We’re honored to have the man President Barack Obama calls the “second-funniest senator in Minnesota,” Al Franken, join us once again for MinnRoast on April 25. Franken has kept a straight face as our junior senator and, as acknowledged in the clip below, MinnRoast is the only time of the year he allows himself to be funny.

MinnRoast 2014 is our seventh annual song-and-skit variety show featuring your favorite local politicians, journalists, and media types. All proceeds support MinnPost, your online source for local, high-quality, independent news coverage for Minnesota.

Sen. Franken will be joined this year by comedienne Lizz Winstead, Gov. Mark Dayton, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, Tesfa Wondemagegnehu & VocalEssence, K-TWIN’s Brian “B.T.” Turner, former state Sen. Amy Koch and more.
