Samantha Bee

Host of "Full Frontal" on TBS & Former Correspondent at "The Daily Show" With Jon Stewart

Samantha Bee Biography

Samantha Anne Bee is a Canadian-American comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actress and television host. Bee rose to fame as a correspondent on "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart, where she became the longest-serving regular correspondent. In 2015, she departed the show after 12 years to start her own show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Bee became a US citizen in 2014, while retaining her Canadian citizenship. In 2017, Time named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world on their annual Time 100 list.

Bee was born in Toronto, Ontario, the daughter of Debra and Ronald Bee. She attended Humberside Collegiate Institute and York Memorial Collegiate Institute. After graduating from high school, Bee attended McGill University, where she studied humanities. Dissatisfied with a range of issues at the school, she transferred to the University of Ottawa after her first year. At the University of Ottawa, Bee signed up for a theatre class, thinking it would be easy. The class led to Bee discovering her love of performing. Bee later enrolled in the George Brown Theatre School in Toronto.

Bee became a correspondent for "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart on July 10, 2003. Bee was the sole female correspondent on "The Daily Show" from her debut in 2003 until Kristen Schaal joined the show in March 2008. She was "The Daily Show's" first non-US citizen correspondent. Bee authored a book titled "I Know I Am, But What Are You?," which was published in 2010. She became the longest-serving regular "Daily Show" correspondent after passing Stephen Colbert's record in 2011. The same year, Bee collaborated with her longtime friend Allana Harkin on the parenting blog "Eating Over the Sink" for the online magazine Babble.

In March 2015, it was announced that she would leave "The Daily Show" – after 12 years – to host her own satirical news show on TBS. Bee departed "The Daily Show" on April 30, 2015. Her new show, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee," debuted on February 8, 2016. With the program's debut, Bee became the first woman to host a late-night satire show. Bee also tried to implement a hiring process which would give her show a more diverse staff than what is typical for a late night comedy show. The first season of "Full Frontal" generated critical acclaim and in November 2016, the show was renewed for a second season throughout 2017. Bee is also an executive producer of the TBS comedy series "The Detour" (2016–present), which she created with her husband, Jason Jones. One year into Bee's run on "Full Frontal," Time named Bee one of the 100 most influential people in the world. In July 2017, Bee's "Nasty Woman Shirt" campaign raised over $1 million for Planned Parenthood, and in January 2018, TBS renewed "Full Frontal" for a third and fourth season, set to air through 2020.

In December 2018, it was announced that Bee has launched a new production company, called Swimsuit Competition, as well as signing a first-look deal with TBS. The company will focus on narrative and develop documentary television projects for TBS.
