June 29, 2022
Al Franken's comedy tour has mostly consisted of performances in theaters. But he's making an exception for the Twin Cities.
The former senator has announced that he'll be doing stand-up at Minneapolis' Acme Comedy Co., a venue that seats about 300 people. Fans can catch him there Aug. 17-20 for $27.75.
Franken, one of the first writers for "Saturday Night Live," returned to his comedy roots last summer, popping up in New York clubs before launching a nationwide tour that included a stop at Minneapolis' Pantages Theatre. He also hosts a weekly podcast that features interviews with journalists, politicians and comedians.
