Dave Chappelle was the guest star on Saturday Night Live and it could not come at a better time. The iconic comedian had the material of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris winning the election just hours prior which was comedy gold.
He would speak on the 46th president, but also take aim at number 45 as President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic was at the core of his displeasure and joke.

I'm a huge fan of stand-up, but for my money Dave Chappelle is at the top of the mountain of this generation. He's both funny and makes you think about social issues and feel things in ways you might not on your own. George Carlin had the same thing with the English language.

There was also a skit making light of the social climate of 2020 which saw the end of companies using stereotypical characters to sell their products such as Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben.
