New Web Series BOILING THE FROG with SENATOR AL FRANKEN Launches Today
We bet you didn't think climate change could make you laugh! But this new series can...
The Primetime Emmy® Award-winning television and digital series YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY has joined forces with Funny Or Die to launch a new digital series which tackles the issues surrounding climate change with humor.
Episode 1: Intro
Senator Franken talks about climate change by making an analogy: an overweight heavy smoker wants to find a DOCTOR WHO WILL tell him he doesn't have to change his lifestyle at all. The question is, just who is this doctor?
Senator Franken tells Letterman about who is behind a lot of the inaction in Washington on climate change. He calls them Siegfried and Roy, and they have Franken's Republican colleagues running scared. Who are these guys?http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/1d1411374f/boiling-the-frog-ep-2-siegfried-and-roy Episode 3: Little Rhody
Senator Franken wants Letterman to hear about a real solution to climate change. Behind Franken's senate office door is just the man to explain it. Hint: he's from "Little Rhody."
