    Synopsis

    Hailed by Rolling Stone as “the best thing to happen to late-night TV”, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is an Emmy®-nominated weekly late night comedy series hosted by Samantha Bee, the longest-serving correspondent on the 23-time Emmy®-winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, one of the most iconic satirical comedians of our generation and watched by a record-breaking 5.1 million U.S. viewers.

    As the only female host in late-night, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee offers a unique satirical view on headline news and a hilarious no-holds-barred voice on a variety of diverse and controversial topics overlooked by traditional media outlets. Samantha Bee brings a fresh voice to late-night television with her nuanced view of political and cultural issues, sharp interview skills, repartee with world leaders and, of course, her signature wit.
