From winning a slew of awards to releasing a chart topping album, it’s clear that Chance The Rapper is a skilled emcee. Who knew that the Chicago native could double as a hilarious host and sketch comedian? Last night (Nov. 18) Chance successfully hosted an epic episode Saturday Night Live.
The Coloring Book rapper opened the night with a hilarious sketch about the lack of songs centered around Thanksgiving. Proclaiming, “I want to become the Mariah Carey of Thanksgiving,” Chance then performed a hilarious song chronicling the woes of awkward Thanksgiving family dinners.
One of the most hilarious sketches of the night came when Chance teamed up with SNL stars Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd for a 90’s R&B boyband tribute to former president Barack Obama. “Come back, Barack” followed the trio as they reminisced about how much they miss the 44th president.
Keeping the funny coming, Chance the Rapper starred in a skit where he channeled a California surfer dude/ porno pizza delivery guy.
One of the most surprising sketches of the night came as Chance starred as a student sitting through a boring career day. Things took an awkward turn when Chance proclaimed, “Your job is just so cool, you’re making the entire class horny,” before stripping down to his boxers.
Before the night concluded, Chance The Rapper went on appear in skits as Steve Harvey’s unknown son in a Family Feud recreation and accusing Batman of “excessive force” in Black neighborhoods.
