Comedian Tiffany Haddish, the breakout performer in last summer’s Girls Trip, will host the Nov. 11 edition of Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Taylor Swift.

As previously announced, Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm) will host this weekend’s episode (his second), with musical guest Miley Cyrus. And NBC revealed Monday that Chance the Rapper will be a first-time host Nov. 18, with Eminem as his musical guest.

Haddish’s first hosting stint will promote a new book, The Last Black Unicorn, an “unflinching collection of (extremely) personal essays,” to be published Dec. 5. Along with her breakout role in Girls Trip, Haddish had her first stand-up special, Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From The Hood to Hollywood, aired Showtime this past August.

She also co-starred in NBC’s canceled “The Carmichael Show” and appeared on Jay-Z Moonlight video, where she, Issa Rae, Jerrod Carmichael are featured in a Black “Friends” skit.

In addition to other feature films like “Keanu,” Haddish is featured in Tracy Morgan’s TBS comedy series, “The Last O.G.,” now scheduled for early next year. She’s currently filming “Night School,” directed by her Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee and co-starring Kevin Hart and Insecure’s Yvonne Orji.

Haddish will be 12th black woman to host. This past March Oscar winner Octavia Spencer hosted the show, and Taraji P. Henson had the honors during its 40th Anniversary in 2015.
