Samantha Bee's Headshot

Samantha Bee

- Panelist Blurb

Samantha Bee is a featured correspondent for The Daily Show and now holds the title of Most Senior Correspondent, having systematically eliminated all those before her. She is best known for segments where she coaxes people into caricaturing themselves. Her reports include: Twitter Frenzy, Long Island Wants to Secede, Half Baked Alaska, Books, and NILF.

Bee is married to fellow Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones. They live in Manhattan with their two children, Piper Bee-Jones (really) and Fletcher Jones. She was born and raised in Toronto Canada and understands that, yes, it's very clean there.

Having no appreciable skill set or professional aspirations, she turned to acting and found it compatible with her lazy lifestyle. In 2003 she joined the cast of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and has most recently filmed a tiny part in a Woody Allen film, which she is praying won't be cut. Bee is the recipient of the 2005 Canadian Comedy Award for "Pretty Funny Female," but nobody ever thought to send her the statue. When Bee is not working she enjoys photographing her children in foolish outfits and correcting spelling errors on menus. Her "safe word" is "horseballs."
