a cape, who warned don’t get comfortable because “we lost before.”
