Despite the fact that comedians are getting laughs in droves these days, to many, politics right now aren’t too funny.  So let’s have a serious discussion with a reformed comedian.  U.S. Senator Al Franken has represented Minnesota since 2008 after spending 37 years as a comedy writer, author, and radio talk show host.  Senator Franken has authored Al Franken: Giant of the Senate, a book about an unlikely campaign that had an even more improbable ending: the closest outcome in history and an unprecedented eight-month recount saga, which is pretty funny in retrospect.  He will be interviewed live on stage by stand-up comedian, actor, and host of the wildly popular podcast, WTF with Marc Maron.  Maron is the co-author of the book Waiting For The Punch: Words to Live by From the WTF Podcast, available from Flatiron Books this Fall.
