Alan Stuart "Al" Franken (born May 21, 1951) is an American comedian, producer, and politician serving as the junior United States Senator from Minnesota since 2009. He became well known in the 1970s and 1980s as a performer on the television comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL). After decades as an actor and satirical writer, he became a prominent liberal political activist before running for a seat in the U.S. Senate as the nominee of the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party (DFL), an affiliate of the Democratic Party.

Franken was first elected to the United States Senate in 2008, defeating incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman by a narrow margin of 312 votes out of nearly three million cast. He was a popular Senator and easily won reelection in 2014 over Republican challenger Mike McFadden. On December 7, 2017, after several accusations of sexual misconduct, Franken announced his intention to resign from the Senate.
