Al Franken is an American comedian, writer, and politician who was born on May 21, 1951, in New York City, New York. He is best known for his work as a writer and performer on the television show “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), which he was a cast member of from 1975 to 1980 and again from 1985 to 1995. In addition to his work on SNL, Franken has also been a frequent guest on various news and talk shows, where he has often provided political commentary and analysis. He has written several books, including “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right” and “Giant of the Senate,” which detail his views on politics and his experiences as a U.S. Senator.

Franken’s political career began in 2008 when he announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate representing Minnesota as a member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. He won a close race against the incumbent Republican senator Norm Coleman and served as a senator from 2009 until 2018 when he resigned following allegations of sexual misconduct. During his time in the Senate, Franken was known for his progressive views on issues such as health care, environmental protection, and women’s rights. He was also a vocal critic of the Trump administration and supported investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Despite his controversial resignation from the Senate, Franken remains a popular and influential figure in American politics and media.
