The Wallis and Writers Bloc Present
Senator Al Franken
In Conversation with Kathy Griffin
on Friday, July 7 at 7:30pm

(Beverly Hills, CA May 26) The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and Writers Bloc present a special one-night-only event featuring Senator Al Franken (D-MN) in conversation with stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin on Friday, July 7 at 7:30pm. The two award-winning comedians will come together on the stage of the Bram Goldsmith Theater for an intimate discussion about Franken’s new book Giant of the Senate.

Al Franken used to be a comedian, our nation’s foremost political satirist. Then he decided to run for office. His new book, Giant of the Senate, takes us deep into his unlikely campaign and into its more improbable ending—the closest Senate election outcome in history and an unprecedented eight month recount saga. Only Al Franken, a true “Giant of the Senate” could make that funny.

So what happens when an award-winning comedian with an army of loyal fans from “Saturday Night Live” and progressive radio, gets a chance to serve in the Senate? Senator Franken defies the low expectations from pundits and turns out to be good at it. Giant of the Senate is about our deeply polarized, frequently depressing and sometimes inspiring political culture. This candid memoir covers family, marriage, comedy and some of his most dramatic—and hilarious—moments in politics.

Joining Senator Franken will be Emmy and Grammy Award-winning stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin, who has starred in 20 stand-up specials, hosted and starred in her hit show “My Life on the D-List” and tours to sellout crowds all over the world. She is also a bestselling author.
