Before there was Minnesota Sen. Al Franken, there was Franken and Davis, a comedy writing duo that became one the best comedy teams in American history. They were high school friends, who went on to become founding writers for Saturday Night Live, and much more. Davis died last week after a long battle with cancer. On Thursday, Franken took to the Senate floor to speak about the death of his friend, laughter and loss. Take the time to watch, if you can.

Here is a link to the Julia Child sketch Franken describes.
