On the PBS show Finding Your Roots famous people are shown tracking down their family trees. Season 4 is about to begin and the preview clip shows Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David discovering they are distant cousins.
Both men seemed very pleased to find out the news. “What the hell?” David, is seen saying in the clip with a smile. As Sanders put his hand on his forehead and said, “You’re kidding! That is unbelievable!"
It makes sense the two famous men are related. David famously portrayed "Cousin Bernie" on SNL last season. Sanders for his part said, “People say to me, they talk about Larry David, and I say, ‘He does a better Bernie Sanders than I do.’ ”
