Dr. Ben Carson is bringing some comedy into the Senate confirmation hearings of President-elect Donald Trump's cabinet picks.
On Thursday he went before members of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee to take questions on a variety of topics.
During the hearing, Dr. Ben Carson told Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), "You remind me of Columbo."
Many people in the room laughed and then Sen. Brown exclaimed that he'd "heard that one before!"

Peter Falk starred as "Columbo" in the long-running TV series named after his character, an unassuming, disheveled police detective of Italian descent. His trademarks include wearing a raincoat over his suit and smoking a cigar.
