Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) made his name in comedy, not Congress and Howard Stern is revisiting some of Franken’s time as a Saturday Night Live cast member on the Tuesday broadcast of his SiriusXM program The Howard Stern Show.
On Monday, Stern’s show kicked off “SNL on Stern,”a week-long series that takes a look at past highlights from SNL as well as old interviews Stern had with the cast. Franken was one of the original writers and performers of the show and Stern is re-airing a 1987 clip of Franken and his SNL co-writer Tom Davis talking about Chevy Chase, also of SNL fame, and the late actor Milton Berle.
Former SNL star Darrell Hammond, best known for his impersonation of Bill Clinton, is scheduled to appear on Stern’s show this week to talk about the time he came face to face with the former president.
Catch Stern’s show on SiriusXM 100. The original broadcasts begin at 6 a.m. Monday through Wednesday and encores follow all day.
