Interestingly, Murphy’s episode was also a comedian/rapper combo with Lizzo as the musical guest. Clearly, it works.

Megan Thee Stallion’s performance of “Savage” has been receiving rave reviews as she used her time on stage to advocate for Black women while dragging Kentuck Attorney General Daniel Cameron for the lack of justice for Breonna Taylor.

Another episode worth noting on your calendar is on October 17, when Issa Rae of HBO’s Insecure fame, and much more, will hold down hosting duties while Justin Bieber will be the musical guest.

The episode also featured Jim Carrey’s debut portrayal of Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.
