Bee became an essential voice in late-night television in 2016 with the debut of her TBS show, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee. The presidential election provided plenty of fodder for comedians, and the ­Canadian-born Bee used her show as a weekly platform for dispensing incisive and often provocative political commentary while standing out as a rare female voice in an overwhelmingly male late-night landscape. Thanks to a stream of viral clips that has earned Full Frontal’s YouTube channel more than 168 million views—from Bee’s interviewing President Obama to her ferociously tackling subjects like the Women’s March—Bee’s show has regularly beaten her former employer, The Daily Show, in the ratings.
