Eddie Murphy was the host on this week’s Saturday Night Live, his first time back on the show in a long, long time. To kick off the show, Murphy welcomed a who’s who of black comedians who had hoped to get their pitches in for skit ideas on the show, including Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Keenan Thompson.

They did a hilarious callback to some of the best Murphy sketches of all time, including Mister Robinson’s Neighborhood.

“Home for the Holidays” was damn near perfect.
