Minneapolis City Council Member Abdi Warsame

We’re pleased to announce Minneapolis City Council Member Abdi Warsame will be appearing on the MinnRoast stage for the very first time this year. Warsame will be the first sitting council member to join us for the annual event, now in its ninth year.

MinnRoast has become a highlight of the Minnesota political calendar, bringing policymakers and journalists together to poke fun at each other and the state we all love in songs, skits, and monologues.

Joining Council Member Warsame this year will be Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, Rep. Tom Emmer, Sen. Al Franken, soprano Maria Jette, radio personality Brian “BT” Turner and more. You can find more information about the event and special guests here.
