Seth Meyers Talks with Senator Al Franken for the Talkhouse Podcast

The two friends and former SNL stalwarts sit down for a conversation about politics that is as important as it is hilarious.

On a very special new episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, two men who straddle the worlds of comedy and politics – Senator Al Franken and Late Night‘s Seth Meyers – sit down for a conversation timed to the publication of Franken’s new book, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate. In a talk organized through NYC’s legendary Strand Bookstore, the two friends and Saturday Night Live alums discuss Franken’s transition from comedy to politics (including the “dehumorizing” process), our current president’s sense of humor (or lack), Franken’s take on both Republican adversaries Ted Cruz and Lindsay Graham, SNL memories of George Harrison and the “Fart Doctor” sketch, and much, much more.
