Watch Bernie Sanders and Larry David Find Out They're Related

Larry David and Bernie Sanders

On the season premiere of Finding Your Roots, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and his team of genealogists investigated the family histories of two men who have a lot in common, and even more than they think: the comedian Larry David and the Vermont senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Both are Brooklyn-born, bald-headed men in their seventies with Jewish ancestry and distinctive voices. They've been compared often; David has played Sanders on Saturday Night Live numerous times, and Sanders at one point changed his Twitter picture to a photo of David. Watch their reactions as they find out they actually are distant cousins.
