A candidate for president, a U.S. senator, and a Dr. Seuss-inspired poet? Last year Sen. Amy Klobuchar had the crowd at MinnRoast in stitches recounting her negotiation of baby privileges on the Senate floor through nursery rhyme. What does Sen. Klobuchar have in store for her video appearance this year? You’ll have to buy a ticket to find out!

MinnRoast is the highlight of Minnesota’s political calendar. Every year politicians, journalists, actors, and singers converge at the State Theatre to gently skewer Minnesota politics and each other.

Klobuchar joins a packed cast including: Gov. Tim Walz, Sen. Tina Smith, KARE11’s Jana Shortal, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey,  St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, the entire Minnesota delegation to the U.S. House, actress Sally Wingert, choral group OutLoud!, and more!
