During last year’s U.S. election, the world tuned into “Saturday Night Live” for a little comedic relief and Larry David’s spot-on impression of candidate Bernie Sanders was a part of that comfort.
Turns out, David’s take of Sanders was great for a reason, they’re actually related.
In an upcoming episode of PBS’ “Finding Your Roots”, viewers will see that David and Sanders are in fact distantly related.
According to CNN, David is supposed to keep this news on the down-low but a reporter, who has seen an early screening, asked him about his family tree during a Television Critics Association press tour.
David said he was “very happy” to learn about the new relative, adding, “I thought there must be some connection. I love Bernie.”
David’s impeccable impression earned him an Emmy nod this year.
