Samantha Bee has the balls to do late night with the boys.
Or at least that is the message she makes in her first promo for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the talk show she will be hosting on TBS. The start date is January 2016.
Bee was a correspondent on The Daily Show, as well as a possible replacement for when Jon Stewart left, but decided to move to TBS and do her own satirical show. The show will go alongside a comedy on the channel that she is producing, which stars her husband (and former Daily Show correspondent) Jason Jones with Natasha Zea and follows loosely on their family’s comedic travels.
With Stewart gone, the late night landscape now includes Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, and soon, Trevor Noah so it is nice to see a female face amongst the boys.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee starts in January on TBS.
