Video Surfaces of Comedy Sketch Similar to Al Franken Allegations (UPDATED)


A video depicting a sketch comedy routine very similar to recent allegations made by Leeann Tweeden and Al Franken has surfaced.

In the clip, an actress is seen performing on a stage with Franken — as the two were lead talents in an overseas USO tour in 2003. The two are discussing why she is wearing a negligee — a type of lingerie — to which she says to a soldier actor, “I’m wearing this because I want to give myself to you completely.”

However, just prior to her kissing the other actor, she goes over the profession of love with Franken — which is when the two kiss. “Al, you just wrote this so you could kiss me — I’m so onto you! If I were going to kiss anybody, it would be one of these soldiers out here!”

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post has been edited since it was initially posted as an earlier version incorrectly identified the woman in the clip as Leeann Tweeden. Mediaite regrets the error.
