Samantha Bee has quickly established herself as having one of the most unique and sharp comedic voices on television. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Bee began her career performing as a member of the all-female sketch comedy troupe The Atomic Fireballs. In 2003, Bee joined Comedy Central's The Daily Show's "Best F#@king News Team." Bee departed The Daily Show in 2015 and currently holds the title for being the longest-serving regular Daily Show correspondent of all time (12 years).
In 2016, Bee received global recognition from the success of her very own weekly late-night comedy series, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, which premiered in 2016 and ran for seven seasons on TBS. Full Frontal offered a unique satirical take on weekly news and explores other important stories in-depth that have been largely overlooked by more traditional media outlets. In a landscape of male late-night talk show hosts, critics appreciated Bee's "fiery and fierce" delivery (New York Times) and embraced Full Frontal as a "daring, innovative addition to the late-night slate" (Entertainment Weekly).
Bee is the author of the essay collection I Know I Am, But What Are You? and has been featured in TIME 100: The Most Influential People.
