About Samantha Bee

In the male-dominated world of political satire, Samantha Bee is a breath of fresh Canadian air. Graduating from the Comedy Central school of Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee left The Daily Show after 12 years to create her own TV masterpiece, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Thanks to a tragically horrible year in the political landscape, Samantha Bee has taken otherwise offensive words by presidential candidates and turned them into strokes of comedic genius on her show and her social accounts. Her monologue before Election Night 2016, pleading for Hillary Clinton, was one for the record books, proving that it’s hard out there to be a woman, no matter how famous you might be.
