Al Franken has had several careers. He was one of the original writers and cast members of Saturday Night Live in the mid-1970s. In fact, he was with the show for 15 years.
Later he became a liberal commentator, with his own radio show.
Then there was a short-lived NBC sitcom called Lateline..
And then, in 2008, he ran for the United States Senate from Minnesota. And he won. Six years later, he was re-elected.
But he was forced to resign his senate seat in early 2018, after allegations of sexual misconduct.
Al Franken is now 70 years old. He can be heard Saturday mornings on Sirius-XM Radio. And he’s currently on a 15-city live tour.
