Al Franken and Samantha Bee & Jason Jones on Q: The Interviews

frankenbeejones.jpgJuly is comedy festival season in Toronto and Montreal, so this week, we're revisiting two comic classics on Q: The Interviews.

First up is Al Franken. He got his comedic start as a writer and performer for sketch staple Saturday Night Live, before becoming a political commentator. Then, he threw his own hat into the political ring, running for (and winning) the title of U.S. Senator in Minnesota. Jian talked to him back in March 2008, during his run for office. (LINK)

Samantha Bee and Jason Jones (who hail from Toronto and Hamilton, Ont., respectively) are the married Canadian comedians who found fame on satirical news show, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Since making their marks, each has gone on to perform on TV and in film, including appearing together in the feature Cooper's Camera. Jian chatted with the couple during the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Cooper's Camera in 2008.
