Al Franken’s roots are in comedy, but his passion for politics is no laughing matter. The Emmy award-winning writer took his liberal views to the radio airwaves and became a widely-respected political commentator. In 2007, he announced his intentions to campaign for a Senate seat from his home state of Minnesota. As one of the original writers for “Saturday Night Live,” Al Franken created the famous Stuart Smalley character, which led to the film “Stuart Saves His Family.” He has since written five best-selling books about politics and hosted a long-running radio show on the now-defunct Air America network.
