Al Franken Says Goodbye To Tom Davis, His Comedy Partner

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.

Al Franken is dead, too.  In his case it's just from the neck up.

Thanks Michael.  I watched Franken earlier.  It was lovely.  And thanks for the Julia Child link.  I have been meaning to look that up.

The voters of Minnesota should congratulate themselves on having sent this man to the Senate.  I hope they havethe sense to keep doing it.

If only all our politicians could have the heart, sense of humor and knowledge of issues that Al Franken has.

Thank you Michael, Franken's tribute was very moving. I watched and enjoyed both. The good old days when SNL was actually L.

Watched Senator Franken's tribute last night - well worth the 20min. An Excellent remembrance of a dear friend. RIP.

Side note: I was in my early teens when SNL started and it felt like being a "grown up" to stay up until 1AM to watch the entire show on those evening my parents were out. That said, I was obviously too young to appreciate the political humor that was "Franken amp; Davis", and generally fell asleep when they came on...

Q: What'd I miss?

SNL at its best.  Hate to say but I was in my 30s when it began.  Had to tell all my friends to watch.  SNL and All in the Family.  Comedy with bite.  Stewart and Colbert do their part now.

No time to watch, but I do remember the SNL skits [Don Pardo's "now, here's Al and Tom"].  Funny stuff.
