A noted political commentator and satirist, Franken also produced and starred in the NBC sitcom LateLine (1998) and wrote four books about politics, including "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot." A graduate of Harvard, Franken lives in Minnesota with his wife and two kids. In 2008, Franken ran for the Senate as a Democrat, and won after an extremely close race.  See full bio on IMDb »
