Franken returns to comedy for Don Shelby roast
St. Paul, Minn. — Don Shelby signs off for the last time on Monday as an anchor for WCCO-TV. Last month, Shelby was honored and lampooned at All-Star roast in downtown Minneapolis. Among the roasters: Polar explorer and educator Ann Bancroft, former Republican Sen. Norm Coleman and current Democratic Senator Al Franken.
Franken, a former comedian, has mostly kept his sense of humor in check since narrowly winning Coleman's Senate seat last year. But at the Shelby roast, Sen. Franken showed he hasn't lost his comedic chops.
