He soon branched into writing beginning with ABC’s Fridays in which he was also cast. Up next was NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Larry wrote for SNL for a year between 1984 and 1985.

Does Larry David Have Any Relationship with Bernie Sanders? Here’s the Surprising Truth!

Larry David who was born in 1947 and Bernie Sanders born in 1941 have always shared a noticeable physical resemblance. For this reason, David made an impression of Bernie Sanders during Democratic primaries leading up to the 2016 US presidential election when Sanders ran against Hillary Clinton; and it came out so right. Larry parodied Sanders on an episode of SNL.

As a matter of fact, the parody was so exact that it became an important program on Saturday Night Live. David later revealed that Bernie and his other cousin shared almost the same voice, so he had it registered in his head which made spoofing Sanders much easier. Bernie also disclosed that people told him David played a better him. Little did they know there was something more about them – they only needed to look a little deeper into their lives.

But it wasn’t until PBS genealogy series, Finding Your Root did some homework that they uncovered an even bigger surprise. Turns out the two men shared DNA history. In fact, they are distant cousins according to the DNA tests. Both the comedian and the Vermont Senator were shocked to learn they shared Ashkenazi Jewish background. But of course, they were very excited to learn that they were related after all.
