Many Americans in need of an outlet for their frustration and unease after the past week’s presidential election tuned into the highly anticipated SNL episode of last Sunday.
Hosted for the first time ever by comedian Dave Chappelle, it was expected to be one heck of a show. And boy, did he deliver.
Everyone who has ever seen a Dave Chappelle show knows he will joke even about the worst taboo or biggest tragedy.
And that’s exactly what he did. From the pulse nightclub shooting to the Black Lives Matter movement to, of course, president-elect Trump, he put his own unique spin on it, keenly making fun of it all, while providing the American audience with an almost cathartic outlet.
What better way to deal with your frustration than to make light of it?
