Samantha Bee Comedy
January 10, 2012 by staff
Samantha Bee Comedy, Samantha Bee (born October 25, 1969) is a Canadian comedic actress and author best known as a cast member on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Bee was born in Toronto, Ontario into an unconventional family. Bee said, “Dating from well before the turn of the 20th century, if there has ever been a successful, happy marriage in my family lineage, I’ve yet to hear about it.”
She studied theatre at the University of Ottawa, McGill University in Montreal and George Brown Theatre School in Toronto. She was one of the four founding members of Toronto-based sketch comedy troupe The Atomic Fireballs, with whom she performed before being hired by the Daily Show in 2003.
Bee has been a correspondent for The Daily Show since July 10, 2003. On that program, Bee has demonstrated an ability to coax people into caricaturing themselves-particularly in segments like “Kill Drill”, on hunters and fossil fuel executives claiming to be environmentalists; “They So H*rny” on the dearth of Asian men in U.S. prnography; “Tropical Repression,” on Ed Heeney, a Florida politician running his campaign based on opposition to gay rights; “The Undecided”, an over-the-top look at the infamous undecided voters leading up to the 2004 U.S. presidential elections; and “Samantha Bee’s So You Want To Bee A…” report series, which humorously caricatures the way in which one can easily obtain a certain job, like becoming a 527 group. Her segment on “NILFs” (“News I’d Like to F#@k”), discussing the sexiness of news anchors is one of her most memorable[who?]: “CNN has the wholesome girl-next-door NILFs, the kind you can bring home to meet your mother. MSNBC has the dirty-over-30 NILFs. Fox has the filthy NILFs who will report anything. They’re the Hustler of NILFs.”
Bee played the title role in a live action production of Sailor Moon at the Canadian National Exhibition and has had guest appearances on several television shows. She had her first starring role in a feature film in 2004 with the Canadian independent film Ham & Cheese, alongside veteran Canadian comics Scott Thompson and Dave Foley.
