MinnRoast 2015 video: Klobuchar provides in-flight entertainment on a trip home with Franken

An Atlanta-based Delta crew knew junior Sen. Al Franken, but had a little trouble recognizing his flight companion.

Ever since President Obama called Al Franken the second funniest senator in Minnesota, U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken have brought a competitive edge to their performances on the MinnRoast stage.

Here for your enjoyment is a brief excerpt from Sen. Klobuchar’s 2015 appearance, edited by videographer Steve Date. Coming soon: Sen. Franken’s appearance. Once you see both excerpts, you decide who’s funnier.
